Juried Show Update Effective April 10, 2020

We are so thankful for all of the wonderful artists that participated in this year’s Annual Juried Show! We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we navigated the best way to handle things as the coronavirus forced us to make changes.

Please see the Calendar of Events for changes in artwork pick up dates.

We are pleased to announce the awards selected by our juror, and we invite you to join us on a virtual tour of the show once it is complete. We hope to have the virtual tour available by Thursday, April 16. We will also use the tour to help promote sales of your artwork.

We have had to suspend the Art on The Town activities, but artwork selected for that event is now hanging in our Atrium Gallery, and we will have a virtual tour of that exhibit, also! Additionally, we continue monitoring the public gathering rules in order to make the appropriate decisions regarding a closing reception. Follow us on Facebook or Instagram for news and updates as they become available.

Congratulations to these outstanding artists!

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. More information is available by calling the Anderson Arts Center 864.222.2787.


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.

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.
