Calling all artists — no really, all artists, we’ve got plenty of space for you. A region-wide art competition and two local galleries are currently asking for artist submissions. Read on to find out how to submit your work.  If your art gallery or organization is looking for submissions, too, please email us at with details. 

Submissions are now open for the 2017 ArtFields competition. Set in Lake City, S.C., ArtFields is a nine day contest and festival that features artists from around the Southeast. The competition begins on April 21 and ends on April 29, 2017. A press release states, “Artists working in any medium are encouraged to submit their fine art work whether in the form of painting, sculpture, photography, drawing and digital media, or installation art.” Prizes range from the $100,000 top prize to a $1,000 honorable mention prize. The submission deadline is Nov. 16. Apply here.
