Bringing Art Inspiration, Information, and Education to the Clayton Community
Call for Artists to Exhibit in 2022-23 at the Clayton Center
Clayton Visual Arts, Inc. seeks artists for the 2022-23 monthly exhibit season, which begins in July at The Clayton Center in Clayton, NC. We exhibit original artwork in any 2-dimensional media.
Interested artists or artist-groups are invited to apply for a show by sending an application form, a resume, a portfolio of 4-6 images and a non-refundable application fee of $10 to the Clayton Visual Arts’ Exhibits Committee.
The images must be representative of the type of work the artist plans to exhibit.
• Each image should show a single piece of art with minimal background.
• The images should be submitted in jpg format.
• All images should have a resolution of at least 300 dpi
Email images to email@example.com
Applicants may pay the entry fee online on this website. We also accept personal checks. Please do NOT send cash. Mailing address is Clayton Visual Arts, PO Box 698, Clayton, NC 27520
All items (resume, portfolio of images, application, and fee) must reach the committee no later than 5 p.m. Friday, March 25, 2022. The non-refundable application fee of $10 must be received with the entry by the Exhibits Committee before the entry will be considered.
Selected applicants will be provided a contract detailing terms and conditions for exhibiting at the Clayton Center. A $35.00 exhibit fee ($25.00 for CVA members) is due at the time of execution of the contract. Successful applicants will be notified in early April 2022.
Exhibits usually consist of a total of 40-50 pieces and are scheduled by calendar months. (For shows of multiple artists the amount would be less, ie 2 artists 20-25 each, 3 artists 12 -15.) Shows may be multi-person shows and the number of pieces for each artist will be determined by the Exhibits Committee. The shows hang in the main lobby of The Clayton Center, 111 E. Second St., and are free and open to the public daily during business hours. Clayton Visual Arts, Inc., founded in 1999, has staged art exhibitions at The Clayton Center since 2004.
