The ETSU Department of Art & Design and Slocumb Galleries in partnership with the Women’s Studies Program, Reece Museum, Honors College Student Society, SG Student Society, Alpha Xi Delta and Sigma Phi Epsilon presents the anticipated annual event Positive/Negative 34 National Juried Art Exhibition: To Make Art Now from January 28 to February 21, 2019 at the Slocumb Galleries.

The juror’s lecture and reception is on February 21, Thursday starting at 5 p.m. with lecture at 6:30 p.m., Ball Hall Auditorium.

Juror Ann Meisinger, an independent curator and assistant Educator at the prestigious Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, describes the curated exhibition that comprises the Positive/Negative 34 as, “Artwork created today is a part of personal and historic constellations. For better or for worse, today’s work is wrapped up in histories of making that stretch back thousands of years. It is also an accumulation of each individual artist’s history, education, and drive to create; both a part of and a product of their experiences and everyday existence. The everyday factors into experience in ways large and small. It is brimming with current events, climate change, churning politics, migrations, immigrants, refugees, war, plastics, deforestation, institutional racism and on and on.”
