Call for Art: Contemporary South

Call for Art: Contemporary South 2017, VAE, Raleigh, NC

Deadline – 11:59pm on December 21, 2016

The South is a hub for creativity. Raleigh is doing its part to lead this charge: The City of Raleigh recently adopted the Raleigh Arts Plan, a ten-year master plan to strengthen arts and culture for all. The newly appointed Director of the Office of Raleigh Arts has committed to “saying yes” to more creative people.

To do our part, VAE showcases some of the most ambitious and timely works by artists from across the region in our annual exhibition, Contemporary South. The purpose of the exhibition is to gather a survey of what creative people in the Regional South are currently creating. Since 2012 this exhibition has grown and expanded to become one of VAE’s most well-received exhibitions. We invite you to help us make COSO17 the best iteration yet!
