Image Lists

Image lists:

Most of the time- though not all the time, you will be asked for an image list. Again- follow directions. You may be asked for titles, item numbers, year created, materials, sizes and process. Whatever you do- make sure you stay consistent in the order in which you list these things. Your image list should always include the name of the corresponding digital file. I have found that the easiest way to do this is to insert images directly into a word doc.

  • Your name.
  • Title of your work. All titles should be italicized or underlined.
  • The medium. Be reasonable in your choice of terms: “mixed-media” is not enough, but including the glue you used to put the thing back together may be too much.
  • Date of completion.
  • Dimensions. Whenever you provide dimensions for a work of art, you must use the following conventions:
  • 3-D works: Height x Width x Depth (always in that order)
  • 2-D works: Height x Width (always in that order)
  • Keep your units of measurement consistent. Within the U.S., measurements are typically recorded in feet and inches. Outside the U.S. the metric system is normally used. Both are acceptable. Whichever system you select, be consistent.
  • Location. If the work is part of an important collection or gallery show, name the gallery, and if it is a site-specific piece, indicate the location.
  • Condition. If the work has been removed or destroyed, that should be indicated.
  • Contact information: phone number and/or email.
  • Photo credit.
