Artists for 701 Center for Contemporary Art Meeting

Calling All Visual Artists

Join Laura Spong, Jeff Donovan, David and Ellen Yaghjian and Mary Glickerson for an artists' event in support of Columbia's new 701 Center for Contemporary Art. The event will take place Sunday, September 21, from 3:00 - 6:00 PM at Laura Spong's on Pinemont Dr, Columbia, S.C. The event will be catered by Southern Way. Several 701 CCA board members will be at the event to talk about the center.

About 701 CCA: 701 will open to the public mid-October with a Grand Gala opening on October 16 and the public opening of the inaugural exhibition, Textile Tales, on October 17. The center has already welcomed its first artist in residence at the renovated 701 Whaley Street in Olympia, Columbia's historic textile mill village. 701 CCA's first resident, Beth Melton of Rock Hill, moved in September 1 and is working on a textile-based installation. Melton is part of the center's inaugural year that focuses on art and residencies that engage the legacy and materials of the textile industry, mill villages and mill workers. She will be in 701 CCA's inaugural exhibition, along with South Carolina's artists Ellen Kochansky, Phil Moody and Scotty Peek.
