If there's some sort of community college or university or something near you that has a photography program, you might go in there and take a look at the bulletin boards to see if any local cafes, etc, are soliciting artwork for show. I've seen a couple of them on the bulletin board where I take classes. My guess is that most of the students wouldn't know anything about it, unless they're close to graduation, but instructors (particularly the ones who are also program advisors) should have more information.
