In its 30th year, the annual Positive/Negative National Juried Art Exhibition organized by the Slocumb Galleries under the Department of Art & Design at East Tennessee State University has consistently served as a platform for diverse visual art production that surveys various media, perspective and style from all over the country since 1985.
The annual, national juried art exhibition has contributed to the promotion and appreciation of contemporary art in the East Tennessee region and surrounding states, providing the academic and local communities the opportunity to engage with wide-ranging work, artists and curators/jurors that encourages cultural exchange and develops critical thinking.
