Art  Display

  • Exhibition space for the artists will be equivalent portions of the art annex. Please plan for approximately 6’ of linear space to hang your art.  The location of your space within the annex will be predetermined before the show.  3D artists will also have pre-set space allowances.    3D and Jewelry artists, please plan for   32” x 17” table top space.
  • Display space will be either wall space using the RC wall system, table top space, hanging grid, or a display case.
  • Artists are responsible for the care and transportation of their own work. The RC will not store art. 
  • There will be an area available for promotional material. You may bring business cards and post cards for display.  Please do not bring anything bigger than a 8.5” x 5.5”. 


This showcase is only open to current artists of the WFGA. Art to exhibit:  This is a public building and the Wake Forest Arts, WFGA and/ or Renaissance Centre has the right to ask that any images that could be considered not appropriate to be removed.  Please bring only original artwork.  Artwork must be professionally finished and ready to display.  For example ( paintings with wire backs either framed or with painted edges). 

Blank WFGA art tags will be provided at the set up for labeling.

Art  Sales:  The Renaissance Centre is hosting this show at no cost to Wake Forest Arts or the WFGA, therefore, we will not be conducting sales inside the building during the show hours.  However, all artists are encouraged to be in attendance, to greet potential clients, as well as have art clearly marked with contact information.  The purpose of the show is to take time to speak to the public and answer any questions about your art or your process.  Arrangements for sales off-property and client follow up are encouraged. 

Show attendance:

Since this is an opportunity to reach out to the public, artists are expected to be in attendance.    The day should be busy since the Wake Forest Food Truck Rodeo will be 12pm -4pm in the adjacent parking lot.  There hopefully will be a lot of foot traffic.  Please be aware that on Sunday, parking in front of the building will be very limited, however, there is ample parking across the street and along the block


Please consider volunteering.  These shows are made better by the people involved.

Volunteer to help make this a great show!
