Call for submissions >> Young Contemporaries 2014

Friday, March 14, 2014
Halsey Institute

Each spring, current College of Charleston students are eligible to submit their recent work to the Young Contemporaries, giving them an opportunity to have their work chosen by a nationally prominent juror and exhibit in a professional gallery setting. For the 2014 Young Contemporaries exhibition, visiting artist Bill Dunlap has been chosen to select the student works.

Concurrent with Young Contemporaries 2013 will be the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the Hill Exhibition Gallery within The Marion and Wayland H. Cato Jr. Ctr. for the Arts. The origin of the “Salon des Refusés” dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in this “Salon des Refusés” were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

These annual exhibitions are jointly produced by the Halsey Institute, the Studio Art Department, and the Student Visual Arts Club at the College of Charleston School of the Arts.
