In keeping with its guiding principals and practices, the Cultural Center invites submissions from both emerging and established artists and from those with special needs and challenges. With the exception of its Annual Members’ Exhibition in January, the exhibits it hosts are open to all.

The Center typically issues three or four calls for art submissions each year (though it hosts approximately 80 other exhibits through rentals and invitationals). Open calls are usually based on a theme of wide appeal. Most are juried by the directors. Submission fees, which help to defray expenses, are very reasonable. In some cases, they are waived.



The Cultural Center of Cape Cod invites photographers to explore their relationship with nature, as well as our collective human impact on the natural world. No matter the season or the landscape, all genres are welcome: urban, natural, industrial, abstract. From flowers, trees, birds and bees, a quiet landscape speaks volumes. Nature never disappoints. The human influence on nature has also left its mark. What is our responsibility to others, to our future, and to nature itself?


Show us NOTHING IN NATURE CLASHES through your perspective. Any and all methods of capture and process are welcome.


This call is open to all photographers worldwide, both amateur and professional.

For this exhibit, we seek artwork that goes beneath the surface to reveal aspects of the subject that usually remains hidden.


HUMANITY as an exploration of what we recognize as human emotions, human endeavors, and human gestures. Through symbolism, personal stories, and metaphors humanity is ultimately an exploration of self.


Show us HUMANITY through your personal perspective.


Open to ALL fine art mediums (oil, acrylic, watermedia, pastel, drawing, printmaking, mixed media, photography, sculpture, fiber, wood, digital art) except video.
