Juneteenth Festival! The Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg, in partnership with the Chapman Cultural Center, seeks to highlight the work of outstanding BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) artists in the southeastern region through their upcoming juried exhibition, WOVEN. Artists working in all mediums are invited to apply, with a special emphasis on Folk Art and Craft.
Woven is an exhibition that will highlight works of creatives such as quilters, weavers, musicians and visual artists from the southeast region. This exhibition and accompanying event seeks to celebrate and commemorate the visual storytelling and traditions in conversation with the African Diaspora. Through this presentation of visual storytelling and craft-based works we seek
to broaden intergenerational narratives of BIPOC experiences and creative practices.
Accepted works will be exhibited in conjunction with the Guild’s Summer Solstice Art Market and Juneteenth Festival, taking place on June 19, 2021. This exhibition will be held in the first floor gallery space at the Chapman Cultural Center, which receives high foot traffic and is open to the public Mon-Sat.
What a fun day celebrating freedom and friendship with an amazing array of talented artists ranging from from dancers and storytellers to visual artists!
We appreciate everyone who worked hard to make this event happen and all of you who attended. Looking forward to doing it again next year!
