Allendale County Arts Council seeks artist submissions for first juried art show

The Allendale County Arts Council invites artists age 18 and older to apply for ArtFlow 2015, the council’s first arts festival and juried art show.  A partnership with University of South Carolina Salkehatchie and Salkehatchie Arts, ArtFlow is named in honor of the Salkehatchie River and the five counties it flows through: Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Colleton and Hampton. The ArtFlow 2015 exhibition, along with a companion Arts Market, will take place Oct. 16 – 25 in the atrium at USC Salkehatchie in Allendale as part of a larger celebration for USC Salkehatchie’s 50th anniversary celebration. The application deadline is Sept. 1.

The arts council invites submissions of original artwork from artists in 11 Southeastern states: South Carolina, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Virginia, Alabama, Tennessee, Mississippi, West Virginia, Kentucky and Louisiana.

The juror for ArtFlow is Mana Hewitt, MFA, director of Undergraduate Studies and former director of the McMaster Art Gallery in the School of Visual Art and Design of the University of South Carolina in Columbia, S.C. Her studio work includes ceramics, painting and metals. Hewitt received the South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Fellowship and was named a Southern Arts Foundation Artist. In 2012, her work was included in the 100 Southern Artists.

Prize winners will be announced during the opening reception Oct. 16 from 5 – 9 p.m. Prizes will total $2,500.
