Art from the 2015 show.

Artists may submit their work in two categories:
• Chancellor’s Exhibit: A jury will select one or more artists to feature in the exhibition space and in the administration corridor of the East Building. One work will be chosen for the Chancellor’s Award. The recipient is encouraged to donate the work to WSU Tri-Cities as part of its permanent collection. Those not selected for the Chancellor’s Exhibit will be placed in a community gallery for the event.
• WSU Tri-Cities student exhibit: Open only to WSU Tri-Cities students.

Because Night with the Arts is open to all ages, artists are asked to consider the audience when submitting pieces.

The event is an opportunity to showcase a range of artwork from throughout the regional community, said Amber Eubanks, WSU Tri-Cities community engagement specialist.

“We’re trying to bring the community of the arts together, showcasing everything from musical performances to the best of two- and three-dimensional art pieces,” she said. “It’s a great event for the whole family.”

To submit an art piece, fill out the submission forms at https://tricities.wsu.edu/nwta/.
