Youth Art Month
Warehouse Galleries, February 23 – March 19, 2021
Youth Art Month (YAM) is a nationwide celebration of the visual arts that began in 1961 by the Council for Art Education. Our YAM Exhibit welcomes student artwork from all five public school districts, private schools, and home school associations in Anderson County. Teachers from these groups submit work to the Arts Center, a juror reviews the work and assigns awards. There are hundreds of different pieces of work available for viewing and we are so excited at the amount of talent the youth of Anderson County have!

“A paper maker is a true recyclist. I am a paper maker; therefore, I am a finder of ‘things.’ I am always on the lookout for different textures, designs, and things to put into my paper. Many of my creations are representative of nature, some have hidden natural elements, some also are quilt designs, and some are just plain fun to view. I feel that the making of handmade paper has been a powerful way to give a voice to my creative and healing spirit.” – Carol Funke
45th Annual Juried Show
Warehouse Galleries, April 3 – May 14, 2020
The 45th Annual Juried Show is one of the longest-running Juried Shows in South Carolina. In 2020, 162 artists entered a total of 262 pieces of artwork to be juried. All entered works were juried by Joseph Peragine whose paintings, sculptures, and animation have been presented in galleries, contemporary art spaces, and museums throughout the USA and internationally. Due to circumstances with the coronavirus, the 45th Annual Juried Show was converted to a virtual exhibit.
Atrium Gallery: Art on the Town
Due to circumstances with the coronavirus, Art on the Town was converted to a virtual exhibit in the Arts Center’s Atrium Gallery. Arts Center representatives made selections from unaccepted juried show entries to curate the exhibit. We hope you enjoy!
