Young Contemporaries 2022

March 18 - March 24

Free

Now in its 37th year, the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art and the College of Charleston Studio Art Department are proud to present Young Contemporaries 2022. The annual exhibition is a celebration of talented artists at the College of Charleston. With works selected by a nationally renowned juror, the exhibition reflects the strength and diversity of practice in the School of the Arts’ rigorous programs. Featuring a wide range of media, including paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints, the exhibition showcases the efforts of the student body at the College.

Artist Ron Bechet will serve as the juror and awards judge for Young Contemporaries 2022.
Concurrent with Young Contemporaries is the Salon des Refusés exhibition, showing in the exhibition space of the Simons Center for the Arts. The works in the Salon are chosen by Studio Art faculty. The origin of the Salon des Refusés dates to Paris in 1863, when artists who had been rejected from the official Salon caused such a protest that Emperor Napoleon III ordered another exhibition held for them. Among the painters in the original Salon des Refusés were Camille Pissaro, Henri Fantin-Latour, James M. Whistler, and Edouard Manet.

The Young Contemporaries and Salon des Refusés awards are funded by the Dean’s Excellence Fund for the College of Charleston School of the Arts.

Gallery Hours: 11:00am – 4:00pm Monday – Saturday, and until 7:00pm on Thursdays
