We’re one month into our annual call to artists and we’re so thrilled to be sharing the opportunity to participate in ArtFields 2022! Although we normally get to hit the road and see y’all in person, it’s still exciting to be connecting via social media, Zoom, and other platforms. We can’t wait to see all our new friends in Lake City! This year we’re so honored to be named a top opportunity for artists by HyperallergicCharleston City Paper, and others. Submit your artwork HERE by November 1st to be part of our historic tenth year!

Emerging and established artists are invited to apply from September 1 – November 1, 2021 for ArtFields, an annual, nine-day art competition and exhibition in Lake City, SC. Each year, ArtFields brings together art lovers, collectors, and curators who come to see Lake City transform into a town-wide gallery, allowing accepted artists to be part of the celebration while they compete for over $100,000 in prizes. Art will be displayed everywhere from barber shops and clothing boutiques to galleries and a renovated warehouse space. 

The Spring 2022 event will mark a celebration of ten years of awarding life changing prizes, helping launch the careers of countless artists, and acting as the catalyst for Lake City’s transformation into a burgeoning arts mecca. Jamison Kerr, the ArtFields director, is proud of the impact the event has had on all those involved.

“This year, we will surpass $1 million in prize money awarded to incredibly deserving artists,” says Kerr. “Just as importantly, we’ve brought an entire community back to life by celebrating the talent and stories of this region.”

Adult artists of all working media, who reside in the competition’s 12 participating  Southeastern states including – Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, are invited to apply
