Grant of $6,000 to a Charleston County, South Carolina visual artist for the creation of new work that represents an aspect of the Lowcountry’s unique life, culture, or environment. The financial award is intended to support the artist during creation of a work of art which will then be the personal property of the artist, to keep, show or sell at his or her discretion.

The proposed work of art may be done in oils, acrylics, watercolors, pastels, drawing, or a combination of those media, or it may be a work of three-dimensional fine art sculpture; “fine art” is used here to exclude crafts and installation art from 3-D works of sculpture.

The winning applicant will propose a subject, style or approach that is innovative, not already available in galleries or studios. The winner will be determined based on a written application and on samples of past work, both of which will be considered by members of a Review Panel.

The primary criteria are artistic talent, seriousness of purpose, a clear vision for the work to be produced, and the appeal of that vision. The applicant’s apparent need for the Award money will be a factor in the selection process.

Term of Contract:

The applicant must commit to completing the new work of art in a period of three months’ time or less, by September 2016.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

-Applicants must be citizens or residents of Charleston County in South Carolina.

-Applicants must be at least fifteen years of age.

-Applicants must be able to demonstrate talent, based on submission of images of their work.

-In submitting images of past work, the applicant must demonstrate past interest in creating art reflective of “the look and feel of the Lowcountry”.

-Through a written application, applicants must be able to communicate a vision for the work of art to be produced.

-Applicants must be able to demonstrate some degree of financial need for the award, which is intended to provide a living stipend for the winner as the work of art is being created.

-The Award is not intended for an artist already popular with the general public. For an artist whose work is not generally known locally, it is intended to give the time and the money to produce art and to become better known to the general public.

-There are no requirements related to public shows or past awards, so as not to discourage new or under-recognized artists from applying.

Pre-Application Information:

All applications must be received by 5:00 PM on March 25, 2016.

The winner will be announced in early May 2016.
