43rd Annual Juried Show Juror Video
The 43rd Annual Juried Show, held at The Warehouse, celebrates the longest running Juried Show in South Carolina. 262 artists entered a total of 530 pieces of work. Prior to the Jury event, the two day m.Art.ket and Member Preview Party, allowed the general public to view and pre-purchase works before jurying.
Art Shuttle Service
This year there will be an Artwork Shuttle Service to select areas in SC. Artists will have the opportunity to deliver Juried Show entries to a central location in each of these cities. There will be an additional $10 fee for this service.
The Anderson Arts Center will pick up the entries and then return the work after the show closes on June 1st. All works participating in the process will be covered by liability insurance.
All work MUST be boxed in a reusable container, with each box labeled with the artist’s name, name of the piece, email address, phone number and address; and include the $35 entry fee, proper entry paperwork and $10 shuttle service fee; if paying with a check, artists are welcome to combine the amounts into one check of $45. Work inappropriately boxed will NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Our Juror: Esther Randall
Esther E. Randall is a Professor and Gallery Director in the Department of Art and Design at Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Kentucky. Earning her MFA in sculpture from Indiana University in 1978 and her BFA from the University of Georgia in 1972, she is the recipient of an Al Smith Fellowship in 1998 and two Kentucky Foundation For Women Grants in 1992 and 2007. Although trained as a figurative sculptor, Ms. Randall works with a wide variety of media and approaches, and has been exhibited widely regionally and nationally. Her most recent work has been involved with landscape: either the metaphorical landscapes of her digital prints or the small drawings of the Kentucky landscape at night.
Born in Schenectady New York, Ms. Randall moved to Aiken South Carolina when she was three years old. Currently she lives in Berea, Kentucky with her husband Oliver Keels, and cat Peanut.
PARTNERSHIP for PUBLIC ART: SculpTOUR
Sculpture artists are invited to participate in the Anderson Arts Center/City of Anderson’s Partnership for Public Art: SculpTOUR competition and exhibition as a part of the 43rd Annual Juried Show. Up to six outdoor sculptures will be juried into the year long outdoor exhibition for cash prizes of $1,000 each. This unique Anderson public art competition will be judged by a selection committee. All installations must be completed by Art on the Town, May 4th, and will remain for one year.
Artists chosen as finalists will be required to be available during the installation and take down processes. All installation costs and insurance will be the responsibility of the Anderson Arts Center. Each sculpture artist will be required to complete and submit an entry form and pay an entry fee during the take in days (March 22nd – March 24th). Complete descriptions of the piece and artist’s resumes should be included at entry. Sculptures too large to be submitted during the take in for the juried show must be submitted prior to the entry dates (March 22nd – March 24th) by photographs emailed to email@example.com. More information is available by calling the Anderson Arts Center 864.222.2787.
