Upcoming Exhibitions

The Reflections exhibit at the Delta Arts Center opens the 2017-2018 exhibition season. The three exhibits to be held in the Simona Atkins Allen gallery during this year will be focused on the following theme: the Legacy of the Creative Spirits. Intimate exhibitions in the People’s Gallery at the Delta Arts Center will also allow the visitor the opportunity to reflect further upon this theme.


Dear Friends,

As you know, for many years the Delta Arts Center has been committed to showcasing the works of local and regional artists. In addition to our biannual juried invitational exhibitions we have promoted the work of other North Carolina artists in solo and small group shows. We are always looking out for new and innovative artists to show in our gallery.

To that end, we are pleased to announce a call for artists for the “Invitational 2018@ Delta Arts” juried exhibition. All exhibits during the 2017-18 year at the Delta Arts Center will focus on the theme of “The Legacy of the Creative Spirits,” including the Invitational. We are seeking works of art that honor our heroes and mentors, those who guide and inspire us. This theme will unite all exhibits (in both galleries) throughout the year, highlighted by the exhibition “Conscience of the Human Spirit: Quilts to Honor Nelson Mandela” which will be on view in the Simona Atkins Allen Gallery November 1, 2017 – February 24, 2018. We hope that you will consider submitting a proposal for this exhibition, or sending this information to artists you know.

Artists are invited to submit proposals by January 31, 2018. Up to three digital images and an artist statement which includes an explanation of how these works fit the theme (300 words maximum) should be sent via email to attached jpeg or tiff files). All statements must clearly explain how they focus on the theme of “The Legacy of the Creative Spirits.” Please identify each image by name of artist, title of work, date, exact size, and medium in the body of the message.


  • All works must have been completed in the last three years (no earlier than 2015) and be for sale
  • All types of two-dimensional and three-dimensional media are acceptable, as long as exact dimensions are specified
  • All artwork must be delivered to the Delta Arts Center between February 22 and 24 during opening hours


Works of art will be selected for an exhibition to be held March 1 – June 30, 2018. All selected works must be for sale; a 30% commission on each sale will benefit the Delta Arts Center. Accepted artists will be notified by February 1, 2018. Please contact us via email at with any questions, or to submit a proposal which incudes an artist statement with description of the works fit the assigned theme (max. 300 words), and digital images of artwork (up to three pieces).  Again, the deadline is January 31, 2018. No late submissions will be considered. All images submitted may be used for publicity.
