FOR ARTISTS…ABOUT ARTISTS…BY ARTISTS

SouthEnd ARTS ….  Making history by creating monthly equity art exhibition space in South End.  
SouthEnd ARTS, aka SEA, is expanding programming and outreach locations because of the immense needs of underinvested artists to show and sell their work.
SEA considers Charlotte‘s artists a vulnerable demographic, mostly disregarded when the community assesses the impact of Charlotte’s lack of upward mobility. The mission of SouthEnd ARTS is to fill that need by creating equity exhibition opportunities, buildIng cultural bridges and empowerIng artists and their communities.
SouthEnd ARTS believes in providing economic opportunity by paying our musicians, speakers, performance artists, BFA & MFA invited jurors and 4 prize-winning artists.
