Black Creek Arts Council & the Friends of Hartsville Memorial Library in Hartsville, SC, Offers Annual Photography Competition & Exhibition

The Black Creek Arts Council and the Friends of Hartsville Memorial Library in Hartsville, SC, with help from the Darlington County Photography Club, will present the exhibit, The Carolinas IV, the 4th annual community photography contest and exhibit, on view from July 14 - Aug. 26, 2011. A reception will be held on July 14, from 5:30-8pm at both locations.

Works by amateur and professional photographers of all ages from Darlington County, SC, will be on display showing imagery of “The Carolinas”, with the exclusion of the “International Eye” category, which will feature scenes from around the world.

“We’ve adjusted the criteria for the Darlington County Travelers category from last year. This category is for photos taken abroad only,” said Carolyn Atkinson, President of BCAC. “There are so many people who want to share the images from their travels. Black Creek and the Library are going to give them that opportunity.”

The mission of Black Creek Arts Council is to promote and foster the Arts in Darlington County. BCAC’s offices are housed in a state of the art 10,000 square foot facility at 116 West College Avenue in Hartsville, SC. BCAC offers a variety of programs including art classes of all styles, after-school activities, pre-school aged programs, private music lessons, and various types of gallery exhibits. BCAC also offers assistance with arts management, funding, education, and program coordination to arts and cultural organizations in Darlington County.

The purpose of the Friends of Hartsville Memorial Library is to lead in the development of programs for the extension and improvement of the library services and resources; to encourage community support for the necessary development of the library to the end that it may serve adequately the needs of the population of Hartsville. Currently, the Hartsville library is the crown jewel of branches in the county library system with its 20,000 sq. ft. facility offering books, magazines, audio books, DVDs, computers, children’s, teen and adult programming, and meeting rooms. 

The Darlington County Photography Club is a club whose focus is on fellowship between photographers of all levels in the Darlington County and surrounding areas. We meet monthly to discuss certain skills, techniques and philosophies.  Beginning photographers learn from advanced and professional photographers and advanced photographers get the opportunity to hone their skills by discussion with other like-minded people.
