CPCC Art Galleries play an important role in the region as one of only a few galleries who exhibit work by emerging and mid-career artists living and working nearby. We are proud that our exhibiting artists show creative diversity and are able to connect well with students through educational programming. We also believe in continuing the support of artists who have shown work in our exhibition spaces, which is why we extend a hearty congratulations to those who recently won 2015 Regional Artist Project Grant from the Arts and Science Council!
