Florence Regional Arts Alliance in Florence, SC, Calls for Entries From NC and SC Artists for “Small Works 2015” – Deadline Oct. 9, 2015

September 11, 2015

Florence-Regional-Arts-Alliance

Entering its second year, “Small Works 2015″ is a juried visual arts competition featuring a compilation of 40 small pieces selected from a wide range of media and artists. The show aims to provide a place for the emerging artist to place alongside the professional artist. In a small works competition, finished pieces may be no larger than 12” x 12” including the frame. The size constraints provide an exhibit that is more intimate in nature and also a venue for a young art collector to begin acquiring smaller more affordable pieces.

All artists 18 and older living in South or North Carolina may submit work for this show. Entries are submitted online at (www.florenceartsalliance.org). Only original work, not previously shown with the Florence Regional Arts Alliance or with the Greater Lake City Artist Guild within the last two years are eligible. These 2-D works may be in any medium including photography. Artists may submit up to four entries at $15 per entry. Three cash prizes will be awarded: First Place $500, Second Place $250, Third Pace $100 and Honorable Mention.

The competition will be juried by Edward Puchner. He is Curator of Exhibitions for the McKissick Museum at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC. A dedicated scholar and arts advocate, prior to joining the staff at USC, Puchner worked at a variety of museums, galleries and cultural non-profits, including the National Gallery of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Indiana University Art Museum and the Clark Art Institute, earning a doctorate in Art History from Indiana University in 2012. He also served as gallery manager at Luise Ross Gallery, a significant New York gallery of modern and contemporary art. Puchner has published articles and reviews for “Raw Vision” magazine and his article “‘Winning the Peace’ over Mr. Prejudice: Horace Pippin, the Social Gospel, and the Double V” was recently published in connection with the exhibition, “Horace Pippin: The Way I See It” at the Brandywine River Museum of Art.

Last year, the competition was hosted in the Art Trail Gallery and winners included Paolo Gualdi (first), Allison Triplett (second), Doug Gary (third) and Colleen Critcher (honorable mention). This year the exhibition will be hosted by the Greater Lake City Artist Guild within the Art Fields® Office at 110 East Main Street in Lake City, SC, from Nov. 3 – 28, 2015. This year, prizes will be awarded at a reception on Nov. 3, from 5:30-7:30pm.

The deadline for entries is Oct. 9, 2015, by 6pm.

The show and competition is underwritten in its entirety by a generous  gift from International Knife and Saw, Inc. International Knife and Saw (IKS) is a manufacturer of high quality industrial machine knives and accessories. Their continued investment in the Arts encourages and supports the quality of life and economic growth within Florence County.

The Florence Regional Arts Alliance is pleased to see the competition traveling throughout the county it aims to serve.
