Nature Reconsidered Art Competition

Southern Arts Society is sponsoring Nature Reconsidered, an art exhibition and competition that aims to explore the ever-changing relationship between humans and nature. Since time began, artists have documented, questioned, celebrated and re-imagined our relationship with the natural world. With man’s increasing impact on nature, whether in harmony or in conflict, this exploration is more relevant than ever. Nature Reconsidered seeks to draw out the diverse ways that nature is represented in art. We welcome work that references, investigates, challenges, and/or celebrates our relationship with the natural world.

Work may contain images of people, and man made structures or objects as they relate to, or make a statement about our relationship to nature. All work must be original, completed within the last two years. Painting (oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel), drawing, sculpture, printmaking, photography, mixed media and fiber are eligible. Work must be presented in a professional manner.

Trail Photography Competition

The Kings Mountain Gateway Trail and Southern Arts Society are sponsoring Trail, a competition and exhibit for photos taken on the Gateway Trail over the past two years. Bring your favorite photos of a family outing or a nature scene from one of your visits to the trail. This is a judged show with cash prizes. Photos must be printed on photo paper, framed or mounted, and the image at least 8×10 inches in size.
