Central Carolina Technical College Foundation
Gallery of Art and Expression
Est. May 2017
With major support from the Central Carolina Technical College Foundation and a small grant from the Sumter County Cultural Commission*, the Central Carolina Technical College Foundation Gallery of Art and Expression will be created on the second floor of Building M500 on the Main Campus. The space will be equipped with track lighting and bench seating. Paintings and photographic works of art will hang on the walls and tables will display three-dimensional and other mediums of art. The Gallery will be open to students, faculty, and staff during the normal operating hours of the Library and the Library will manage the Gallery and events. An opening event is scheduled for May.
The Central Carolina Technical College Foundation Gallery of Art and Expression will display artwork for our digital photography event in September from current faculty, staff and students; Sumter Digital Camera members; artists in the four-county service area; and artists who have or have had an association with the college. Artwork will remain on display throughout the Fall (September – December). There will be no charge to display artwork or to attend this event. In addition, the artwork size must be limited to no greater than 48 inches in length or width and weigh no more than 50 pounds. If a piece is to hang, it should be equipped with an appropriate hanging support system.
Artists will complete a submission form and submit a picture of their artwork along with size and weight measurements in order for their piece to be considered for the exhibit. Once approved for the exhibit, artwork must be delivered to the Central Carolina Library between August 21-24 and August 28-31 within the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm. Artists must personally arrange their delivery meeting with Jason Reed, Head Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org so that he can be available to receive the artwork. Each work of art submitted for the exhibit must include a brief biography of the artist and a short description of the artwork. Abbreviated information about the artist and the artwork will be included in the event program and in other promotional materials.
*This project is partially funded by the Sumter County Cultural Commission, which receives support from the John and Susan Bennett Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC, the South Carolina Arts Commissions and the National Endowment for the Arts
