2012 Call to Artists
For National artists

The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center has opened its annual Call to Artists for the 2012 exhibition season. More than 30 solo and group shows will be selected for the six galleries in the upcoming season. Any artist living in the U.S. may apply. All media and styles are eligible.

The Carnegie will also host two special exhibitions in 2012 - Hair as Art (January 2012) and The Art of Food (March 2012). Artists interested in participating in either of these shows will need to submit a proposal or examples of their work along with their applications, outlining the food and/or hair inspired work they envision creating for the show. All artist submissions for solo and group shows will be reviewed by a panel of independent jurors and top scoring artists will be awarded shows.

Cost to apply is $20 member/$25 non-member for solo shows and $35 member/$40 non-member for group shows. There is no cost to apply for Hair as Art or The Art of Food. All entries must be postmarked by April 15, 2011. Results will be mailed by May 30, 2011.

The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center is a multidisciplinary arts venue for all ages which provides theatre events, educational programs and art exhibitions to the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati community. The Carnegie facility reflects its threefold nature: within its 17,000 square foot facility are The Carnegie Galleries, crowned by a landmark Beaux Arts dome; the magnificent, newly renovated Otto M. Budig Theatre; and the newer Eva G. Farris Education center.  The Carnegie is the largest arts venue in Northern Kentucky.  The Carnegie was established in 1972 in a former Carnegie Library which originally was constructed in 1902. The building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
