“Art of Being Southern: 14×14” Call for Entry is Announced!

Juried Competition — $3,500 in Cash Awards

hdr_southern_art_01The art of being southern is practiced when we appreciate the geometry and aroma of a newly plowed field; the colors of flowers and the varied colors of the faces of our friends; the contemporary movement of dance and the rhythmic twang of bluegrass; the emotion of spirituals backed by the power of the Symphony; the earthly color of fresh greens, ripe tomatoes, and candied yams; the portraits of ancestors, young and old; the satisfying tastes of ice cold sweet tea and aged Tennessee bourbon; and the works of original art created by Southern artists.
