More than 350 pieces were submitted for consideration in this year’s competition and 77 pieces were chosen to be displayed at the Museum. This year’s judge is Reynier Llanes (b. 1985, Pinar del Rio, Cuba).

Llanes developed his remarkable talent as a visual artist in Cuba despite government-imposed restrictions on art expression and the resulting constraints on making a living as a professional artist. In 2007, Llanes relocated to the United States. Settling in Naples, FL, he immediately immersed himself in educational opportunities to learn English and began the process of establishing his US citizenship. For two years, he worked alongside world-renowned artist Jonathan Green at Green’s studio. In 2009, he was offered the position of Artist in Residence at Jonathan Green Studios. Shortly thereafter, he moved with Green and his staff to Green’s new studio in Charleston, SC, where he currently resides and works. In 2011, Llanes exhibited his work at the Art Museum in a solo exhibition, Preserving a Cultural Heritage: The Coffee Paintings of Reynier Llanes. In addition to painting, Llanes is learning art management methods and is representing fine art created by professional artists who continue to live and work in Cuba.

The Horry-Georgetown County High Schools 13th Annual Juried Art Exhibition is generously sponsored by Carolina Radiology Associates, LLC located in Myrtle Beach, SC.
