The city of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with Redux Contemporary Art Center, is posting a Call for Entries for the annual Piccolo Spoleto Juried Art Exhibition, which will be presented at City Gallery at Waterfront Park, 34 Prioleau St., May 23-June 8.

Deadline for entries is April 21. The entry fee is $20 for up to five pieces and is nonrefundable. Applicants may enter online at https://reduxstudios.slideroom.com/#/login/program/20614.

Cash prizes will be awarded for Best in Show ($500) and in each category: painting, printmaking, photography, drawing, and sculpture ($100 each). Applicants must have been South Carolina residents for the past 12 months.

The exhibition will feature those artworks receiving prizes, alongside a limited selection of pieces identified in the jury process as worthy of honorable mention or display.

Selected artwork must be delivered to the City Gallery on May 16, ready to hang. The City Gallery will direct all sales inquiries to the artist.

This year's juror is local painter Linda Fantuzzo. She served on the panel for the S.C. State Arts Commission Acquisitions Committee for two years, and served on the advisory board for The Halsey Institute and the steering committee for the Trident Region Arts & Culture Plan.

Linda has been a juror for the City Gallery at Waterfront Park, the Charleston Artists League and the Charleston County Library.
