Process Description:

Portfolios are juried each November by a panel of seven jurors from all different media, including sculpture, photography, painting and others. The jurors evaluate each portfolio and rate on a scale of 1 to 5. The highest and lowest score are dropped and the remaining five scores are averaged to determine the applicants final score. All artists receiving a score of 3.5 or above then become eligible to have a solo exhibit in Bear Gallery. Fairbanks Arts Association does not guarantee an exhibit based on score as preference of available months is given to those receiving the highest scores.
