The exhibition represents the many courses of study offered by the Department of Visual Arts with entries submitted in various categories including photography, web design, graphic design, sculpture, printmaking, painting, drawing, and design & color. According to Shane Howell, Chair of the Department of Visual Arts, "26 Awards encourages our students and provides them a professional venue to celebrate their talents. The exhibit also offers the public the opportunity to enjoy the best of the best from Greenville Technical College's Department of Visual Arts."
