The Art League of Hilton Head invites you to enter the 2017 Biennale, its 25th National Juried Exhibition, held every other year across multiple media types. Over $7000 in cash prizes will be awarded. All works of art selected by jurors will be on display at the Walter Greer Gallery in the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. This state of the art gallery provides the finest exhibit space with high tourist and community visibility.

The 25th Biennale judge will be Susan Mayfield. Susan Mayfield is an award-winning artist known for her use of color and light in pastel and oils. Raised in the South Carolina Lowcountry, she earned a Fine Arts degree with honors from the College of Charleston and further studied with prominent artists from around the country. Mayfield has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions, including the Gibbes Museum in Charleston, SC, the Joyce Robins Gallery in Sante Fe, NM, the Red Piano Gallery in Hilton Head, SC, the City Art Gallery in Greenville, NC among many others. In addition to painting, Mayfield teaches art classes in her studio and leads artist workshops around the country.
