VHS Store Installation – Coming 2016 at ArtFields!

In April I will assemble an installation for the ArtFields 2016 competition in Lake City, South Carolina.  This work has been in process for over a year, and will incorporate 200+ individual VHS slipcase sculptures arranged to resemble the nostalgic feeling of a VHS rental store.  The show will open at the R.O.B in Lake City on April 22, and will be on view until April 30th.

The ArtFields website states, “ArtFields® started in 2013 with a simple goal: honor the artists of the Southeast with a week’s worth of celebration and competition in the heart of a traditional Southern small town. With over $100,000 up for grabs, awarded based on the input of every visitor to ArtFields and a panel of judges made up of acclaimed artists and educators, the competition offers life-changing amounts of money to all artists in all media who live in the twelve Southeastern states. Over 400 masterpieces will be displayed in locally-owned venues, from renovated warehouses from the 1920’s to Smithsonian-qualified art galleries to upscale restaurants and start-up boutiques, in a mutual celebration of art and community. What was once one of South Carolina’s most prosperous agricultural communities now becomes a living art gallery as we continue to demonstrate the best of the Southeast and recognize the incredible talent we have to offer.”

Past winners of ArtFields include my colleague at Coastal Carolina University, Jim Arendt.
