Opportunities For Artists


For Alumni

The Galleries wish to include alumni in our exhibition programming. We offer regular opportunities for alumni to exhibit in a solo exhibition in the Oak Room Gallery. To be considered, you must be active in your local art community, have created a high-caliber body of work separate from the work you created at UNC, be willing to give a gallery talk, and have graduated five years ago or longer.

For Community

The Galleries welcome artist proposals for the Oak Room and Arts Annex Gallery spaces. Before you submit materials, look around our website and see what we do. The UNC Galleries are constantly evolving, but our general programming sensibilities are innovative, contemporary, and non-commercial.


To Submit

To submit your artwork for review, please send an email with the following:

  • A current artist/curatorial statement and bio.
  • 6-8 high resolution images of proposed work(s) to be on view.
  • Should the work be site specific or not yet made, a detailed proposal/sketch must be submitted.
  • A didactic text (350 words max) describing the exhibiton's central theme or concept
  • Preferred month to exhibit (please inculde a second choice as well) 

UNC Galleries

The Galleries review submissions on an ongoing basis; there is no submission deadline. Please, no phone inquiries. We accept PDF digital submissions only. Hard copy submissions will not be returned.
