2021 RFAS NC Artists Exhibition:
A Virtual Retrospective -
New Work by 2018-2020 Juried Artists
About the NC Artists Exhibition
From a small exhibition in 1964, RFAS North Carolina Artists Exhibition has evolved to become the largest annual all media juried exhibition in the state. It offers artists an opportunity to present their works before a renowned art professional.
In past years, a total of four prizes have been awarded. The Joyce Wilkins Pope Grand Prize awards $3,000 to the first place winner. The first Betsy Sykes Award in 2020 provided $1,000 to the second place winner; with two additional Juror’s Choice Awards at $1,000 each.
Due to COVID, this year‘s exhibition is a VIRTUAL retrospective show from the past three years juried artists featuring new works. A link to our 2021 North Carolina Artists Exhibition will be available on RFAS website beginning April 17 through July 17, 2021. We encourage you to share the link on social media, as well as with family and friends! Those interested in purchasing artwork may do so by contacting the artists. All proceeds from sales go directly to the artists.
Exploring the Virtual Format
RFAS has partnered with Lingar to format our show. Lingar is a company that provides a software program and mobile phone applications serving museums and cultural institutions. Working with Lingar and using the Lingar app gives us an opportunity to produce a more interactive show.
In addition to the photo-graphic images, the Lingar program offers audio and video, which provides lay-ers of information about the artists and their work. The free Lingar mobile phone app. broadens our reach and provides easy access to the show. RFAS members, artists and art enthusiasts in Virginia, North Carolina or South Carolina can view the show via the Lingar mobile app.
