A Fresh Look 2022 Art Competition and Exhibit

On view June 15 – July 29, 2022

Public Reception Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 6-8 pm
Awards presented at 7 pm

A Fresh Look art exhibit and competition opened last week at Southern Arts Society in Kings Mountain. Artists from around the region have submitted over sixty works of art to be judged for cash prizes. Artists were asked to show their most recent work taking a fresh look at the world around them. The theme for this show is very open, allowing for a wide variety of subject matter to be entered.
 
The artwork in the exhibit is bright and uplifting showing that the artists have chosen to see the beauty and color in the world around them. There are a lot of landscapes, wildlife and scenes from beyond our region, perhaps showing a desire to travel again and see more of the outside world. Artists have entered work in a variety of media: oil, acrylic and pastel paintings, photography, mixed media, glass and collage.

About the judge

Judging this year’s show is Myles Calvert, Associate Professor of Art at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC.
