Crooked Creek Art League in Chapin, SC, Receives Grant from SC Arts Commission

The Crooked Creek Art League (CCAL) in Chapin, SC, has been awarded a grant by the South Carolina Arts Commission for the 2017 fiscal year. The support is a grant that will help with annual operating expense which will encompass not only monthly general membership meetings which include refreshments and 1 ½ hour arts education program but also helped CCAL conduct its “22nd annual Juried Art Show”. The annual juried show took place Mar. 20, 2017. The show highlighted over 100 pieces of art that were displayed at Crooked Creek Park. The show recognized 20 pieces of art with $2000 awarded in prizes.

The South Carolina Arts Commission grant will enable CCAL to more fully achieve our mission of encouragement and support of new and established artist, to offer outlets to improve skills, display and sell art, and allow artist and art supporters to socialize and network.
