Member Exhibit!
NYSATA invites its members to participate in the 2019 Member’s Exhibit. Once again, we will hold a 10x10 format exhibit. This work will be sold to benefit the NYSATA Scholarship Fund.

  • Modeled after regional 6”x6” Exhibits around the state, all 2D entries must be 10”x10” unframed/unmatted works of art. 3D entries must be 10”x10”x10”. Unframed, stretched canvas is permitted. These smaller, easier to transport           works of art should facilitate greater participation.
  • The work will be hung anonymously (artists are asked to sign the back or we will cover the signature with a post-it).
  • There will be no fee to participate and all conference attendees are eligible to submit up to 2 pieces of quality work.
  • The work will be sold for a flat $20 each on Saturday afternoon and throughout the evening.
  • All exhibit participants will have first choice for purchasing the work during a designated time. Other attendees will have an opportunity to purchase the work after that time.
  • As with previous Member’s Exhibits there will be prizes awarded for excellence. The expectation is that the work submitted to this special exhibit will be equal in quality to the work exhibited at previous conferences.
  • Contributions will be tax deductible as the proceeds will go to the scholarship fund. Receipts will be available.
  • All unsold work will be returned to the artist/member and must be picked up after the exhibit is over.
  • Members not attending should contact their regions for information on how they can participate.

Student Art Exhibit

This exhibit is free, but it is necessary to preregister to reserve a space. All preregistration will take place ONLINE ONLY through the NYSATA website. Preregistration for this exhibit is by individual teacher, not by school or district. Participating teachers must be NYSATA members.
