And if The Carrack Modern Art has anything to do with it, the Bull City’s local artists will be known for their contribution to the city’s creative vibe as well. Located among the historic buildings of downtown Durham, The Carrack provides an open space for local artists to transform with their masterful media. The gallery features a new show every two weeks so there is always plenty of variety and many examples of the amazing art in Durham.

The Carrack represents a unique model of art galleries, one that is run without commission from the artists. Therefore it relies greatly on community support and its success thus far has demonstrated that Durham residents and visitors believe there is great value in providing space for artists to share their art in Durham. Check out the schedule of upcoming events (including a Community Show where all local artists are welcome to contribute one piece to the exhibit) to see if something piques your interest!
