Carol Funke, Fiber Artist
“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
The 45th Annual Juried Show is one of the longest running Juried Shows in South Carolina. This year, 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.
