ARTIST OPPORTUNITIES

Most of our exhibitions feature the work of local artists. People like you! We have several different ways your work can be featured in the Center for the Arts

 

We have two annual competitions, one for fine art and one for photography as well as several open-call exhibitions every year. We also offer opportunities for you to submit your art for a solo show.

If you want to sell your art in our onsite store, you must be a member. All other opportunities are open to members and non-members alike. We look forward to hearing from you!
