'Community Chords' is a juried group exhibition inspired by the work of Freeman Vines, a NC–based artist, luthier, and one-time blues musician who makes contemporary art sculptures and guitars. The open call for artist submissions is up through June 20, learn more HERE.

SECCA's Community Gallery connects community-based organizations with working artists. SECCA is hosting the traveling exhibition Hanging Tree Guitars in its Main Gallery from June 10 – September 12, 2021. Community Chords will raise awareness and funds for Music Maker Relief Foundation, organizers of the Hanging Tree Guitars exhibition.

The Music Maker Relief Foundation, a 501c3 non-profit, was founded to preserve the musical traditions of the South by directly supporting the musicians who make it, ensuring their voices will not be silenced by poverty and time. Music Maker will give future generations access to their heritage through documentation and performance programs that build knowledge and appreciation of America's musical traditions.
