City of Women, an initiative that aims to advance the role of women in our community and businesses, will launch in Greenville with a juried exhibition at Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA). The initiative’s community-based mission is to celebrate the legacy of impactful women who have played a significant role in making Greenville the vibrant community it is today.
More than 50 Upstate artists submitted work in a variety of mediums through an open submission process that highlights historical and contemporary women who have made a significant impact in the Greenville community. Areas of recognition include healthcare and well-being, education, economic opportunity, science and technology, civic engagement, and arts and culture. The juror for the exhibition is Jonell Logan, Creative Director of the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, NC. This exhibition is sponsored by Wyche, P.A.
This effort will culminate in a free public exhibition that will be featured through a virtual gallery on GCCA's website and in a special juried exhibition opening on First Friday, March 4, from 6-9 p.m. and on display through April 27. All appropriate entries will be included in the virtual gallery. Juror selections will be exhibited in GCCA’s Community Gallery and be eligible for $2,000 in prizes.
Juror selections can be seen in GCCA’s Community Gallery at GCCA at 101 Abney St., Greenville, SC 29611.
