Local artists, take note.

The 2017 Artists of the Upstate Juried Exhibition presented by Artisphere is accepting submissions now through March 31 from local artists. This juried exhibition, supported by a grant from the Metropolitan Arts Council, seeks to recognize the outstanding quality and diversity of work being generated by visual artists of the Upstate. Artisphere runs May 12-14.

The show is open to artists 18+ living within a 35-mile radius of Greenville. Entries must be original works of art that have been completed within the last three years. Entries in all media categories will be accepted but should not exceed 40 pounds in weight or 60 inches in height or width. The exhibition is not judged in media categories.

The show’s juror is Denise Woodward-Detrich, director of the Lee Gallery in the Department of Art at Clemson University.

Four cash prizes will be distributed including:

Best in Show ($1,000); 2nd Place ($750); 3rd Place ($500); Merit Award ($250).

The 2017 Artists of the Upstate Best in Show award winner will be invited to exhibit work as the featured guest artist at the Art Cellar during the Artisphere 2018 festival.

Go here to apply by March 31.

  1. Why wasn’t the juried Best of the Upstate show one of the 10 best things to go to or watch for during Artisphere weekend? It wasn’t included in the Gville. News. I hope there will be signs directing visitors to the Founders Room for this outstanding competition./show.
