Arts Council of York County in Rock Hill, SC, Announces Winners of Its “25th Annual Juried Competition”

August 24, 2014


The Arts Council of York County announced the winners of the “25th Annual Juried Competition” at a free, public reception at the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St., Rock Hill, SC, on Thursday, Aug. 14, 2014, at 6pm.  This exhibition will be on display in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts through Sept. 14, 2014.

Each year, the “Annual Juried Competition” is open internationally to artists 18 and older. Only original work, created in the last two (2) years, and not previously shown at the Center for the Arts, Dalton Gallery is accepted. All forms of media are eligible, including video.

Juror, Marty Epp-Carter, who currently teaches printmaking, drawing, and portfolio preparation theory at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities. Previously, she served as an adjunct lecturer in the art departments at Anderson University and Clemson University. Epp-Carter relocated to South Carolina in 2006 from Boston, MA, where she taught at the DeCordova and Danforth Museums. She holds a BS in Visual Communication from Boston University, an MS in Counseling Psychology from Lesley University, a BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and an MFA in Printmaking from Clemson University. In addition to teaching, Epp-Carter maintains a studio that serves as her workshop where she creates her own works of art. She has shown nationally and internationally, and her works are held in private and public collections, including the Boston Public Library, the DeCordova Museum (MA), Emory & Henry College (VA), the Permobil Foundation (Sweden), and Galerie d’Art Contemporain (France).

When jurying a show, Marty Epp-Carter looks for work that surprises her, that shows an obsessiveness and keen attention to detail. She is drawn to work that shows a kind of transformation, changing a familiar space to create something new, and she admires and respects extreme skill in handling material. Epp-Carter reminds us that juried shows are not necessarily a record of the best work in that particular area or region; rather, they are a record of the intersection of submitted work and the juror’s taste and expectations regarding art. For the “25th Annual Juried Competition”, Epp-Carter’s choices bring together strong pieces of art, where each sits squarely in the midst of the contemporary art dialogue in South Carolina. She selected 38 works by 26 artists out of 142 entries from 23 cities and 5 states to be displayed in the “25th Annual Juried Competition” exhibition in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts. The winners of the “25th Annual Juried Competition” are:

“Findlay and James” by Robert O. Keith IV

Best of Show: “Findlay and James” by Robert O. Keith IV
1st Place: “Bryce Canyon” by Mike Henry
2nd Place: “Vessel No. 362″ by Lee Sipe
3rd Place: “Tripenta” by Will Johnson
Honorable Mention: “Something About Mechanized Production” by Josiah Copley
Honorable Mention: “From Series ‘Touching Water'” by Rebecca Jacobs

Turchin Center for the Visual Arts in Boone, NC, Announces Winners of “28th Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition”

August 6, 2014


Appalachian State University’s Turchin Center for the Visual Arts and An Appalachian Summer Festival present the “28th Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Competition & Exhibition” – a national, juried competition presented annually on Appalachian’s campus in Boone, NC. Made possible by the generosity of longtime arts supporters Doris and the late Martin Rosen, this competition continues a long-held tradition of showcasing the best of contemporary American sculpture.

This year’s juror was artist Wayne Trapp. Out of 46 submissions, Trapp identified 10 finalists to display their work during the 2014 competition. On July 26 following the Sculpture Walk, Trapp announced the top three prize winners.

“Prairie Ray,” by Justin Dearduff

Those winners are:

First Prize: Justin Dearduff, “Prairie Ray” (Dell Rapids, SD)

Second Prize: Mary Ruden & Robert Benfield, “Einstein Sundial” (Seymour, TN)

Third Prize: Joseph Bigley, “Formal-ly #1″ (Boone, NC)

Each prize winner received a cash prize.

