2020 Juried Art

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.

Nat Trotman, Curator of Performance and Media at the Guggenheim R. Solomon Museum in New York, has taken The North Carolina Annual Artists Exhibition to a new level. Not only will the show be educational, it will bring a greater appreciation to cutting edge art being created in our community and state.

The art scene in North Carolina continues to evolve, with artists submissions including performance art, video, film, sound and other media. This is a unique opportunity to connect with art that IS happening in North Carolina. 

Commenting on this year’s Exhibition, Mr. Trotman notes: “As I reviewed the record number of works—more than 1500 in all!—submitted this year, I was struck by the sense of urgency in the art being made in North Carolina today. My selection for the Exhibition brings together a diverse, multigenerational group of nearly sixty artists, each of whom is committed to speaking truth to the era in which we live. Their works are provocative, powerful, and profound. And they are unified in their desire to offer moments of grace, beauty, and critique in the face of these difficult times. I am honored to be able to engage with such a rich artistic community.”

Come. See. Listen. Learn. Discover. Acquire. Experience what inspires these artists. Join us at the community opening and art sales from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on March 8 at CAM Raleigh.  Raleigh Fine Arts Society 2020 North Carolina Annual Artists Exhibition runs through June 14. Visit for public viewing hours.
