Screening panels change annually and consist of art professionals from the area. Exhibits selected through this Call for Artists will take place between July 2017 and July 2018. Selected artists will generally receive one entire gallery for a solo exhibition. Artists from all geographic locations are eligible to apply, however artists are responsible for transporting their work to the Durham Arts Council and installing it.

 For Baton Rouge, 2016 has proven to be a very difficult year. We have had shootings which have emphasized the racial tensions that mark out times. We have had record breaking floods that left people homeless or in tenuous situations, without their possessions or certainty of the future of their homes. On top of that, we are living through an election season that is causing tension in our town, state and country.

Artists through the ages have used their media to offer both veiled and overt social commentary. We are giving visual artists an opportunity to show how they are responding to the events of 2016. This is an opportunity to provide a forum for thought-provoking and insightful work.

About the Art Walk
Nestled in the heart of the Valley, Yountville is the culinary capital of the Napa Valley. The town’s one-mile main street features world-renowned restaurants, a dozen tasting rooms and hotels, all within walking distance of each other, as well as shopping, galleries and public art.

The Yountville Art Walk program, presented by Yountville Arts, is designed to take advantage of the Town’s pedestrian-friendly atmosphere and existing level of public outdoor art to promote the enjoyment of public art by inviting artists to exhibit their work on a temporary loan basis. To date, the Art Walk has over 30 sculptures. Artists who have participated in the Art Walk have sold twelve pieces to visitors in the past three years. The Yountville Art Walk offers highly visible and sought after locations for art to be displayed while reaching a variety of clients which include visitors to our high end tourist destination. Over 5,000 visitors per day walk along our streets and enjoy the sculptures.
