The 44th  Annual Juried Show, held at The Warehouse, celebrates one of the longest running Juried Shows in South Carolina.

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.

Our Juror: TO BE ANNOUNCED

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 44th 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 3rd, 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 21st – March 23rd). 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.

WE'D LOVE FOR YOU TO JOIN US!
