Lake City SCApril 22 - 30
Lake City, South Carolina
Downtown Lake City
350 Artists

Deadline: November 1
Application fee: $25   Booth fee: N/A
Up to 400 works of art will be on display in locally-owned venues, from renovated 1920s warehouses and professional art spaces such as Jones-Carter Gallery and TRAX Visual Art Center to the library, the history museum, the Ronald E. McNair Life History Center, restaurants, boutiques and other shops. During ArtFields, what was once one of South Carolina's most prosperous agricultural communities becomes a living art gallery as we recognize, celebrate and share the artistic talent of the Southeast.

"Often, as artists, we question our inner saboteur and lean away from our chosen paths. I can say now without a doubt that I am questioning less and less by the day, and it is a great feeling and opportunity to be in this position. ArtFields is truly incredible for what you represent and what you do not only for Lake City, but for all of the artists in the South. You have given us a platform and a voice, and I hope you are all filled with pride when you think of your accomplishments."
~ Forrest Lawson, 2019 Grand Prize Winner

"I do knitting and pin loom weaving. So it's not something that usually is accompanied in the same genre as art. But being in the same venue, and being in the same room with the caliber of artists that I saw [at ArtFields], I personally feel that my art has raised up a caliber because I see it differently." ~ Raeus J. Cannon, ArtFields 2019 Competition Artist

"You [ArtFields] encourage us to keep making. You are an incredible cheerleader and your role in the Southern arts community is unprecedented." ~ Kate Burke, ArtFields 2019 Competition Artist

"ArtFields is spiritual. I believe that ArtFields will be here long after I'm gone... I think it's one of those things that has sustaining power. I believe that it's a force. It's a movement more than an event to me. I feel that it has a purpose. And I'm thankful for it." ~Herman Keith, 2016 Mural Artist

"I always saw this art fest as a celebration rather than a competition. The artists and staff I got to connect with throughout the weekend will be long-running ties and allies, I feel it. I can't think of a more impactful art experience I've ever been a part of." ~ William Massey, III, ArtFields 2021 People's Choice 2D Prize Winner
