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.

A Columbia artist was named winner of the 2022 701 CCA Prize this week, a biennial juried award for artists under 40 that is presented by the 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia's Olympia neighborhood.

Installation artist Jordan Sheridan, who was named an SCAC Emerging Artist for FY2022, is a full-time faculty instructor at the University of South Carolina, teaching courses in painting. Her installation, THE MOTHER, was featured in the 701 CCA Biennial of 2021 and at the 2022 ArtFields competition, the latter of which earned her a summer residency at the McColl Center in Charlotte. Sheridan has also received a residency through Stormwater Studios in Columbia. Her next exhibition is a solo show at the Redux Contemporary Arts Center in Charleston. The 701 CCA Prize Exhibition, featuring the work of the three finalists will remain on view through January 15.
“I was taken aback on hearing my name called as the 701 CCA Prize winner,” Sheridan said. “The artists I competed with were fierce, and I am so proud to have exhibited in the 701 CCA gallery with them. I am thrilled by this award; I have dreamt of a residency at 701 CCA and filling the entire gallery space with my work. I will turn the area into a massive installation with woven womb rooms filled with sculptures and experimental paintings. I am working with light technicians to develop lights specifically for my work and plan to design sculptures experimenting with 3D printers and welding.” The other two finalists have impressive résumés of their own. Kate Hooray Osmond, a Charleston painter; and Brittany M. Watkins, a Columbia mixed media artist, are both South Arts state fellows. The independent jury panel consisted of Karen Comer Lowe, curator-in-residence at Spelman College; Shannon Lindsey, gallery director of the University of Central Florida and a past 701 CCA Prize winner; and Michael Neumiester, curator of the Columbia Museum of Art. In her for review forthe panel, Lowe stated, “The Mother: Entanglement is a visually exciting installation that encompasses space through color and form. These contrasts and tensions play out along the draped, crochet paintings. The artists added the tension between sculptural and pictorial qualities to the familiar “push and pull” of color that is usually present in traditional painting.”
Sheridan was born in Southeastern Arkansas in 1989. She gave birth to her son, Samuel, in 2017 while attending graduate school at the University of South Carolina. As a mother pursuing an MFA degree, Sheridan’s work organically shifted to include her understanding of motherhood. This change in research pushed her from working primarily in 2-D painting to large-scale textile installations.
