Call for Artists and Open Hanging Schedule
Friends and Family 20/20 Show

Hanging Dates: June 12 - June 16
Exhibit Dates: June 17 – July 9

Our annual Friends and Family open-hanging exhibit is almost here and we need YOU to participate. We are adding a 20th anniversary twist to this popular show. All artwork will be for sale for $20 per item, to help us celebrate 20 years as a leading creative reuse center!

Here’s where you come in. This show is open to anyone in our community! Make something cool out of reclaimed materials that you will be happy to price at $20. In fact, make several pieces! Use any medium and any subject matter(family friendly please). The only requirement is that you use reclaimed, reused or repurposed materials in your work. This show will include our traditional 60/40 split- the artist receives 60% of any sale and the Scrap Exchange receives 40%. Submit as many pieces as you like, we want to completely fill the gallery with art!

You can come in and hang the work yourself June 12th-16th anytime during regular store hours. These hours are as follows:

Sun June 12: 12pm-5pm
Mon June 13: 11am-5pm
Tue June 14: 11am-5pm
Wed June 15: 11am-5pm
Thu June 16: 11am-6pm

The show will open Friday June 17th with a big 20th birthday party for the Scrap Exchange from 6-9 pm. The reception and birthday party will include refreshments, live music by the Durham Ukulele Orchestra, free admission to Open Studio to make party hats, and more!

So, it’s time to get busy, finish up that art and bring it to our new location to hang! The Friends and Family 20/20 Show will run from June 17 through July 9.

The Scrap Exchange has moved and is now located at 923 Franklin St in Durham, behind the Golden Belt complex. The main entrance is located at Bay 2.

The Green Gallery is open daily during regular retail store hours. Green Gallery openings at The Scrap Exchange are sponsored by PBR and held in conjunction with Third Friday Durham festivities. Thank you PBR for your support of the arts!
