Arts Council of Fayetteville | Cumberland County spotlights community artwork with Annual Public Works Exhibit

By Staff Report, posted 1 month ago

The Arts Council of Fayetteville | Cumberland County is excited to open up its gallery walls to the community with its annual Public Works Community Art Exhibition. This exhibit is an opportunity to celebrate the full gambit of artists found in our community.

Both 2-D and 3-D works will be accepted by any artist residing in Cumberland, Hoke, Robeson, Sampson and Scotland Counties, along with Fort Liberty or Pope Army Airfield residents. Submitting one work is $15, and submitting two is $20 total. In an effort to include as many works as we can, we ask that artists don’t submit pieces larger than 4x6’. 

“It doesn’t matter if you are three or 93 years of age as this exhibit provides an opportunity for all people in  our community to publicly express themselves through their creative artwork,” said Bob Pinson, President/CEO of the Arts Council in a press release. "We are grateful to the Public Works Commission for helping to sponsor this exhibit for our community."

Artwork drop-off days will be on May 17 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and May 18, from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Artists are encouraged to register and prepay online. There will be hard copies of the registration forms for individuals who would prefer that method. 

Online registration can be done here

The opening reception will be held on May 24, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m, at the Art Center located in Downtown Fayetteville. Held on Fourth Friday, this reception is an opportunity to celebrate the artists exhibiting work in the gallery. Light refreshments will be available.

The exhibition will be on display until July 20. Admission is free and open to the public.
