Upstate juried exhibition to highlight women of impact
City of Women opens Friday in Greenville
Exhibition runs March 4-April 27
Upstate artists are set to help celebrate impactful Greenville women in an exhibition starting Friday at Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA).
GCCA issued a call in late 2021 for art that highlights historical and contemporary women who have made a significant impact in the Greenville community. More than 50 artists submitted for judging by juror Jonel Logan, creative director of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte. Areas of recognition include healthcare and well-being, education, economic opportunity, science and technology, civic engagement, and (natch) arts and culture.
This effort will culminate in a free public exhibition that will be featured through a virtual gallery on GCCA’s website and in a special juried exhibition opening on First Friday, March 4, from 6-9 p.m. and on display through April 27. All appropriate entries will be included in the virtual gallery. Juror selections will be exhibited in GCCA’s Community Gallery and be eligible for $2,000 in prizes.
Juror selections can be seen in GCCA’s Community Gallery. To view the virtual gallery and see all submissions, visit https://www.artcentergreenville.org/exhibitions/city-of-women. From March 4-6, the public can vote online for their favorite piece to receive a “People’s Choice” prize package of art supplies.
Greenville Center for Creative arts is located at 101 Abney St. in Greenville. Greenville City of Women will run through April 27 on Tuesday-Fridays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Free.
