The Mission of SouthEnd ARTS is to create equity art exhibitions for Charlotte’s artists, build cultural bridges, empower artists and their communities in 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.
