ArtFields®

  • ArtFields

The fields of Lake City, South Carolina once flourished with vast acres of beans, lush strawberries, tall tobacco stalks. The town flourished too – bustling with energy and enterprise, creativity and art, music, theater, and kindness. When the market declined, as it did in thousands of small farming towns across the South – the town shifted. Fields went fallow; many moved on; businesses closed; neighbors who remained, hunkered down. It wasn't until a native daughter enlisted the help of a passionate group of locals. Together they went door‐to‐door and store-to‐store with a mission: to reignite Lake City’s energy and economy – and to forever change the lives of Southern artists - through art. Like a seed taking root, art found its way back to Lake City. Furniture stores and barbershops became galleries. Artists and art lovers made their way to Lake City to celebrate art, to reward its creation and creators, to honor its ability to transform an economy, a community, and the people who call it home. ArtFields is living, breathing proof of the power of art. A reminder that its beauty and soul and energy live within each of us – even in the harshest of seasons. We believe art is a field that endures– through flourish and fallow.
