The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center is dedicated to showcasing the works of emerging and established artists in all artistic disciplines. The Carnegie is located in Covington, Kentucky, ten blocks from the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The organization was established in 1972. Each year, 30-40 group and solo shows are awarded for the five galleries consisting of over 6,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Any artist(s) living in the United States. All styles and media are eligible. Note: Any artist who has been awarded a solo show at The Carnegie must wait three years to apply again for a solo show. You may however, apply for group and theme shows during that period.

Solo Exhibition - Ten images of a consistent body of work in JPEG format provided on CD (see below for image details; CD will not be returned), $25 entry fee (Carnegie members $20 entry fee) and attached application form.

Group Exhibition (Two or more artists) - Twenty images representing all artists who will be showing in the exhibition, $40 entry fee (Carnegie members $35 entry fee), and attached application form. A one-page typed statement may be submitted to better understand the purpose or details of the show. Please use one contact person.

Art of Food - This year we are asking artists to submit proposals of art created from food or art that carries a food theme. A simple drawing and a short written
statement on the proposed creation is all that is necessary, but you may elaborate however you wish. There is no entry fee.

Hair as Art - A special exhibition that will explore Hair as an art form. Artists are asked to submit art or proposals that have hair as the main or prominent subject matter. This will be combined with some of the best hair designs on live models for the Opening Reception. Exhibition will run two weeks and there is no entry fee.

Each year three jurors are selected to independently evaluate the work submitted for solo and group shows.
