Artist Opportunities

It is time to start planning the solo show calendar at Wake Med North for 2022!

We are very appreciative of the display space at the Wake Med North gallery wall and are looking forward to continuing to show high quality original works.

The hospital administration and staff continue to support our displays even throughout the pandemic.

Please review the general info for exhibiting at this venue.

If you are interested in having a show in 2022, contact with your top 3 preferred months to show.

All efforts are made to accomodate artist choices, however, preference will be given to artists who have not shown at Wake Med North. All artists must be registered with the WFGA. Installation and take down days are coordinated between the two artists and Delphine is there to assist in curating the new works. Exhibits are approximate one month in duration. If you have not seen the display space at the hospital, please take a moment to go through our facebook and instagram posts to see past artists' shows.

The Wake Forest Farmers Market is now accepting applications for their annual Holiday Market. They will hold their market on November 27, 2021 from 10:00 AM – 2:00 PM.

The application is on the first page of the Wake Forest Farmer’s Market web site:
