The Cameron Gallery, located inside The Scrap Exchange creative arts reuse center, is seeking exhibition proposals for the 2020. The Cameron Gallery is dedicated to showcasing artists who highlight reclaimed materials in their work. Cameron Gallery shows change monthly, and openings are scheduled on the third Friday of each month, in conjunction with Durham’s Third Friday gallery walk.
Exhibition Proposal Requirements:
Please send the following information and documents to the Cameron Gallery Coordinator, via firstname.lastname@example.org:
- A brief description of the proposed exhibition
- Artist statement for each participating artist
- Artist biography for each participating artist
- Brief description of how the works incorporate creative reuse, reclaimed materials, found objects or otherwise relate to the Scrap Exchange’s mission – “To promote creativity, environmental awareness, and community through reuse”
- 3-5 images of creative work
- Document listing the title, artist, date, and medium of images submitted
Please send images in .JPG or .GIF format and send documents in Microsoft Word or other comparable text program.
Please note: The Cameron Gallery hosts 12 shows each year that are an even distribution of group shows, art installations, open-call community shows, and solo exhibitions. Please consider the diversity of our calendar year when developing your exhibition proposal. Artists are encouraged to submit proposals for group shows and art installations as only a handful of solo exhibitions are presented each year.
All exhibition proposals are reviewed by the gallery committee, that oversees the Cameron Gallery. For more information about the Cameron Gallery or artist opportunities at The Scrap Exchange, please contact Laura Nicholson, Cameron Gallery Coordinator, at (919) 682 2751.
