701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia, SC, Calls for Participation in Columbia Open Studios 2015 – Deadline is Dec. 6, 2014


Artists across the midlands, join 701 CCA for Columbia Open Studios 2015, a free, weekend-long tour of artists’ studios across Columbia and Richland and Lexington Counties that will take place Saturday, April 11, and Sunday, April 12, 2015.

Join art lovers and other participating artists as thousands of visitors tour private, working studios, and learn about the artists’ cultural backgrounds, their tools and techniques and how their personal stories impact their art. Share this opportunity with your artist friends!

During the 2014 event weekend, participating studios received approximately 9,000 visits, 50% of which came from outside of Columbia city limits, and artists sold over $30,000 in artwork. 701 CCA does not take a commission on artists’ sales.

Artists can register on our website or our Facebook page!

Recruit an artist who hasn’t participated in Columbia Open Studios in 2014 and 2013, the past two years, and earn a $25 DISCOUNT on your own registration for each new recruit. Register yourself, pay your own registration fee in full, recruit one or more colleagues and receive a $25 discount reimbursement after your recruit has registered and paid. Please record the name of your recruit(s) on the registration form.

Recruiting other artists in your area will create a concentration of artists near you and trigger more visitors during the event.
