The 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2019 is the fifth survey of South Carolina art taking  place at 701 Center for Contemporary Art. As the successor of the South Carolina Triennial,  701 CCA’s Biennial is the main regular event of its kind. The Biennial presents some of the  best contemporary art produced statewide and is a juried, multimedia exhibition. Acceptance to the 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial 2019 was based on a competitive  selection process. Contemporary artists living in South Carolina were invited via a public call  to submit both images of their recent artwork and documentation of their career to 701 CCA.  An independent jury of three art professionals reviewed all submissions, selecting 24 artists  out of a total of about 150 applications. The jurors were Amy Chalmers, Curator of Art at the  South Carolina State Museum in Columbia, SC; Wendy Earle, Curator of Art at the  Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem, NC; and Karen Oremus, Chair  of the Department of Fine Arts at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC. A 701 CCA curatorial  team selected specific works for the exhibition through submitted images. The Biennial 2019 will be presented in two parts, with openings in September and November.  The first part of 701 CCA’s Biennial 2019 will begin with a reception on Thursday, September  26, 7-9 pm, remaining on view through November 3, 2019, at 701 CCA.  The exhibition features works created on a variety of media—oil or acrylic on canvas,  photography, inkjet print, woodcut, mixed media, and three-dimensional art, inter alia—by 12  local contemporary artists, namely Michaela Pilar Brown (Columbia), Jocelyn Châteauvert  (Charleston), Charles Clary (Conway), Diane Kilgore Condon (Greenville), Barbara Duval  (Charleston), Amber Eckersley (Seneca), Eugene Ellenberg (Columbia), Jennifer Kelly Hoskins  (Columbia), Flavia Lovatelli (Columbia), Kate Hooray Osmond (Charleston), Herb Parker  (Charleston), and Michael Webster (Spartanburg). 

701 CCA’s mission is to promote understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of contemporary  art in Columbia, SC. With a gallery and live-work space for an Artist-in-Residence program,  the Center provides artists with resources to develop, create and exhibit visual arts in  conjunction with performing, literary and media arts. 701 CCA also offers year-round cultural
