The “Get Out. Go Somewhere” art exhibit is a juried exhibition organized by the East Carolina University Photography Guild. The show is open to all mediums and artists are encouraged to submit work that they have created relating to travel, exploration, or discovery as per the definitions above. So, Where have you gone lately? What did you see? Who did you meet? What did you bring back? And most importantly HOW did this influence the art that you create? The exhibit is intended for undergraduate, graduate students, and recent graduates of universities in the Southeast and mid-Atlantic region. All 2D work should be framed and ready to hang. 3D works need to be freestanding or able to be displayed on a 14”x14” pedestal. The exhibition will be held at the Mendenhall Student Center located in the center of the East Carolina University campus. The exhibit space is large, well lit, and secure. Artists are required to submit their work by e-mailing their submission to email@example.com. In addition to images, submissions should include a description of the artwork including title, date created, medium, dimensions, AND LOCATION WHERE THE ARTWORK ORIGINATED. Work that differs markedly from the approved image, or that is held to be substandard for other reasons, may be excluded from the exhibition. Mendenhall Student Center accepts no responsibility for work damaged in transit due to substandard packing or materials. All accepted work shall be insured for the duration of the show following the signature of gallery agreement.
