Persistence presents over fifty commemorative medals by artist Mana Hewitt. The series is in recognition of the courage and perseverance of women who have challenged societal perceptions and worked to improve conditions for all. Made of etched brass, copper, sterling silver and enamel, each medal characterizes an individual through portraiture, quotes and biographies.

“They are intended to familiarize and instruct, lest we forget the women that have forged a path to give us voice today.” – Mana Hewitt

In this exhibition, kendallprojects, the name under which Jason Kendall presents his art, incorporates drawing, painting, sculpture and performance. The exhibition addresses American Football culture by exploring themes of identity construction, masculinity, violence in sports and conditional self-worth based on physical performance. The artist is not only a spectator but also a critical analyst, distancing himself from the self-destructive nature exhibited by many athletes.

kendallprojects explores the artist’s personal experience. From 1994-1998, he played football at the University of South Carolina and North Greenville College. He quit to escape the negative physical and psychological aspects of the sport and to pursue a career as an artist.

Launched in 2017, the South Arts Southern Prize and State Fellowships celebrate and support the highest quality art being created in the American South. This exhibition is the first time South Arts will bring together work from the nine State Fellowship recipients, one from each state within the South Arts region. An independent jury panel selected the nine state fellows from more than 800 applicants based solely on artistic excellence. Each artist will receive a $5,000 award. A second jury panel will select two finalists for the Southern Prize. One will receive an additional prize of $10,000, and the other, the $25,000 Southern Prize and a two-week residency at The Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Sciences in Rabun Gap, Ga. The exhibition at 701 CCA will be the only opportunity to see the work of all fellowship winners together.

The 2019 State Fellowship award recipients are: Jamey Grimes (Alabama), Amy Gross (Florida), Bo Bartlett (Georgia), Lori Larusso (Kentucky), Stephanie Patton (Louisiana), Rory Doyle (Mississippi), Andrew Hayes (North Carolina), Virginia Scotchie (South Carolina) and Andrew Scott Ross (Tennessee).
