Eligibility Deadline Submissions

Sertoma Arts Center is seeking submissions for the 2024 Gallery Program.

Designed to serve as one of the City of Raleigh’s community exhibition spaces, Sertoma Arts Center’s Gallery Program has introduced hundreds of artists to area residents and visitors.

Our Gallery Program showcases a broad spectrum of visual arts, featuring works by Sertoma Arts Center students and staff along with local, regional, and internationally acclaimed artists. With the goal of providing a meaningful educational experience for people of all ages and backgrounds, our exhibits inspire, enlighten and enhance the cultural environment of our community. We provide artists with exhibition opportunities and space to engage with the community without collection commission on sales. The galleries are free, open to the public, and are a valued component of the community arts education experience.

Artists working in any medium are encouraged to apply. This could include works in progress, hybridized practices, collaborative projects, book and print arts, ceramics, drawing and painting, fibers, glass, and metal arts.


Persons 18+ years of age, residing in the City of Raleigh, who participate or make art at Sertoma Arts Center are prioritized. However, artists working across the region are encouraged to apply. We define “all artists” to include the range of human differences (race and ethnicity, gender identity, age, socio-economic and housing status, religion, political affiliation, physical and mental ability) and the broadest definition of an arts professional. All artists are welcome to apply.
