Arts Council of York County in Rock Hill, SC, Announces Winners of “28th Annual Juried Competition”

August 31, 2017

The Arts Council of York County in Rock Hill, SC, announced the winners of the “28th Annual Juried Competition” at a free, public reception at the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St., Rock Hill, SC on Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017. This exhibition will be on display in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts through Sept. 10, 2017.


“Field Notes 33” by Joana Wardell

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.

Margaret Strickland, a Charlotte based photographer, has been making portraits of family, friends, and strangers for over a decade. Born and raised in Valdosta, GA, Strickland was influenced by cultural norms of the Deep South — a foundation that would later surface as an undercurrent in her work. Strickland’s work explores concepts of gender identity and performance, expectations of the self and of society, and the confluence of these ideas in the constructed poses of intimate portraits. Her works have been shown nationally at galleries and institutions, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, and The Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte, NC.

Strickland selected 33 works out of 114 entries by 47 artists from 18 cities and 4 states to be displayed in the 28th Annual Juried Competition exhibition in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts. Awards were presented to:
