311 Gallery, 311 West Martin Street, Raleigh NC has been bringing color to Raleigh’s Warehouse District since 2007 and is now in the center of the vibrant art hub that grew up around us.

Our Main Exhibition Gallery hosts monthly shows: either a national show of juried works or the works of invited artists. In addition, 12 artist studios exhibit the works of over 30 resident artists. The 311 Gallery Gift Shop offers smaller works by resident and invited artists, including ceramic, glass and wood artists, as well as painters in a variety of media.

311 Gallery is centrally located 3-4 blocks from the Raleigh Convention Center and major downtown hotels. Our consistent advertising in the Art Guide, Raleigh Convention & Visitors Bureau information, etc., and our reputation for presenting a wide variety of styles bring us visitors and purchasing patrons from throughout the Southeast, including Charleston, Atlanta, Charlotte, and Richmond, and indeed from across the North and South America.

The two goals of our juried shows are to introduce Mid-Atlantic art lovers to the diversity of work produced by contemporary artists and to inspire both artists and art lovers to strengthen our appreciation of all things art.

Our jurors are working and exhibiting artists. They understand the challenges facing artists while creating their works, and they understand what makes a work of art sing.

Linda K. Eddins. Although best known for her oil paintings, Linda also speaks fluent acrylic, pastel, and watercolor. She enjoys traveling the world and translating what she sees as it is—or as it should be.

Jim Hallenbeck. Jim paints landscapes, cityscapes, and the people that inhabit them. Although painting realistically, he accentuates with bright colors to trigger emotion or spark a memory in the viewer.

Lori White. Lori documents our quiet moments and our beautiful, fragile planet. In her quiet and unassuming oil paintings, she captures restful locations and points in time when all is calm and nothing is needed or unessential.

Character of accepted artwork

If works are not adequately prepared for display, they will be withdrawn from the show.

REMEMBER: ONLY TWO WORKS OF ART MAY BE ENTERED. 311 Gallery reserves the rights to (1) refuse any entry, (2) limit the number of accepted works per artist, and (3) withdraw any work from the exhibition at its discretion. REMINDER: 311 Gallery is a general audience/family-friendly venue and accepted art must be appropriate for that audience.

{C}·        Artists will receive 65% on sales by 311 Gallery of artwork in this show.

{C}·        311 Gallery will retain a 35% commission and will pay the sales tax.

Delivery of accepted artwork

Accepted artwork must be delivered to 311 Gallery between 11:30 am and 4:00 pm on September 22, 2017. NOTE: Items to be shipped to 311 Gallery must be scheduled to arrive on these dates.

Artwork to be shipped back must arrive in reusable packing and containers. 311 Gallery will re-pack each piece in its original packing for return. Art must be removable without destruction of return packing materials so that we can easily repack it in the original packing and container. Put your name on your box, so we know which box goes with what artwork! NOTE: if you do not have suitable art shipping containers, FEDEX and UPS have relatively inexpensive shipping boxes that protect 2-D art during shipping and can be reused for multiple shipments. More durable (and expensive) art shipping boxes with even more protection are available from many art supply houses, as well as Uline and other packaging suppliers. The latter may be appropriate if you ship items of the same size often.

DO NOT PACK ART IN FOAM PEANUTS; such packages will be returned unopened. Experience unfortunately shows that (1) foam peanuts do not adequately protect art from shifting, (2) art cannot be removed without scattering peanuts and requiring cleanup, (3) the art itself is in jeopardy due to the static cling adhering parts of peanuts to objects in the area (we have seen photographs rejected for awards because of specks on the photograph that were later determined to be specks from foam peanuts and we have seen art damaged by peanut abrasion), and (4) the art is practically impossible to return into the packaging in a secure manner.

Pickup of unsold artwork

At the conclusion of the show, unsold artwork may be picked up on Saturday, November 25, 2017 from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm. Artists who wish to have their artwork shipped back to them must provide prepaid return shipping labels, including desired insurance.

Artists must arrange return shipping with their local UPS/FedEx/USPS or other shipping office at the close of the exhibition. Shipping insurance each way is the responsibility of the artist. 311 Gallery will not accept monies for shipping and is not responsible for works lost, stolen, or damaged once picked up by the shipper.

Check your local shipper for prepaid return labels, call tag systems, and printable internet shipping labels.

Artists may include the return label with the shipment of the work to 311 Gallery or provide the gallery with a prepaid label at the close of the exhibition. 

Due to the lack of available storage, unsold artwork(s) not picked up by the deadline become the property of 311 Gallery, unless prior arrangements have been made. We appreciate your understanding of the need for timely pickup of unsold works.


REMEMBER: ONLY TWO WORKS OF ART MAY BE ENTERED. Questions should be directed to or Juried Show 4, 311 Gallery, 311 West Martin Street, Raleigh, NC 27601
