The September 2018 Issue of “Carolina Arts” is Now Ready to Download

August 31, 2018

The September 2018 issue of Carolina Arts is up on our website at (http://www.carolinaarts.com/918/918carolinaarts.html) – all 73 pages of it.

On our cover this month is a work by Tom Dimond, which is from the exhibit, “50/50 Gold ’68 – ’18 The Art of Tom Dimond and Terry Jarrard-Dimond”, on view between Sept. 7 through Oct. 25, 2018, at Anderson Arts Center in Anderson, SC. A reception will be held on Sept. 7, from 6:30-8:30pm. The exhibit features over 150 works from five decades from this husband and wife team. In honor of the team Carolina Arts is presenting it’s first ever back cover featuring work by Terry Jarrard-Dimond. We love both works but chose Tom’s for the front cover due to a little more splash of color. At least that was my argument – we’re a husband and wife team here too.

So download that PDF and dig in – it makes for good reading and shows that you have lots of opportunities to enjoy the visual arts in the Carolinas. And, don’t forget to find a way to thank our advertisers – they make this publication possible.

Don’t forget that the deadline for our October 2018 issue will be Sept. 24 at 5pm.

The Craft Emergency Relief Fund Re-Opens

August 10, 2018

Dear Friends,

I’m pleased to announce that our Craft Emergency Relief Fund Program is re-opened and we are accepting new inquiries to help artists facing career-threatening emergencies.  Generous supporters answered the call to replenish our fund after an unprecedented year of natural disasters. I want to personally thank every one of you for helping us raise over $350,000.

There are many artists who still need our help and have been patiently waiting for our program to re-open. CERF+ is committed to providing them with financial assistance and in-kind donations from individuals and businesses of equipment, supplies and booth-fee waivers.
Since the beginning of our fiscal year (October 1, 2018), 108 artists have received an unprecedented $508,701 in emergency financial relief from CERF+. This compares to 59 artists who received $239,601 in Fiscal Year 2017.

We’re now hearing from artists about the progress they have made on their road to recovery. From California to Puerto Rico, Texas to the U.S. Virgin Islands, artists are rebuilding their studios, making and selling their work, and contributing to recovery in their communities. You can help artists rebound from emergencies by supporting their businesses and by donating to CERF+.

Thank you for being part of the Artists Safety Net.

Sincerely yours,

Cornelia Carey
Executive Director
