North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship 2017 Award Exhibition

On view March 3 – August 5, 2018

Since 1980, the North Carolina Arts Council has worked with museums and galleries across the state to host an exhibition and produce a catalogue of visual, craft, and film/video fellowship recipients. The NCAC awards artist fellowships in the categories of visual art, craft, film/video, choreography, prose writing, poetry, play writing/screenwriting, musical composition, and songwriting, alternating disciplines on a two-year cycle. Artists receive a $10,000 fellowship to support creative development and the creation of new work. Since its inception over 600 awards have helped to nurture the state’s creative sector. The exhibition at CAM will feature seventeen artists: ten visual artists, three craft artists, two film/video artists and two choreographers selected for the 2017-18 awards.

State of the Art/Art of the State Exhibit

On view through July 12, 2018

From the mountains to the sea, this exhibition features 657 works created by contemporary artists living in, or native to, the state of NC. Artists brought a single work of art to be installed in the museum within a 24‐hour period. During this time frame, four curators from North Carolina institutions were present to greet each artist and talk about their work, providing participating artists equal opportunity to meet a significant curator in the field of contemporary art today.
