About the Exhibition
This August the Arts Center is proud to welcome our newest exhibition to the Bassett Gallery! ArtFields Extended: Arts Center of Kershaw County!
ArtFields started in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration and competition in the heart of a traditional Southern small town. With over $145,000 in cash prizes each year, the competition empowers hundreds of contemporary Southern artists to create dazzling new works. As a part of that competition, over 400 works of art are displayed annually across Lake City, South Carolina. Many artists enter the competition, and some will earn an award – but only the grand prize winner is added to the ArtFields permanent collection each year.
A cross-section of some of the best art produced in the Southeast, ArtFields Extended: Arts Center of Kershaw County features a selection of incredible works from the permanent collection. Each work captures a piece of the time, place, and social context in which it was created, serving as a powerful testament to the incredible talent and perspective of Southern artists.
