The Upstate Book Project is a collaborative juried art and writing project that allows up to 30 artists throughout Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina to contribute to a published book. Applications will be accepted from artists residing in Spartanburg, Union, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Laurens, Pickens, Polk and Rutherford counties. Bailie, (the project’s creator) will start the story and illustrate the first page. Selected artists will be required to write a 200 word paragraph to continue the story-line and then create an 18″ x 24″ vertical illustration to accompany their story-line then pass it to the next artist. The final product will be a completed book in bound magazine format containing the entire illustrated story.
Applications must be received between 10-1-16 and 10.29.16.
