ArtFields announces 2023 competition artists

#SCartists well represented

Lake City ArtFields Collective dropped an impressive list today that has The Hub ready for 2023.

Among the more than 400 artists from throughout the Southeast are 124 #SCartists who will vie for the big, $50,000 grand prize. The list features artists known well by the SCAC: fellowship recipients, emerging artists, and artist partners; and we recognize a couple South Arts fellows as well. An email from ArtFields said the panel was "extremely impressed" by the applicants' quality of work. ArtFields 2023 takes place April 19-29 in Lake City.

Talking Heads with Diana Farfán

'Head' to Paris Mountain for a unique experience

(Ed. note: The purpose of this post is fundraising for the South Carolina Arts Foundation, a partner of the S.C. Arts Commission. Similar posts going forward will utilize the "PROMOTION" tag in the tags listed.) Enjoy a day on Paris Mountain with artist Diana Farfán and create a work of art under the instruction of the artist. Farfán’s studio is set in a picturesque environment with spectacular views of downtown Greenville. Upon arrival, participants will enjoy a glass of wine and hors d’oeuvres before settling in to hear about Farfán’s artistic journey from Bogotá, Colombia to Columbia and Greenville, where she currently resides. The artist who created the Bread and Circus series, We Marionette, the Dream Life of Broken Toys and the Toy Republic will discuss these works and the origins of the Heads. With interest piqued and creative juices flowing, participants will spend about two hours designing and hand painting (with underglazes) their own head which has been formed and bisque-fired by the artist prior to the workshop. Each head measures approximately 7” x 5” x 3”. The artist will add the finishing touches before kiln firing the works at a later date. The day ends watching a beautiful sunset and enjoying a tapas meal at the artist’s home. Bonus Experience: Participants are invited to the Kiln Opening (date and time to be determined).

About the Artist

Diana Farfán was born and raised in Bogotá, Colombia. She received a BFA in Ceramics and Printmaking at Universidad Nacional de Colombia in Bogotá and a Master of Fine Art in ceramics and sculpture at the University of South Carolina in 2010. Farfán also studied at the University of Anchorage (Alaska) and at the Tainan National University of the Arts in Taiwan as exchange student. Farfán is a 2019 Liberty Fellow and a member of the Aspen Global Leadership Network.
