Pullen Arts Center 2021 Gallery Program

The Pullen Arts Center Gallery Program showcases a broad spectrum of visual arts in two distinct gallery spaces. Through exhibitions in both gallery spaces, we seek to strike a balance between works by professional local, regional and national/internationally acclaimed artists (including artists who participate, make or teach at Pullen Arts Center) and works by emerging local artists (including artists who participate or make at Pullen Arts Center). With the goals of providing artists with meaningful opportunities to gain experience exhibiting and to see the work of other artists; our Galleries are an important component of the community arts education experience at Pullen.
