Join SECCA as we dedicate our fall season to celebrating North Carolina artists and present the North Carolina Arts Council Fellows of 2014-2015.
This exhibition captures the originality, energy and excellence of this vibrant group of eighteen artists working across media and breaking new ground. Point and Counterpoint draws on thematic currents, dynamic differences and connections in their work.
The exhibition features ten visual artists, four craft artists, two film/video artists, and two choreographers selected for the 2014-2015 awards.
About the NC Arts Council Artist Fellowship
The North Carolina Arts Council awards artist fellowships in the categories of visual art, craft, film/video, choreography, prose writing, poetry, playwriting/screenwriting, musical composition, and songwriting, alternating disciplines on a two-year cycle. Artists receive a $10,000 fellowship to support creative development and the creation of new work. Recipients are selected by panels comprised of artists and arts professionals with expertise in each discipline. Since the inception of the program in 1980, the Arts Council has made over 580 awards to North Carolina recipients, helping to nurture the state’s creative sector by investing in some of its most talented artists.
About The North Carolina Arts Council
The North Carolina Arts Council works to make North Carolina The Creative State where a robust arts industry produces a creative economy, vibrant communities, children prepared for the 21st century and lives filled with discovery and learning. The Arts Council accomplishes this in partnership with artists and arts organizations, other organizations that use the arts to make their communities stronger and North Carolinians—young and old—who enjoy and participate in the arts.
