The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is accepting applications from visual artists and artist groups to exhibit original works at the North Charleston City Gallery and The Meeting Place for slots from July 2014 through June 2015. Selections are made by a Review Panel appointed by the department. Applications are available for download from the Applications and Registration Forms section at http://bit.luy/culturalarts. Submissions must be received or postmarked by November 30, 2013, in order to be considered.
The North Charleston City Gallery, located in the common areas of the Charleston Area Convention Center Complex, offers great exposure for artists seeking to reach thousands of local patrons and out-of-state visitors. This exhibition opportunity is limited to visual artists and artist groups creating two dimensional works. Exhibits are rotated on a monthly basis and may feature two or more artists concurrently. The gallery desk is managed by a Cultural Arts staff member on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays for the express purpose of promoting the exhibit and the sale of artwork, prints, note cards, and gift items.
The Meeting Place, located at 1077 East Montague Avenue in the Olde Village area of North Charleston, provides a more informal public exhibition opportunity for visual and fine craft artists creating both two dimensional and three dimensional works. Pieces are installed in the building’s display windows, which offer 24 hour visibility. Exhibits are rotated on a monthly and bi-monthly basis and may feature two or more artists concurrently.
