Alumni Exhibition Submission

Highlands Alumni Art Exhibition at Kennedy Gallery

Guidelines for Submission

Deadline: March 22, 2019

Artwork Submission

Eligible Participants: include “all individuals who have graduated from NMHU, received credit for course work, or rendered outstanding service”.


NOTE: Please ensure there are no typos in your submission. The worksheet you created will help with this. The curators will select artwork, specify insurance, and generate gallery labeling directly from the unedited information you submit. Once the information has been submitted there will be no changes.

Images: Minimum 300ppi, jpegs only, no images larger than 2MB

Tips for Images: Start with the original, full-size digital files direct from the camera. Use a digital image editing program to crop and straighten your images. Next, downsize the images if necessary to a reasonable size for online transfer. A publishable size range is 6” to 8” on the long side, at 300ppi resolution. Re-save the new files as “good” quality .jpgs (#8 to #10). This should result in 800kb to 2mb files.

Change the camera-default file names to unique ID names, such as “Smith1.jpg”, “Smith2.jpg”, etc. This ensures each image will stay matched with information you submit. Use these names for the ART ID section on the following form.
