The Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine is accepting entries for its 28th Annual International Exhibition on Animals in Art. Pieces must be original and depict an animal. Fish and insects are considered animals for the purposes of the event. The deadline for entries is Jan. 8.
The exhibition will begin with an opening reception on March 19 and then run through April 18.
A $1,000 Best of Show award will be given and one entry will be chosen to appear on the cover of the Journal of the American Veterinary Medical Association. Other awards include the Judge’s Awards and Honorable Mentions, as well as the People’s Choice Award. In addition, art show pieces may be selected for the cover of the LSU SVM’s Annual Bulletin, the LSU SVM holiday card and to promote the 2017 International Exhibition on Animals in Art.
Jonathan Mayers, a Louisiana artist and Baton Rouge native, will judge all entries. He received his BFA from Louisiana State University and his MFA from the University of New Orleans.
