For Alumni

The Galleries wish to include alumni in our exhibition programming. We offer regular opportunities for alumni to exhibit in solo or group exhibitions 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 Gallery. 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.
