Artspace inspires positive community impact through art.


Art is celebrated and valued as an essential part of our vibrant and healthy community.

Below are all current opportunities open for submissions.

We are still accepting applications for FRESH! As we adapt to the new reality we find ourselves in, we are moving this to an online exhibition and are waiving the entry fee. All artwork submitted will be presented in a digital gallery and all artwork will be for sale. 

To preserve the spirit of FRESH, we will have several jurors pick their selections and we will present separate online galleries for each juried show. Both juried and non-juried galleries will be on view May 1 - June 27.

FRESH is an exhibition of new works by North Carolina artists. The concept of the show is to demystify the process about what goes into the making of an exhibition and to provide all NC artists an opportunity to show their work.

FRESH is also a fundraising exhibition with 70% of the proceeds from sales of artwork going directly in the pockets of artists and 30% going to the Artspace Inspiration Fund. 

The exhibition will be juried by Alexys Taylor, former curator of The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture. We will be adding additional jurors as they are confirmed.
