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).

re:Visions presents work from interdisciplinary artist Janet Orselli of Tryon, N.C. Orselli combines and assembles found objects and surrounding spaces transforming their meaning and the viewers' experience. Each object speaks of what it once was, its unique history, yet at the same time it becomes something new and unexpected. Orselli’s work requests a slower pace, referring back to a time when objects were cherished and made with care.
One hour prior to the opening reception, Orselli will give an artist talk in the form of storytelling from the point of view of her objects.
Janet Orselli, a Columbia native, was the 701 CCA Artist in Residence from October 2018 through January 2019. The exhibition will include work created during her residency.
