African American Fiber Artists Sought for 15th Annual Exhibition in North Charleston

The City of North Charleston Cultural Arts Department is seeking entries from African American textile artists from across the nation for a special exhibition presented as a component of the 2022 North Charleston Arts Fest, set to take place May 4-8 in North Charleston, SC. African American artists, ages 18 and up, living in the United States and working in the medium of fiber are invited to participate in the 15th Annual African American Fiber Art Exhibition, titled From Chaos to Beloved Community: Envisioning Social Justice. The exhibition will be on display at North Charleston City Hall, opening on the first day of the Arts Fest, May 4, 2022, and remaining on view until June 17, 2022. A $30 entry fee allows artists to submit a maximum of four entries for consideration. Up to two entries per artist may be selected by the curator of the exhibition. Artwork submitted for consideration does not have to be complete at time of entry. Artists may enter works in progress. Following the close of the exhibition, up to twenty works will be selected to tour the state through the South Carolina State Museum’s 2022/2023 Traveling Exhibitions Program. Sites across South Carolina may request the exhibit to tour in their facilities, thus providing additional exposure for the selected artists.
