Anything that is visually creative, feel free to submit.

There is a limit of three submissions per artist.

We also encourage submissions to be accompanied by an artist statement, preferably recorded, so we can get the feel of a virtual art show opening.

If you have questions about the submission process, please contact Allison Galloup. Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 1st.

Surveys

Art show participants will be asked to participate in a voluntary and anonymous survey before and after the art show, regarding their experience with UNG library services, marketing, and events. The results of this survey will be used in a study by University of North Georgia librarians and may be used for scholarly publications and/or presentations. The survey will be conducted using a secure, anonymous online form through Qualtrics. No one will be able to link the answers back to an individual. The survey is voluntary and should take about 15 minutes to complete. You can choose to skip questions you do not want to answer or stop the survey at any time. The information will be used to improve library services and for planning future events.
