Submission Guidelines


The Galleries are committed to artistic excellence, to diversity and to educating our community with visual art from across the nation. Gallery exhibitions are designed by the Visual Arts Director who 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. Exhibitions at The Galleries rotate on an eight to ten week schedule, are typically thematic in concept and combine fine art with craft. Artistic excellence is the standard.

Artist Submission Guidelines

To be considered for an exhibition in The Galleries, please email the following:

  • A current resume detailing education, grants, fellowships, awards, teaching positions, gallery affiliations, exhibitions and collections. Please include mailing address, email address, phone number and websites.
  • An artist statement related specifically to the body of work submitted, discussing the influences, research and inspiration that shape your work in terms of media, technique, and concepts.
  • 5 digital images of current work that is available to be exhibited. The images must include a correlated inventory form listing medium, size, date of creation and retail prices.

The Cabarrus Arts Council makes every effort to safeguard submitted materials but cannot be responsible for loss. Submissions are reviewed periodically. Do not bring original work to the gallery unless requested.
