From now through November 1, 2019 Southeastern artists, both emerging and established, are invited to apply for ArtFields, an annual, nine-day art competition and exhibition in Lake City, South Carolina. Now in its eighth year, the competition will offer selected artists exposure to the thousands of art lovers, collectors and curators who come to see Lake City transform into a town-wide gallery each spring and the opportunity to compete for over $145,000 in prizes.

To date, ArtFields has awarded nearly $800,000 in prize money, helped launch the careers of countless artists, and ultimately led to Lake City’s transformation into a burgeoning arts mecca.
