The Third Dimension


The Third Dimension

First Annual Juried Exhibition, September 29, 2012 ( Please note: Due to unforeseen parking logistics at the University of Houston we have changed our schedule. The art show will hang the 29th at the University of Houston, It will stay up for the symposium and will then be open to the public in the evening.  This also offers the general public an opportunity to see some of the exhibits that show how some of this artwork is created.)  

The goal of “The Third Dimension” is aimed at showcasing original artwork using innovative 3D technologies that the average spectator is unlikely to experience. This exhibition is an opportunity to creatively stimulate the imagination of viewers with three-dimensional and two-dimensional artwork in all mediums. Work considered must be made with the use of 3D technology during the creative process.  The work submitted will coincide with the 3DCAMP Houston Symposium hosted by The University of Houston College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and the School of Art.


“The Third Dimension” is open to all visual artists, age 18 years or older, who work in all areas of three dimensional art. Artwork can be created in any 3D medium, including all digital and film. Adherence to the theme, however broadly applied, is mandatory.


The exhibition will be selected in two stages: an initial review and tentative selection from all digital images submitted, and a later verification of those pieces from the actual artwork. The placement for the show will be determined by the juror and gallery curators. Work which does not match the digital image in content or quality may be eliminated during the second jury session, as will improperly framed work or work that cannot be safely exhibited. Digital images of selected works will be permanently retained. In submitting work for this exhibition, artists grant 3D CAMP Houston limited license to use the images, if desired, for public relations or documentary purposes relevant to the exhibition.


All work must be submitted for the initial jury review on a CD in jpeg format and mailed to Betz Art Gallery at 1208 W. Gray, Houston, TX 77019, or e-mail small format jpeg images to A website that displays images of the artist’s work may also be e-mailed to, but be specific about which work is meant to be reviewed, indicating the page URL and the title of each work. Files should be no larger than 5MB. If it is not possible to send a file no larger than 5MB, please contact
