WCA - Regional News

After a brief hiatus, WCA Charleston is up-and-running.. We kicked off the fall with an environmentally-themed show, “Gaea, Goddess of the Earth.” The show ran from September 21 through October 31 at The Real Estate Studio in Charleston . Janice Rossman, a local gallery director, considered the framework of “earth personified” to curate the exhibition. Participating artists included Sandra Brett, Betsey Carter, Leigh Ann Davis, Stephanie Drawdy, Linda Elksnin, Laura Liberatore Szweda, and Lillian Trettin. Our October 20 meeting was a brainstorming session that helped us identify organization goals, including member services and outreach activities. Meetings for the remainder of the year are scheduled. continues to be a great source of information for members of the arts community. Finally, WCA Charleston joined Charleston Arts Coalition (CAC!). The goals of CAC! are to unite and sustain the greater Charleston Arts Community by acting as a forum for collaborating on projects, exchanging ideas, and hosting special events.

Charleston Arts Coalition -Creative Town Hall Recap


Thank you for attending the Creative Town Hall hosted by the Charleston Arts Coalition, in partnership with the Tate Center for Entrepreneurship at the College of Charleston. We hope you found inspiration, made new connections and gathered ideas.

If you were unable to attend, the survey results announced at the Town Hall are available on our website. There was wonderful response to the survey and so many relevant ideas, concerns, and needs were brought to light as a result.

Please take a few moments to look through the survey results and think about what and how they apply to you and how you can get involved in making the dreams and goals of the Charleston arts community a reality.

Call for entries from the Plugged Art Collective

A touring short video festival (see the prospectus)

Artists living in the American South share a particular voice that draws from a combination of unique influences and
contradictions. A recipe thick as the woods, heat, and accents combined with history, tradition, and modern technology,
creates a story that reflects a culture that is rarely captured. Plugged Art Collective invites all artists living and working in
the American South to share their artworks, observations, and experiences.

Plugged Art Collective seeks short video works that are original in their use of the medium. Video entries of all lengths up
to 5 minutes with a max of 3 videos per artist, and all genres including, but not limited to: experimental, narrative,
documentary, animation. All video works must have been completed no earlier than 2007. “Hot Sauce & Magnolias”
will tour at various venues for 2 years. Screening begins in Spring 2010. All video entries must be submitted in data
format, NTSC (NO AUTO PLAY or DVD MENUS). Only DVDs can be accommodated.

ENTRY FEE: There is NO FEE for submission.

DEADLINE: Wednesday, September 30th

See the Pluged Art Collective's website for more information
