Call for submissions >> Young Contemporaries 2015
Friday, March 13, 2015
Halsey Institute Galleries
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 2015 Young Contemporaries exhibition, visiting artist Lawren Alice has been chosen to select the student works. Local gallery director Carri Schwab will choose which accepted works will receive the seventeen awards and more than than $6,000 in prizes from both exhibitions.
Concurrent with Young Contemporaries 2015 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.
