ArtFields Festival Spotlights Over 450 Southeastern US Artists

The ArtFields Competition & Festival in Lake City, South Carolina, turns what was once one of the state’s most prosperous agricultural communities into a living art gallery that shows some of the best art of the Southeastern United States.

A record-breaking 450 artworks, ranging from paintings and sculptures to installations and new media works, will be displayed in local venues, including renovated warehouses from the 1920s, art galleries, restaurants, boutiques, and other businesses. Over 300 additional artworks created by South Carolina student artists will also be on display. Over $100,000 of prize money is awarded each year in this celebration of art and community.

This year, ArtFields is unveiling brand new artist studios — a dedicated location for artists to hone their practice, explore new ideas, and find community. We’re proud to unveil this space, Acline Studios, as the first of its kind in Lake City. Included in the renovated space are individual studios for artists to rent, a gallery for exhibitions and community programming, and art equipment, starting with a soda kiln.

The nine-day event also features live music, a Portrait Contest honoring student-athletes as models, the Makers Market where artisans sell their handmade pieces, Plein Air Competition, and more. Don’t miss the explosion of art in Lake City this year.

The competition artwork is on view from April 26 through May 4 in Lake City, South Carolina. ArtFields is a community arts organization with year-round art initiatives aimed at celebrating the immense artistic talent of the Southeast.
