“The Community Art Show” is a non-juried, multi-discipline exhibition for participating Artstock artists, IRC artists and all community fine artists.
Call to Artist Guidelines: Artwork must be appropriate for a diverse public audience; art must be ready to hang; artist must supply contact information and wall label for their artwork; one piece per artist; artwork may be no larger than 3’ x 4’ or heavier than 25lbs; artist must supply hanging supplies or pedestal.

“The Community Art Show” gives artists from the IRC an opportunity to install and show their artwork along with established Greensboro artists, teaching them the basics of artwork exhibition and giving them pride in their work. As one IRC artist said, “I always had art in me, but I didn’t take myself seriously as an artist until other people started to.” This art show gives public awareness to the homeless within our community and allows for interactivity with them within a common, but different way.
