500X Gallery, Texas’ oldest artist-run space, launches a new juried exhibition for college students!
Like the annual Expo juried show, 500X EXPO: COLLEGE aims to bring together artists from around the state. The exhibition offers college students an opportunity to enter into a dialogue with their Texas-based counterparts and to see work by their colleagues at other institutions. The exhibition will offer visitors an overview of the variety of perspectives that exist throughout colleges and universities in Texas.

- The entry fee is $30 for up to 5 images (includes details of work).
- All visual media are eligible, including drawing, painting, sculpture, installation and video (artist must supply all required electronic equipment).
- Artists will be notified via email Wednesday, October 6 by 8pm if the work has been accepted into the exhibition. If you do not receive an email, your work has not been accepted.
- Complex installations will be considered only if the artist is available to install.
- During drop-off, accepted entrants must show a current student ID and a printout of their Fall 2010 class schedule; there are no exceptions to this rule.

About the Juror
In her position as curator at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, Andrea Karnes has challenged audiences with exhibitions such as Hubbard/Birchler: No Room to Answer, 2009. No Room to Answer featured the collaborative photographic and video works of the Swiss/American artistic team, Teresa Hubbard and Alexander Birchler, who currently live in Austin, Texas.
In 2007 she presented Pretty Baby, a group exhibition that included the works of thirteen artists who addressed the subject of childhood, touching on everything from innocent reverie to the dark side. In 2005, she organized Pierre Huyghe: One Million + Kingdoms, and in 2004, Julie Bozzi: Landscapes 1975-2003. Karnes is currently working on the exhibition, Barnaby Furnas: States of Glory, scheduled to open in 2012.
Karnes is also curator of the Modern’s popular FOCUS series, for which she has presented the works of Vera Lutter, Cornelia Parker, Adam Fuss, Hiroshi Sugito, Nigel Cooke, Chinatsu Ban, Ralf Ziervogel, Barnaby Furnas, Banks Violette, Joshua Mosley, Kehinde Wiley, Ranjani Shettar, Jeff Elrod, Rosson Crow, Gardar Eide Einarsson, Gabriel Acevedo Velarde and Benjamin Jones. For the 2010-2011 season Karnes presents Erik Parker, Robert Lazzarini and Teresita Fernández.
Karnes was a contributing author for Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth: 110, the museum’s permanent collection catalogue published in 2002. Her other publications include, Hubbard/Birchler: No Room to Answer, Pretty Baby, Pierre Huyghe: Stranger than Fiction, and Julie Bozzi: Hidden in Plain Sight.
Karnes completed a bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Art History from the University of North Texas in 1988 and a master’s degree in Art History at Texas Christian University in May 2000. Her thesis, Sally Mann: Beyond the Black and White offers an in-depth look at the artist’s monograph Immediate Family, published in the early 1990s. Specifically addressing the critical writing about Immediate Family, Karnes examines why it was often couched within the framework of the cultural wars of the late-1980s.
