Calling All Visual Artists to our Sixth Annual Juried Art Exhibit

Dear Art Lovers in South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Georgia, and Virginia

Artists Collective | Spartanburg is a non-profit organization – run for and by artists. Our mission is to support each other and provide opportunities for artists. Our annual juried competition is one way that we support the visual artists in the region

Please help us spread the word to artists in your area. Entry into this competition is through our website: exhibitions.artistscollectivespartanburg.org  Entry begins on July 1st.

On our website you can see the entries from our past exhibits, the jurors and the winners. You will also find information about this year’s juror. There is a downloadable poster on our website that you can print or share online. 

Please note: The top prize money is $2,500!

We look forward to hosting this show in the fall and would love to see artists from this southern region enter.
