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.
