April 16 – May 21, 2023
A diverse array of media and artistic styles fills our galleries with color, life and originality — an extraordinary opportunity for area high school art students to gain experience in the actual process of having their art exhibited in a professional setting. This year, Folly Beach-SC exhibiting fiber artist Jennifer York will judge the art. York grew up in rural Indiana, earned a BFA in Sculpture with a minor in Art History from Pratt Institute (NY) and a MFA in Fibers from Savannah College of Art and Design (GA). In 2003, she founded Jennythreads Studio in Asheville, NC, producing fine handmade apparel for women for 19 years. Following a four-month-long international trip to a dozen countries for art residencies, York relocated to Folly Beach, SC, where she retired from Jennythreads and has shifted her creative focus to fine art full-time.
