Call to Artists: Artists Touched by Carl. R. Blair

Deadline February 8, 2016

NO Entry Fee

The Metropolitan Arts Council is organizing Artists Touched by Carl. R. Blair, a juried exhibit of work by artists who at some point have had the artwork they produce or the life they lead as an artist influenced or inspired by Carl R. Blair, longtime artist and arts educator in Greenville.

The exhibit is open to both 2D and 3D artists.

Artists are asked to provide a short statement about that influence and inspiration as part of their exhibit application. The statement, to be no longer than 100 words, will be compiled in an exhibit catalogue as well as potentially incorporated into the design of the exhibit. The required statement will not play a role in the jurying of the participating artists but can be considered a “tribute opportunity.”

A tri-fold brochure can be downloaded here:  PROSPECTUS

Entry form must be returned to MAC in person or by mail by Monday, February 8th. Digital images can be provided on CD or by email. Written statements must be provided digitally. Deadline applies to image and statement submissions as well.

Carl R. Blair is one of Greenville’s most accomplished and respected visual artists, co-founder of Greenville’s oldest and still functioning gallery, Hampton II Gallery, and a retired arts professor,
spending his career at Bob Jones University and the Art School at the Greenville County Museum of Art. Carl has inspired and influenced generations of students and local artists through his talent and inexhaustable creation of work as well as through his commitment to arts education.
