The Galleries are committed to artistic excellence, diversity, and educating our community with visual art from around the world. The Visual Arts Director designs gallery exhibitions and selects artists for group and solo exhibitions.
Artists who wish to be considered may submit materials to the Visual Arts Director according to the guidelines below. Selection of artists is at the sole discretion of the Cabarrus Arts Council.
