Crossroads Gallery Now Open!
Crossroads Gallery is the third permanent gallery space in Lake City, SC and will offer year round exhibition of the ArtFields collection. This collection is comprised of winning artwork from previous years of ArtFields, an annual art competition that started in 2013. Each year, artwork is added and a selection of the winners will rotate on an annual basis to include a variety of pieces. The gallery is a destination point where the makers and admirers of Southern art can convene.
Visit Crossroads Gallery for free Tuesday-Saturdays from 11AM-5PM to experience the magic of ArtFields throughout the year. The gallery got its name because there’s a time in seemingly every artist’s life when they are bound to come to a crossroads, the intersection where a decision must be made between continuing to pursue their passion or simply moving on to something else. This is why Lake City’s new Crossroads Gallery, a space dedicated to housing ArtFields’ previous winners, is so aptly named — it signifies the very moment each artist came to their own personal crossroads, as well as showcases the piece of work that was able to help push them confidently down the road in which they were always meant to go.
