The 33rd Annual Positive/Negative National Juried Art Exhibition is a national juried art exhibition, organized yearly since 1985, to provide the regional communities of Northeastern Tennessee, Southwest Virginia, and nearby states, access to dynamic contemporary art practices that explore current directions in visual art. For more than 30 years, the P/N exhibitions serve as platform for dialogue to promote diversity, creative excellence and critical thinking within the academic and local communities.

This year’s Juror is Margaret Winslow, Curator of Contemporary Art at the Delaware Art Museum. Winslow has curated exhibitions for the Neuberger Museum of Art and The Delaware Contemporary and assisted with exhibits for the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum. Recent exhibitions at the Delaware Art Museum include Truth & Vision: 21st Century Realism, Dream Streets: Art in Wilmington 1970–1990, and Retro-Active: Performance Art from 1964–1987. In 2010, she attended Independent Curators International’s Curatorial Intensive in New York and in 2015, she served as juror for Art of the State: Pennsylvania at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, and the Hunting Art Prize in Houston, Texas in 2013. Public presentations include lectures at the Beijing American Center in China, the Mid-Atlantic Association of Museums, and the University of Delaware.
