Do You Draw?
(or doodle, sketch, diagram, illustrate, design…?)

Show us! 

Submit a digital photo of your drawing to be reproduced and presented in an upcoming exhibition at Lehigh University Art Galleries!  All eligible submissions will be shown (in a digital/reproduced format, either on LUAG’s website or in the gallery) in the upcoming Fall 2021 exhibition, Thinking Through Drawing:  Works on Paper, Drawings, and Sketchbooks from the Collection and Community.

AND...your work may be considered for reproduction in a public outdoor exhibition along the South Bethlehem Greenway!

Submit your drawings here.


Who is eligible?

Everyone!  Artists and non-artists, students and adults of all ages and abilities are encouraged to submit their work.  No professional experience is required.  Parent/guardian permission is required for those under 18 years old.  Help us spread the word!  Share this opportunity with anyone you know who likes to draw.

What kinds of drawing?

All kinds!  Sketches, diagrams, doodles, designs, illustrations, data visualizations, preparatory and finished works, realistic to abstract, black and white or color--in all media--are welcome. 

Why should I submit?

All artwork will be featured (in a digital/reproduced format) in the upcoming exhibition, Thinking Through Drawing:  Works on Paper, Drawings, and Sketchbooks from the Collection and Community.  In addition, selected works may be chosen to be reproduced in an outdoor exhibition along the South Bethlehem Greenway.

Everyone who submits their drawings will be entered to win free LUAG swag, such as a LUAG tote bag, sketchbook and sketching supplies, past exhibition catalogs, and other fantastic giveaways!  All are invited to attend the opening reception of the exhibition, as well as free public programs and workshops this fall.
