Opening Reception: Thursday, March 21, 7-9 pm
South Arts is a non-profit, Regional Arts Organization (RAO) headquartered in Atlanta, GA, serving audiences, arts organizations, and individual artists. The organization was founded in 1975 to build on the Souths unique heritage and to enhance the public value of the arts. The South Arts State Fellowship is a state-specific prize awarded to the artists whose work reflects the best of the visual arts in the South. To celebrate the breadth and diversity of the highest quality art being created in the American South, South Arts will hold their Southern Prize Exhibition at 701 CCA in March of 2019, bringing together work from the nine esteemed State Fellowship winners, one from each state within the South Arts region – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. One fellowship winner will then be named the Southern Prize winner during an awards ceremony on April 15, also at 701 CCA. This exhibit will serve as the only opportunity to see the work of all fellowship winners together.
