A Mainstay, Reimagined

The Cameron Gallery is our in-house art gallery dedicated to showcasing local artists who are using reclaimed materials in their work.

Established in 2003, The Scrap Exchange’s re-imagined art gallery continues to be a mainstay of the organization. The Cameron Gallery, located in the front of house of the main building, is named in honor of Dan Cameron and the Dan Cameron Family Foundation.

The Artist’s Marketplace

The Cameron Gallery now has a long-awaited Artist’s Marketplace, a boutique to showcase pieces from local artist on consignment! We are truly honored and excited to be able to offer support to our local artistic community.

Gallery Openings and Shows

Gallery openings feature complimentary beverages and snacks and free art-making in the Make-N-Take room. Openings are held on the third Saturday of the month, from 4:00-7:00 p.m., as not to conflict with Downtown Durham’s Third Friday cultural activities.
