Eligibility

All artists 18 years or older may submit works for this show. Only original works of art not shown previously at the Anderson Arts Center and created within the last two years are eligible. These works may be in any media including painting, pastel, drawing, sculpture, pottery, photography, fibers, printmaking, weaving, basketry, graphics, wood, etc. All works to be hung must be professionally framed and securely wired under Plexiglas or glass; gallery wrapped canvas is acceptable. No clip mounting will be accepted. Three-dimensional work must sit solidly on a flat surface or be properly mounted for hanging. If works are not adequately prepared for display, they will be withdrawn from jurying. While there are no size restrictions, entries must be transportable and able to be hung in a conventionally sized gallery.

Our Juror: BRYAN SIELING

Bryan Sieling is Director of Exhibition Design and Production at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) in Washington, DC. During the seven-year lead-up to the museum’s grand opening in 2016, Mr. Sieling oversaw the design, fabrication, and installation of the inaugural exhibitions and their coordination with the base building architecture. Prior to his work at NMAAHC, Sieling was Chief of Design for the Newseum’s relocation, re-design, and expansion to downtown DC, and prior to that, was exhibition designer and design manager at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History.

Bryan earned a Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies with a minor in set design from The George Washington University in 1989. His museum career began in 1981 as a volunteer docent and preparator before joining the staff as a Curator of Education at the Southern Ohio Museum and Cultural Center in Portsmouth, Ohio, his hometown.

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 May 31st. 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, the title of the piece, email address, phone number and address.  $35 entry fee and  $10 shuttle service fee may be paid online or mailed; if paying with a check, artists are welcome to combine the amounts into one check of $45. Work inappropriately boxed will NOT BE ACCEPTED.

For more information regarding this service, and additional opportunities, please call the Anderson Arts Center at 864.222.2787, or email Addy Smith at addys@andersonarts.org.
