North Charleston offering visual art exhibition opportunities

The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is now accepting applications from visual artists and artist groups to exhibit original works at the North Charleston City Gallery and The Meeting Place for fiscal year 2012/2013. Selections are made by a Review Panel appointed by the department. The deadline for submission of applications is Wednesday, November 30. Applications are available for download from the city's website. Contact the Cultural Arts Department at 843-740-5854 to request a print copy.

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 and fine craft artists exhibiting two dimensional works. Exhibits are rotated on a monthly basis and may feature two or more artists. The gallery desk is managed by a Cultural Arts staff member during weekend hours 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 bi-monthly basis and may feature two or more artists.
