Greenville Center for Creative Arts and City of Women seek to add to our understanding by highlighting the valuable contributions of Greenville women that have often been untold or forgotten.
“We want to help our community gain a better appreciation of the role women have played, and we can think of no better way to do that than through the visual arts, such a pivotal part of our Greenville culture,” according to the art call on the GCCA website.
The call seeks submissions that “highlight historical and contemporary women who have made a significant impact on the community we are today in the areas of healthcare and well-being, education, economic opportunity, science and technology, civic engagement, and arts and culture. This effort will culminate in a free public exhibition that includes a virtual gallery and special juried exhibition. All eligible entries will be featured in the virtual gallery on GCCA’s website. Juror-selected pieces will be exhibited in GCCA’s Community Gallery.”
Prizes will be awarded at an opening reception on Friday, March 4 from 6-9 p.m. the work judged to be “Best in Show” will earn its artist $1,000. First prize is $500, second prize is $250, third prize is $100, and up to three honorable mention awards of $50 will also be presented. A “People’s Choice” award recipient will receive a $100 value in art supplies. The juror is Jonell Logan, creative director at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte.
