The 45th  Annual Juried Show, held at The Warehouse, celebrates one of the longest running Juried Shows in South Carolina. 217 artists representing 3 states entered a total of 408 pieces of work. 159 pieces were accepted into the Juried Show displayed April 5 – May 16. 50 pieces were accepted to Art on the Town and will be on display in varying venues in downtown Anderson May 3 – May 24.

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 If works are not adequately prepared for display, they will be withdrawn from jurying.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: Joseph Peragine

Joseph Peragine’s paintings, sculptures, and animation have been presented in galleries, contemporary art spaces and museums throughout the USA and internationally. Recent exhibitions include a solo exhibition titled After The Hunt at Marcia Wood Gallery and group exhibitions Lu Art Gallery in Baoding City, China and in Ireland at the Butler gallery in Kilkenny. Born in Jersey City, New Jersey, Peragine lives with his family in Atlanta and is a professor in Drawing, Painting, and Printmaking at Georgia State University.

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. 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.

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 45th 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 9th, 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 19th – March 21st). 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 by photographs emailed to addys@andersonarts.org.
