Kannapolis Arts to Honor Local Artists!

Kannapolis Arts has been invited to host an Art Showcase at the Salisbury Business Center in Downtown Salisbury!

The mission of the Salisbury Business Center is to empower professionals by providing outstanding business-oriented services utilizing their convenient downtown location, extensive resources, knowledgeable staff, and state-of-the-art facilities.  Hundreds of people from across the U.S. visit the Salisbury Business Center a year for training, seminars, meetings, community events, or client visits.

Showcasing artists from the area is mutually beneficial to the artists and the Salisbury Business Center.  Current artists being showcased can be viewed on their website:

In addition to the showcase, the Salisbury Business Center creates brochures marketing the current artworks displayed. These brochures are made available to visitors and persons interested in purchasing artwork. Press releases are sent to area media outlets, and social media is utilized for publicity of current artworks as well.

Because of their dedication to small businesses, local artists and community enrichment, Kannapolis Arts is THRILLED to be pairing up with the Salisbury Business Center to create an art display that will showcase our resident artists, as well as, artists who have been involved in the Kaleidoscope Cultural Arts festival that we hold 5 times each year in Downtown Kannapolis, NC.

Area artists are invited to represent Kannapolis Arts by submitting their 2-Dimensional artworks for a special 3 month art installation inside of the Salisbury Business Center.  For more information regarding this showcase and how you can be involved, please email Kannapolis Arts Project Leader Bailey Wingler (of Just Bailey Designs) at justbaileydesigns@gmail.com or by filling out the contact form below.
