South Arts 2022 Southern Prize and State Fellows

September 2nd – December 10th

The Bo Bartlett Center is once again hosting the annual South Arts exhibition in 2022 which includes nine artists residing in nine southern states. These artists are selected from a pool of more than 800 applicants by a panel of jurors to receive their respective state fellowships. The artistry on display is a testament to the strength of art in the south, presenting diverse themes, visions, and styles. South Arts is a nonprofit regional arts organization empowering artists, organizations, and communities, and increasing access to arts and culture.

In partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the State Arts Agencies of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee — with additional funding from other public and private donors such as the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation — South Arts supports artists and organizations through a rich and responsive portfolio of grants, fellowships, and programs.
