One of South Carolina’s signature arts events – ArtFields, held each spring in Lake City (Florence Co.) – is seeking art from students in grades 1-12.
ArtFields Jr., a year-round program that engages students from 5K to 12th grade, is holding a student art competition in conjunction with ArtFields 2018 that gives cash prizes to winning artists in primary, elementary, middle, and high school groupings, based on panel review. All art submitted is considered by the panel. Check out 2017 submissions here for inspiration!
The deadline for submissions is coming soon, on Tuesday, Feb. 13. More information on ArtFields Jr. is available in, and by clicking on, the graphic below.
ArtFields started in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration and competition in the heart of a traditional Southern small town. With more than $120,000 up for grabs — and awarded based upon the input of every visitor to ArtFields and a panel of judges made up of acclaimed artists and educators, the competition offers life-changing cash prizes to artists across all media who live in 12 Southeastern states.
More than 400 masterpieces will be displayed in locally-owned venues, from renovated circa 1920s warehouses and Smithsonian-qualified art galleries to upscale restaurants and start-up boutiques, in a celebration of art and community. What was once one of South Carolina’s most prosperous agricultural communities becomes a living art gallery as we recognize, celebrate, and share the artistic talent of the Southeast.
