Propose An Exhibit
If you wish to propose an exhibit other than a solo show (for example; a show that includes the work of several artists, a show based on a theme, a group or association show), you will need to fill out an alternate application. You will find the special proposal application link here when it is open.
Visual artist registration for the Durham Art Walk Holiday Market opens annually in August. ALL ARTISTS who wish to participate in this non-juried event must apply online via the application link, coming soon.
Visual Artist Applications open in January and close in May. Artists are notified in June. This is a juried show. Returning artists are juried every three years.