Other participants included:

Gwendolyn Kerney, “Tango Heart” (Lenoir City, TN)

Davis Whitfield, “Keeping Venice Afloat” (Sylva, NC)

Glenn Zweygardt, “Isis Revisited” (Alfred Station, NY)

Robert Buganski, “Profiles #14″ (Garrettsville, OH)

David Jones, “Monument to Nowhere” (Laramie, WY)

Catherine Hoskinson, “The Shooting Star” (Brooklyn, NY)

Aaron Hussey, “Turret” (Baton Rouge, LA)

Each artist submitted a statement about his or her work. Here are excerpts from the winners’ statements:

Justin Dearduff – “Growing up in land locked South Dakota, I have been fascinated by sharks and rays as long as I can remember. I had the chance while vacationing in Key West and Monterey to get up close to some and watching them fly through the water and the graceful movements of the rays inspired this work. When you look up at the sculpture I wanted to evoke the feeling of flying through the depths of the sea”.

Mary Ruden & Robert Benfield – “The Einstein Sundial we created shows the Photoelectric Effect Law, a Nobel Prize winning breakthrough for Albert Einstein’s work with light as a quantum package of energy or photons. It consists of a portrait of Einstein hand engraved into aluminum metal, and visual elements representing his discovery. The rainbow colors painted in the sculpture represent light spread into a spectrum of frequencies. We feel this piece offers educational value and is a point of interest to viewers as they may observe it as it marks time. In order to tell solar time, it should be facing due south and at a latitude common to North Carolina or Tennessee.”

Joseph Bigley – “Eluding a sense of movement and rejuvenation, organic elements sprout from geometric forms referencing the resiliency of nature.”

This exhibition runs through April 30, 2015.

“SC Watermedia Society’s 37th Annual Exhibition” Takes Place at Anderson Arts Center in Anderson, SC

August 5, 2014

Editor’s Note: For the first time in about 20 years or more – we didn’t offer our readers info about the annual members exhibition of the SC Watermedia Society. Due to health problems the person who usually would get us this info turned over publicity to folks in Anderson. If I had known that ahead of time I would have looked for the info myself. The folks in Anderson have a bad habit of not communicating very well – at least with us, but I don’t see much info about their exhibits anywhere outside of the Anderson area. They receive money from the SC Arts Commission which mostly comes from our tax dollars, but they don’t feel they need to let us know what they are doing with that money. No wonder the Tea Baggers want to take away arts funding. We have had a long time relationship with the SC Watermedia Society and we were not going to let this go by without getting the word out the best we can – now in this post and next month in the Sept. issue of “Carolina Arts”.


The SC Watermedia Society (SCWS) announces its annual juried competition. The opening reception was held on Aug. 2, 2014, at the Anderson Arts Center, 110 Federal Street, Anderson, SC. The exhibition will continue through Sept. 12, 2014.

The juror for the show was William Jameson, an internationally-renowned artist specializing in landscapes and residing in Saluda, NC. The exhibition will feature 100 of the most talented water-based media artists from across the states of South Carolina, Georgia and North Carolina. Additionally, SCWS hosted a painting workshop with Jameson at the Anderson Arts Center June 23-25, 2014.

The exhibition will culminate with the 30-award winning entries featured in a show that will travel throughout the state. The exhibit will provide public access to the “best of the best” and is facilitated by the South Carolina State Museum.

SCWS is a non-profit and IRS 501C3 corporation whose purpose is promoting the artistic and professional interests of its members and providing visual arts programs to the public. Its almost 300 members are from South Carolina, North Carolina, and Georgia.

Rosemary Moore of Honea Path, SC, is serving as the 2014 presiding officer for SCWS. In announcing the 2014 plans, she said, “Members of the SCWS represent the most talented and diverse artists in the region. The exhibition will draw many art appreciators to Anderson and to venues that will host the traveling show.”

The SC Watermedia Society (SCWS) is the only statewide visual arts organization in South Carolina. It nurtures and promotes artists who work in watermedia (i.e. watercolor, acrylic, gouache, casein and mixed media in conjunction with watermedia on any surface) by providing exhibition opportunities, professional development, and educational programs. The public is provided with many quality art experiences including exhibitions and art education in the form of lectures, demonstrations, and workshops. For more than 25 years cities across the state have hosted the Annual Traveling Exhibition; more than 20,000 visitors viewed the exhibition last year.
