The South Carolina Arts Awards

The South Carolina Arts Gala


May 13, 2015


An annual fundraiser supporting the arts education and arts development programs of the South Carolina Arts Commission


Join the South Carolina Arts Foundation as it celebrates South Carolina's arts community with celebrity artists, a fabulous art sale, delicious food and more!


Art Sale

The gala will include an art sale featuring works by some of South Carolina's finest artists. A wide range of original one-of-a-kind artworks, including functional and non-functional craft, paintings and sculpture provide many choices for both seasoned and beginning collectors.
