Art Galleries

The School of Design at Louisiana Tech University has two gallery spaces available to artists working in all media including: painting, drawing, video, printmaking, installation, sculpture, photography, ceramics, fiber, and digital works. Several calls for entry are open year round. The mission of the galleries at The School of Design at Louisiana Tech University is to contribute to student and community learning through exposure to the work and philosophy of nationally recognized contemporary artists working in the visual arts.

The SOD Galleries accept unsolicited submissions on a rolling basis, which are reviewed quarterly by the Gallery Committee. Artists will be contacted within six months of submission regarding acceptance via email.

Applicants must be at least 18 years of age and not enrolled in a degree seeking program at the time of entry.
