About the Triangle Community Artists Gallery partnership:
The Durham Art Guild and Triangle Community Foundation are excited to continue a partnership that brings local, curated art to the Foundation’s offices located on the 2nd floor of The Frontier at Research Triangle Park. The Triangle Community Artists Gallery, housed within the Foundation’s office space, will host juried artwork from local artists for periods of six months at a time using art to spark dialogue and civic engagement. This region has a rich and vibrant arts community and we believe that this partnership is an opportunity to showcase and connect local artists with our community in a meaningful way.
