|2-D art||5" x 3" - 36" x 24"|
We will not be accepting jewelry, sculpture, ceramics, or video media submissions at this time.
To submit, please click the “Submit Event” link in the left-hand sidebar. Please submit each piece individually using the “Submit Event” form. A sample submission form is included on page 3. If you have questions about the submission process, please contact Allison Galloup. Deadline for submissions is Friday, October 4th.
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.
It is agreed that UNG will not be responsible for any loss or damage to entrants’ work while being transported, stored, hung, exhibited, taken down or otherwise handled during the course of this exhibition. All work will be treated with respect and care.
