The Durham Arts Council showcases up to 12 solo and/or group exhibitions each year in 2 onsite galleries and at the Durham Convention Center. Typically, over 125 artists are exhibited annually. Only 2-dimensional works that can be hung on the gallery walls will be considered because our galleries also serve as main entries to the building and special event and reception spaces. Please use this form to propose a solo or group exhibit for consideration for an opening we have in our exhibition schedule for July 14th- September 1st, 2024 in the Semans Gallery, see layout here. The exhibit will be installed the week of July 8 (specific dates to be determined) and deinstalled the week of September 2 (specific dates to be determined). Exhibit openings will coordinate with Third Friday Durham on July 19 and August 16.
The Durham Arts Council strives to feature artists that represent the full range of creativity and diversity of Durham in our exhibition program and encourages BIPOC artists and arts collectives to propose solo or group exhibits.
