Burroughs-Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC, Offers Juried Art Exhibition

The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach, SC, will present the Fifteenth Annual Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild Juried Exhibition, on view from May 2 - 23, 2013. A reception and awards ceremony will be held on May 2, from 5:30-7:30pm. Over forty artists from around the region will vie for top honors and over $2000 in cash prizes.

Up to 70 two-dimensional and three-dimensional works will be selected for jurying. Works selected for display include oil, watercolor, and mixed media paintings; photographs; wood and clay sculptures; and an array of craft items such as batik, quilts and fiber arts. With creations from artists throughout the Carolinas, the show is a perennially popular event with locals and visitors. A large percentage of the works on display will also be available for purchase.

Judge and juror for this year’s competition is Lisa Stroud of Cary, NC, who has an extensive background in writing that heavily influences her mixed media paintings. She is always looking for “the story” - whether it is hers or that of someone else. She tells these stories in paint on canvas. Her work has hung in both local and national exhibitions, and she was a 2010 finalist in The Artist’s Magazine’s annual competition. She is currently at work on a solo show and a three-person show.

Stroud will provide a descriptive tour of the exhibit at Thursday’s reception, on May 2, offering insights on how the works were selected for inclusion in the exhibit and for prizes.

Cash awards to be given include the $800 Rebecca R. Bryan Best in Show Award, as well as First, Second and Third Place awards of $500, $450 and $350 respectively. An additional 7 works will also be selected for Honorable Mentions.

Visitors to the Museum may also view Fore! Images of Golf in Art on exhibit through Sept. 15.

The Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum is a wholly nonprofit institution located across from Springmaid Pier on South Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach. Components of Museum programs are funded in part by support from the City of Myrtle Beach, the Horry County Council and the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
