SPONSOR COSO19 

VAE Raleigh was founded in 1980 by and for artists in order to be an inclusive and accessible space that uses art to bring the community together. The organization has spent the past 39 years using its resources to create greater access to the cultural arts through exhibitions, educational programming, and by providing funding directly to artists.

Contemporary South is one of VAE’s longest running and most popular recurring projects. This annual exhibition and suite of programming surveys the contemporary art communities in the 11 states that comprise the regional south. Each year the exhibition showcases contemporary works by a diverse group of artists in order to track trends in technical skill, materials, and artistic conceptual thinking. VAE brings this cross section of southern art to Raleigh as our contribution to the city’s goal of being “The Arts Capital of the South. This year’s exhibit was juried by Rachel Reese, Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art at the Telfair Museums in Savannah, Georgia.

The COSO19 call for art had the largest response of any call for art in VAE’s 39-year history. As the organization’s profile as an equitable, high-quality, and conscientious space for contemporary art continues to rise, Contemporary South only increases in importance as a project for bringing out entire arts community together to discuss our challenges, celebrate our successes, and make new connections for a stronger future.
