Kellogg Community College is looking for work from KCC Graphic Design Program alumni to feature in an upcoming art exhibit.

If you’re a former KCC Graphic Design Program student and you’re interested in participating, KCC professor Penny Rose is accepting submissions (graphic design/commercial illustration/design preferred) for the Graphic Design Alumni Show by Thursday, Jan. 14.

The show will be on display in the Eleanor R. and Robert A. DeVries Gallery of KCC’s newly renovated Davidson Visual and Performing Arts Center from Jan. 18 through Feb. 19, with an Opening Reception for exhibiting designers held Jan. 21. All submissions should be turned in at the Davidson Center office.

Guidelines for submissions are as follows:

  • All 2D drawings, photos and works on paper must be flush mounted on a backing board and/or matted. Matted artworks should be secured with mounting tape (not masking tape). Matted/mounted works (such as large size dry-mounted photographs) will be hung with pins around the border for presentation.
  • Framing is optional, but recommended. However, framed work must be ready to hang with appropriate hardware. Screw eyes and wire are preferred over saw tooth-hangers.
  • Unframed paintings on board or stretched canvas must have secure wire or hangers attached.
  • Ceramics and sculpture must be assembled by the entry deadline, ready for display and sturdy enough to move during jury process and final display.
  • Web design entries must be submitted on CD or flash drive (and must be Macintosh compatible).
  • Animation and video (4D) entries must be submitted as a file on a CD, DVD or flash drive (again, Mac compatible).
  • All entries must include a brief biography highlighting what you’ve been up to since attending KCC (additional schooling, employed, freelancing, etc.).

If you would like to participate in the show but for some reason absolutely can’t get your submission to campus in person, email Rose at
