Friends and Family will run April 17 through May 9.

The Scrap Exchange is seeking artists of all ages, mediums and skill levels to participate in our annual Friends and Family show that celebrates the art of creative reuse happening throughout our community.

Friends and Family will open Friday, April 17 in our Cameron Gallery featuring our “friends” in the community, and our “family” here at The Scrap Exchange. This non-juried, open hanging show is a chance for artists of all ages, experience, styles and mediums in the Triangle community to participate in an art show. Friends and Family will run April 17 through May 9.

We only have a few rules for participating in this show:

Artists may submit a maximum of 3 pieces.

Artwork should be submitted ready to hang or display. Please call The Scrap Exchange at 919-688-6960 to inquire about submitting any unusually large pieces.

Artwork must incorporate 75% reworked, repurposed, reused, or reclaimed material. (We’d love to have artists use materials from The Scrap Exchange, but the materials can be reclaimed from anywhere.)

Any medium is acceptable.

Artists may explore any subject matter. However, artwork must be family friendly, as our gallery is visited daily by children and adults of all ages.

All items must be for sale. The commission split will be 60/40, with 60% of any sale going to the artist, and 40% going to The Scrap Exchange.

Artists must fill out an information label and inventory sheet for each piece of art when dropping off their pieces. Information labels and inventory sheets will be supplied to the artist when dropping off their work.

Artists can drop off their work during the following store hours prior to opening night:

Mon, April 13 from 11:00am-6:00pm

Tue, April 14 11:00am-6:00pm

Wed, April 15 11:00am-6:00pm

Friends and Family will end on Saturday, May 9. Artists should plan to pick up unsold artwork on Sunday, May 10 from 12:00-5:00pm.

The opening reception for our Friends and Family exhibit will be Friday, April 17 from 6pm-9pm. Artists are encouraged to attend. Opening night festivities are open to the public and will include refreshments, free art making and music. For more information, contact The Scrap Exchange at 919-688-6960.
