The AAAC Point of View Curator program offers Buncombe County artists the opportunity to curate exhibits within the Thom Robinson & Ray Griffin Exhibition Space. We invite artists to submit proposals for exhibitions that incorporate collaborations with other local artists. Exhibits are developed by a collection of creative professionals acting as curators. Selections are based upon artistic merit and involvement within our community. The curator designs a thematic approach, invite artists to exhibit their work and coordinate the exhibition installation. This approach has enabled the AAAC to encourage collaborations within the scope of traditional gallery practice. This program also allows us the opportunity to help develop artists as curators. We see our exhibition space as a showcase for the talent of Buncombe County and strive to expose the community to the wealth of artistic excellence that exists in our area.

Point of View proposals are accepted on a rolling basis and are evaluated by the AAAC Exhibitions Committee based on the following annual timeline:

Submissions accepted through April 15

Submission review completed by April 28

Point of View Curators are announced by May 1

The exhibitions calendar runs on a fiscal year cycle starting July 1 through June 30.

We are not currently accepting proposals for exhibitions as our exhibition calendar is booked through August 2018. If you are interested in curating a Point of View exhibition, please familiarize yourself with our Curator Contract and keep an eye out for our next call for proposals, likely early 2018.
