Contemporary South

The South is a hub for creativity. Raleigh is doing its part to lead this charge: The City of Raleigh has adopted the Raleigh Arts Plan, a ten-year master plan to strengthen arts and culture for all. 

To do our part, VAE showcases some of the most ambitious and timely works by artists from across the region in our annual exhibition, Contemporary South. The purpose of the exhibition is to gather a survey of what artists in the Regional South are currently creating. Since 2012 this exhibition has grown and expanded to become one of VAE's most popular exhibitions.
