SWS Theme decided!

Traditionally every year to keep the 2 separate awards separate, we give them their own identities/themes.  And this year's Student Works Show theme has just been unveiled...  vintage Pop (Comic) Art!

It gives a nod to the early 1960s vintage black-tie theme of the Arties, but keeps the two distinctly different.  Plus the student works show gallery always lends itself to be a little more hip & spunky/edgy ;)

If you're still trying to figure out how the Arties are different from the SWS, we've laid it out exactly for you...check out the info in the new Facebook Event, to explain what these events are all about.  While you're there, RSVP to let us know you'll be there, and invite JBU friends & family too!

PS- Here are a bunch of great images to inspire your attire for the evening Arties event; just click the blue numbers:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30.
Also check out the links in our last post, and here's one cool modern twist on the look.

Arties/SWS: Dates, Times

Just an up date on new confirmed details...

Student Works Show submissions accepted between February 9th-11th (Wed-Fri.).  The Student Works will all be hung in the gellary which opens Feb. 17th.
All entries are $5, and $3 for COAST members.  Check back soon for some more specifics on changes to the Cinema category this year.
Any student can submit multiple works, that are original & created after last year's SWS.

The SWS Gallery Reception will be from 6-7p, before the Arties award ceremony, at 7:30p in the downtown Community Building.  The SWS & Arties winners are announced at the big event- Thursday night, March 10th.

This year's Arties theme is "Vintage Black-tie"...late '50s/'60s.  You know, 'frocks' & fedoras.  For inspiration think Mad Men, or even the wardrobe of White Collar's Neal Caffrey, for the guys.
