About Exhibitions at The Arts Center

Our public exhibitions program is our most visible and impactful program providing access to the arts 250-days per year. Exhibits in our two gallery spaces are selected by a community-based Exhibition Committee made up of professional artists and members at large. Seasonal Calls to Artists for themed shows, and annual calls to apply for the Main Gallery and Corrine Woodman Gallery schedules can be found on this page.

We encourage a diverse selection of artists to apply, including artists from historically excluded communities including (but not limited to): artists from rural communities, emerging artists, artists from communities of color, LGBTQ+, artists who are self-taught, and artists new to creating artwork. We welcome artists regardless of citizenship status, race/ethnicity, familial status, gender identity or expression, religious observance, sex, sexual orientation, and sources or level of income. 

For more information contact Curator Hester Coucke.

For information on volunteer Exhibition Committee participation, please contact Community Engagement Coordinator, Jen Bouton.
