Juried by Joy Davis

About the Exhibition

For 33 years, the annual National Drawing and Print Competitive Exhibition at Gormley Gallery has provided the community with a glimpse of contemporary artistic practices happening on a national level. Each year an outside juror representing a local museum or arts institution serves as curator for the exhibition, selecting the artworks for the show and awarding a purchase prize to one or more pieces. Those pieces become part of the permanent collection of Notre Dame of Maryland University and are displayed across campus.

This fall she began a new role as Visual Art Director for Baltimore’s Creative Alliance, where she oversees curatorial, film, and resident artist programs.
