Submit Your Artwork

The Mission of SouthEnd ARTS is to create equity art exhibitions for Charlotte’s artists, build cultural bridges, empower artists and their communities in Historic South End. For you to be successful we require participating artists to partner with us in promoting the show as well as be present during both evenings to sell your art and to interACT with your guests. When artists use their social media accounts, SouthEnd ARTS marketing, and their own personal mailing lists to get guests to our shows, you are not only getting exposure for your own work but also connecting your audience with the larger community that SEA has organically grown.

SouthEnd ARTS is a North Carolina Not-For-Profit Corporation. Please read carefully before submitting:

•Free to submit. SouthEnd ARTS charges you a 2-day entry fee of $35, payable within 24 HOURS of invitation. We accept credit cards through Venmo. Your artist’s profile will be posted in the order of receipt of your payment.

•When your work or new commission sells due to SouthEnd ARTS promotion of you and your work, SEA requires you donate a 20% commission to support the next exhibition of artists. Previous sales supported you, as you will offer opportunity to future local artists. This keeps fees affordable, as they were for you.

•By submitting your artwork, you give SouthEnd ARTS permission to exhibit your work(s) of art on all SouthEnd ARTS social media accounts and within the space of the Charlotte Trolley Powerhouse Studio exhibition space.

•Submit a maximum of three (3) cropped, high quality and high resolution .JPG images of your original artwork. No copies, no giclees, no tutorial paintings or paint class paintings. Edition Number of any photograph, etching, print, lithograph, etc. is required. All work must be for sale.

•Please take care in filling out the artist statement and bio as this is how we will market your work. Give us plenty to work with.

•We do not exhibit three-dimensional pieces at this time

•If your work is accepted, we require that you post our show graphics on social media at least 5 times prior to the exhibition with SouthEnd ARTS logos, market yourself on your sites that we can like and share, promote the event and invite guests to visit.
