Works that are sold must remain in the gallery until the end of the exhibition, except under special circumstances.

The library will not be responsible for artwork not picked up at the agreed upon time.

The library will generate press releases for the opening of an exhibition and an announcement of the exhibition will be included in the library’s monthly calendar. The artist may send out their own publicity at their own expense.

Agreement:

701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, SC, Announces The 701 CCA Prize 2014

July 10, 2014

seven01cca_logo
701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, SC, announces the second installment of the 701 CCA Prize, a bi-annual art competition and exhibition for professional South Carolina artists 40 years and younger. The project will take place this year with a juried process resulting in an October – December exhibition for the competition’s three finalists and an award celebration announcing the winner.

Eligible artists are invited to apply for the 701 CCA Prize by completing and submitting the application package by Sept. 8, 2014. The application guidelines and package can be downloaded at (www.701cca.org).

“With this second installment of the 701 CCA Prize, 701 Center for Contemporary Art continues to add a crucial component to the eco-system and infra-structure for artists and the visual arts in South Carolina,” 701 CCA board chair Wim Roefs said. “The 701 CCA Prize is the most important platform to highlight some of the extraordinary young talent in South Carolina, and as such, this competition and exhibition has come to fill a void, not unlike the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial has with respect to a regular overview of contemporary art in our state.”

The project’s purpose is to identify and recognize artists 40 years and younger whose work is exemplary in its originality, shows awareness of artistic developments and is of high artistic merit. The 701 CCA Prize will be awarded to one young professional South Carolina artist for outstanding art production since January 1, 2012. Aside from the age requirement, eligible artists must currently live in South Carolina. They must have or have had a solo exhibition in a museum, art center, regular commercial gallery or a designated gallery space in a cultural facility between September 1, 2012 – September 1, 2014. They also must fulfill several practical requirements outlined in the application guidelines. The application fee is $25.

An independent jury of three art professionals will select three finalists for the 701 CCA Prize. The three finalists will be included in the “701 CCA Prize Exhibition” from October 30 – December 21, 2014, at 701 CCA. The exhibition’s opening reception will be Oct. 30. The 701 CCA Prize Winner will be announced during the 701 CCA Prize Celebration on November 27, 2014.

The 701 CCA Prize Winner will receive a six-week, paid residency at 701 CCA; a solo exhibition at 701 CCA; consultation services from a professional advertising and marketing firm; and an ad in a national publication.

The jurors for the 701 CCA Prize 2014 will be announced later.

“The 701 CCA Prize is loosely based on the Turner Prize for artists in the United Kingdom,” board chair Roefs said. “The Turner Prize is one of the most prestigious art awards in the world and generates a lot of exposure for and excitement about the finalists. While the 701 CCA Prize differs in several ways from the Turner Prize, we hope that with a South Carolina context, it will trigger similar interest and excitement.”

701 CCA is a non-profit visual arts center that promotes understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of contemporary art, the creative process and the role of art and artists in the community. The center also encourages interaction between visual and other art forms. 701 CCA is located at 701 Whaley Street, 2nd Floor, Columbia, SC 29201. During exhibitions, hours are Wed, 11am–8pm; Thur.-Fri, 11am-5pm; Sat., 9-5; Sun, 1-5pm.

For further inquiries, contact (director@701cca.org), call Sheldon Paschal at 803/319.9949 or visit (www.701cca.org).

Public Meetings to Identify Cultural Resources and Creative People in Spartanburg County, SC

July 9, 2014

chapmanculturalcenterlogo

Chapman Cultural Center is leading a county wide effort called “Culture Counts” to identify and map all cultural resources, creative industries, and creative people living and working in Spartanburg County, SC. A comprehensive identification of the communities’ cultural resources is the first step in any planning process. Public meetings will be held in several communities in the County in July, August, and September to gather data from citizens on what cultural resources exist.

714spartanburg-CultureCounts

The public is invited to attend meetings in their communities held on Tuesday, July 15, 2014, at Timken Community Center in Cowpens; Thursday, July 17, 2014, at Woodruff City Hall; Thursday, July 31, 2014, at Campobello Gramling Elementary School; Thursday, Aug. 7, 2014, at James F. Byrnes Fine Arts Center in District 5; Tuesday, Aug. 12, 2014, at Upstate Family Resource Center in Boiling Springs; and Thursday, Sept. 4, 2014 at Chapman Cultural Center in downtown Spartanburg, SC.

There will be two meetings each day, one at 11am and the other at 6:30pm. Both will last one hour. Scheduled activities will encourage collaboration and allow attendees to network.

The public meetings will provide an in-depth description of the project, allow citizens to discuss what resources exist, and engage participants in a creative activity. Refreshments will also be served.

Counting cultural resources will allow Spartanburg County to build community, use culture as an economic driver, identify public resources, and prepare for cultural planning. What makes Chapman Cultural Center’s “Culture Counts” project unique is that it includes a census-like count of creative people in addition to facilities, organizations, and businesses in the arts, culture, and creativity. This census will help engage talented people throughout Spartanburg County.

Those who cannot attend may visit Chapman Cultural Center for a physical survey or complete the survey online at (www.goo.gl/DNjryL).

“Every community in Spartanburg County has its own rich cultural heritage,” Jennifer Evins, President and CEO of Chapman Cultural Center, said. “By meeting with citizens throughout the County, we hope to identify previously unknown resources, people, and activities. We want those communities to know that everyone’s culture counts, and that Spartanburg has a lot to offer.”

The process will also use federal standards to map the locations of all non-profit and for-profit arts-related businesses. Spartanburg County has not completed a cultural inventory or census of creative people since 1993 during the last cultural plan.

Successful communities in the United States and abroad have used their creative and cultural resources to their economic benefit. Once Spartanburg’s data has been collected, it will be used to grow economy, increase tourism and hospitality revenues, and celebrate “quality of place.”

“Everyone’s voice counts,” Evins said. “Together, we can identify what we have and work together to use our cultural resources and engage our creative people to the betterment of Spartanburg and all of our citizens.”

Attendance at these public meetings is free. Citizens of all ages, ethnicities, and backgrounds are encouraged to participate.
