    American Woman at Slocumb Galleries, ETSU. Johnson City, TN

    The ETSU Department of Art & Design and Slocumb Galleries in partnership with the Honors College, School of Continuing Studies & Academic Outreach, Women’s Studies Program, Women’s Resource Center and the Student Government Association (SGA) B.U.C. Funds announced the winners for ‘American / Woman’ during the 31st Annual Positive/Negative National Juried Art Exhibition awarding reception and juror’s lecture last February 18th, at the Slocumb Galleries. The exhibition is extended until March 17that the Slocumb Galleries.

    ‘American / Woman’ is a two-part exhibition juried by Al Miner, this year’s juror for the 31st Annual Positive/Negative. After looking through 218 artists’ submissions nationwide, Miner developed two curatorial directions that he entitled 'American / Woman’. He described his selections as featuring works by contemporary artists that "deal with location/place/landscape in the U.S. and the others take women/girls/femininity/stereotypes about women as their subject.” The exhibitions offered diverse and nuanced images, as he stated, “the American gallery brings together works that speak to the evolving political, social, and physical terrain of our country.  The Woman gallery illustrates that in our time, shifting definitions of and expectations for women are as compelling to artists as the female form has always been.”  

    Juried by Al Miner, Assistant Curator at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, Massachusetts.
