Call for Artists! Truth to Power 6

We hope you will consider submitting work to our upcoming annual exhibit Truth to Power 6: Communicating Messages of Social Justice Through Visual Art (six years in a row!). We are so pleased that Sarah Schroth, Director of Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, will be the juror for this exhibit.

“Truth to Power” is an annual community juried show focusing on matters of social justice. The title, derived from a 1955 Quaker pamphlet, “Speak Truth to Power” illustrates a commitment to voicing our diverse truths to the systems and individuals shaping the society in which we live.

The exhibit is intentionally broad in scope so that each artist may address issues of personal, local, national, and/or international importance.  The exhibit is open to all North Carolina artists working in 2D and 3D media. Each artist may submit up to two entries for consideration.


Entry deadline*…………………………….…. July 8, 2018
