Enter the Annual Student Art Exhibition!


Art abounds at the annual State of the Coast Conference.

Graduate students, undergraduates, and recent graduates of Oregon colleges and universities are invited to submit an application to display their artwork at the State of the Coast Conference. Accepted artwork will be a part of a student art and science juried exhibition. 

All mediums are welcome (photography, painting, sculpting, video, performance, etc.), but please submit work that fits within an area approximately 4ft x 4ft. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.

Works are reviewed according to the following selection criteria:

  • Was it submitted in time with all required pieces and in a professional manner? (artist's statement, timeliness, completeness)
  • Does the work have a connection with the marine environment/coast of Oregon?
  • Does the work provoke thought? 


  • Submissions will be accepted starting in September.
  • Submission deadline is Friday, October 11, 2019
  • By October 21st, students will be notified if their work was accepted to exhibit at the conference.
