 NC Artists Exhibition


2019 North Carolina Artists Exhibition 

The Exhibition is the the largest annual all media juried exhibition in NC. It has been in place for over 40 years and continues to celebrate the best of NC Creativity.

A New Home for the Artists Exhibition

Join us in celebrating the North Carolina Exhibition’s move to the Contemporary Art Museum (CAM) in Raleigh.  CAM is a non-collecting contemporary art museum that provides an environment for transformation through educational programs, cultural experiences, and bold non-traditional exhibitions by living artists. 

CAM is located in the heart of Raleigh’s developing Warehouse District recently described by USA Today as one of the" best art hoods in the nation.”  Every month, the Warehouse District is a major draw for Raleigh’s First Friday gallery walks, and CAM always hosts thousands of visitors for these events.   

The Artists Exhibition has evolved over the years, each year building on what has come before.  With the move to CAM we expect this tradition to continue and we will  reach a broader audience of art lovers, art critics and art connoisseurs.
