I’m very honored to be selected to be a part of “Up Your Arts” downtown Southport, NC Pole banner project to be hung in May of 2024. More details below…
We are so proud to announce the names of the artists selected to have their artwork displayed on banners in downtown Southport next year! Chosen by a three-judge panel from a group of 71 submissions to represent our “Raise Up Your Arts” pole banner project, their art is a mixture of 2D and 3D mediums — everything from paintings and photography to mosaics, pottery and fiber art to woodworking and glass, with equally varied subjects.
The two-dimensional artists are: Kristen Adkins, Chelsea Beard, Prentiss Halladay, Jeffrey Hanke, Bett Lewis, Kim Long, Tim Mauk, Nick Noble, Su Peyton, Lisa Prichard, Joy Rademacher, Jan Sowers, Chris Stitcher, Ann Thompson, and Buffy Weiss.
Hats off to these artists and compliments to all the others who participated. The judges had a difficult time deciding who to include in the final group of 24, increased from 14 this year.
The completed banners depicting their work will be unveiled at our 3rd Annual Cool & Fancy Gala on March 9 before they are hung from utility poles in Southport’s central business district next May through November.
