The Town of Hilton Head Island Office of Cultural Affairs announces the launch of The Artist’s Gallery at Town Hall, an initiative to celebrate the contributions made by Hilton Head Island’s art community to the Town. The gallery is being presented in partnership with the Arts and Cultural Council of Hilton Head and the opening is slated for the end of September in time for “Crescendo” a month long celebration of the arts on Hilton Head Island in October.
“The Artist’s Gallery will be a public forum to highlight local artists, creating a space to showcase their work and an opportunity for our town to honor the important a role played by art in our community,” said Jennifer McEwen, Director of Cultural Affairs for the Town. “We are thrilled to create this platform to say thank you to island artists and share their talents with all who walk the halls of town hall, young and old.” With the gallery set directly outside Benjamin M. Racusin Council Chambers on the administration hallway, visiting officials, employees, and citizens will experience a welcoming and diverse display of art and culture from Hilton Head Island artists.
Artists will be selected through a review process and will need to demonstrate high quality of work and show a clear artistic voice. Submissions will be accepted through the Arts and Cultural Council of Hilton Head Island and must include residence information, artist bio, headshot, and a visual representation of the piece for submission. An online application is available at hiltonheadartsdaily.org and any questions regarding the application process should be directed to Natalie Hefter at n[email protected].
