How to Become a BBTCAC Artist

First, all BBTCAC artists must live in one of the nineteen counties that we serve: Bibb, Bullock, Butler, Choctaw, Clarke, Conecuh, Dallas, Greene, Hale, Lowndes, Macon, Marengo, Monroe, Montgomery, Perry, Pickens, Sumter, Washington, and Wilcox. 

Secondly, we ask all potential artists to call or email us to set up an interview. We are always looking for new artists, mediums, and styles from across Alabama's Black Belt. 

Acceptance into BBTCAC's Gallery is a juried process. Not all artists are accepted on their first try, and sometimes only a portion of an artist's work is accepted, but we always work with our artists to grow and advance their art.

What should I bring for my interview?

Once you have set up an interview date, please bring the following with you: 1. At least three good examples of your work that you would like to sell through Black Belt Treasures. You are welcome to bring more. 2. If you have a written biography, publicity, press about your work, please bring a copy for our use in promoting you and your work. If accepted, we will ask you to complete a written interview so we may offer a biographical sketch to customers who purchase your artwork. 3. If you have professional digital images of your artwork, please bring on CD or thumb drive, or forward to 4. Be prepared with prices for each work of art. If you are unsure of this information, we will be glad to work with you to determine a beginning selling price. 

To schedule your interview, please contact us at (334) 682-9878 or email

Individual conversations are available on how to price your work, best display practices, and other tips to successfully sell your work.
