Luck of the Draw: Vol 2


LUCK OF THE DRAW: VOL 2 is a survey show, exhibiting contemporary drawings by artists from across the county. At the end of the show’s run instead of receiving their own work back, all participating artists will receive a piece created by another artist in the show. This random exchange will be determined by a live lottery done at the opening celebration on Friday May 3, 2019 hosted at the Central Library in Madison, WI.


If you’re applying to participate, here’s what you need to know:

  • Following the exhibition, rather than receiving their own work back, artists will instead receive a randomly selected drawing from the show - the luck of the draw!

  • All submitted drawings must abide by the size requirements: maximum = 24x30 in, there is no minimum

  • Drawings should be unframed as we will use map pins to install the work

  • Luck of the Draw: Vol 1 artists are not eligible to apply

  • All mediums will be considered; traditional media, digital drawing, collage, etc. if you consider it a drawing, it’s a drawing!

  • All art pieces will be insured while exhibited at Madison Public Library

  • The artist must pay to ship their piece in a reusable envelope, flat, or box

  • The cost of return shipping for received piece will be covered by the Library

  • An elected jury panel will select pieces and all artists who apply will be notified by 2/22/19 regarding submission acceptance

  • The artist does NOT need to include their Luck of the Draw final piece in this application, but it will be up to the discretion of the Gallery Director to abide by the Madison Public Library Art Policy when physical piece is received, noting:
    …We remind potential artists that many members of the public, including children and families, use Madison Public Library; the Art Coordinator reserves the right to determine what work is appropriate for each space…”
