About The NC Artists Exhibition 

From a small exhibition in 1964, the North Carolina Artists Exhibition has evolved to be the largest annual all media juried exhibition in NC. It offers artists an opportunity to present their work and be juried by a renowned art professional. The Exhibition space at the Contemporary Art Museum located in downtown Raleigh,  enhances viewing opportunities and purchase of the artists' works by the public through open artist talks, opening and closing receptions, and First Friday Gallery walks.
