TAPPED – Professors and their Current or Former Students
Please Note – this is NOT a call for collaborative works.

TAPPED will feature works made individually by each artist.

The relationship between art students and their professors can be a powerful one. Even when this bond is left unstated, we carry our professors’ voices forward in time as we mature as artists and people. We eventually realize that the instruction given by our teachers during our relatively brief careers as students continues to expand within us. We realize that the learning they inspired (or insisted upon) is a chain-reaction process that develops across our lifetime. All of us who have been students carry forward our professors’ legacy in one form or another. And those who are, or have been professors, bear witness to the potency of studenthood.

Out of respect for this student-teacher bond, and in honor of professors working hard to help their students tap into a higher mind relative to art and life, we offer TAPPED, an annual exhibit that will present works of art by current or former professor/student pairs in our galleries in Cincinnati.

It is important to note that this project is open to CURRENT or PAST student/professor pairs. The ‘student’ half of the pair may be a college freshman, a retired veteran, or at any stage in between. The sole criteria for the pairing is that the relationship between the two was a formal teacher/student one at some point in time.

Eligibility: TAPPED is open to everyone. The only limitation is that entries must represent original works of art or design and each entrant must name one current or former professor or student as an exhibiting companion.

Media: Open to all traditional and non-traditional genre and media (including video, sculpture, photography, painting, drawing, printmaking, etc.)
