Arts Submission Procedures

On an annual basis, Niagara County Community College will present an advertised open-call to collect art applications for the purpose of scheduling events for the NCCC Dolce Valvo Art Center. We look forward to working with local artists for the future exhibits that will be planned!

The gallery’s mission is to provide a community space for students to view professional artist’s work and foster continued enthusiasm for the arts. We are looking for artists of all mediums to inspire our students through their work. Individual and group shows are welcome.
