Calling all Cary Visual Artists

 Yayoi by Sandra Bruce


The Cary Visual Artist Directory is intended to be a centralized place to find visual artists in Cary for those researching local artists, wishing to engage their services, and/or see more about the artist and their artwork. 

This directory will be a pilot, and if after evaluation of the site, services, and feedback from both artists and consumers of the artist’s information, we envision it could be a resource for finding visual artists living and working in our community in order to promote the arts in the Cary community.
