An annual, nine-day art competition and exhibition in Lake City, South Carolina, ArtFields awards more than $140,000 in cash prizes to artists from across the Southeast. The event also has infused new energy, creativity, and growth into Lake City and its surrounding communities. ArtFields is the flagship art event in a town where an abundance of high-quality art is on view all year long. Aside from a growing collection of public art, the city has several exhibitions running at all times in professional art spaces such as Jones-Carter Gallery and TRAX Visual Art Center. More new art venues, including a sculpture garden, are on the horizon.
For my ArtFields proposal, titled “Clown Off The Clock.” I have 16 panels that make up a large image. This work is partially completed and I encourage viewers to come by and watch me work, ask questions, and help spread the word about my process of transferring ink onto beeswax.
