The Halpert Biennial '09 is a national juried visual art competition and exhibition that is open to all two-dimensional visual artists, who are over the age of 18 and currently residing in the United States. Any original, two-dimensional works of art including paintings, drawings, prints, photography, mixed media, and works using traditional and non-traditional materials are considered for the selection process.
The Juror will determine the final number of works selected for exhibition during the selection process, but the exhibition should feature approximately 60 - 100 works of art. Works will be exhibited in Gallery A located within the TCVA. All accepted works must be framed and ready to hang.* Works may be shipped via UPS, Federal Express, Commercial Carrier or US Mail. Return shipping should be arranged prior to shipping work to the TCVA or during the exhibition time period. Unless return postage is provided by the end of the exhibition, the works will be returned COD in the manner in which they were shipped to the TCVA. Works will not be returned before the end of the exhibition. Works of art that do not comply with the above stated conditions may be disqualified.
