2019 North Carolina Artists Exhibition 

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.  We hope that by moving it to CAM this tradition will continue and we will be able to reach even more artists and art lovers.       

Meet our 2019 Juror, Chad Alligood

  We are pleased to announce the Juror for the 2019 North Carolina Artists   Exhibition,  Chad Alligood.  Mr. Alligood is an Independent curator and art historian of modern and contemporary American art having served recently as the Virginia Steele Scott Chief Curator of American Art at The Huntington in Los Angeles, Ca. Previously he was curator at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. He has spearheaded multiple exhibition projects, including State of the Art: Discovering American Art Now, which garnered Excellence in Exhibition honors from the American Alliance of Museums in 2015. His work on this Exhibition took him to nearly 1,000 artists’ studios across the country.  Alligood’s research and exhibitions have focused on American art since 1900. His areas of interest include art of the West Coast,  contemporary art, and art of the 1960s and 70s.
