The Lake City ArtFields Collective is proud to once again open submissions for ArtFields, the annual competition and exhibition in Lake City, South Carolina. ArtFields transforms the city into a town-wide gallery as art is displayed not only in galleries but also in boutiques, restaurants, and other local businesses.
Accepted artists are part of a celebration of art and community while they compete for over $100,000 in prizes, plus Southeastern Partner awards that include exhibitions and residencies. Art lovers, collectors, curators, and artists flock to Lake City each spring to see hundreds of artworks in a range of media.
2023 marks year 11 of ArtFields, the beginning of the next decade 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 center.
“We’re thrilled to be sharing the stories of Southeastern artists and showcasing artwork in a unique way that is accessible to art lovers of all backgrounds,” shares Roberta Burns, Director of ArtFields Presents. “This art festival is more than just a competition, it’s an entire town rallying behind the power of art.”
Adult artists of all working media who reside in the competition’s 12 participating Southeastern states (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia) are invited to apply.
