"Give Me the Sea" Flat Out Under Pressure

Updated: Jun 20

Flat Out Under Pressure was a hit again this year. The largest amount of artists to submit, and what a beautiful site it was. This is my entry for 2024. Available.

Flat Out Under Pressure (FOUP) is a 24-hour artmaking juried event that selects eight winning artists to have their work professionally recreated on the front and back of the eight sponsored recycling bins in downtown Greenville for the following calendar year. In addition to being included in this outdoor gallery, the selected artists will also receive cash prize amounts up to $1000, including a week-long trip to Italy for two to stay in the beautiful Villa Sant’ Andrea for the first-place recipient. On Friday, June 14, 2024, from 9:00–11:00am, accepted artists will check in at the Metropolitan Arts Council to register their unmarked surface(s). Artists may register up to 5 surface(s) but only ONE work per artist may be submitted for jurying. The work must measure no more than 30 x 30 inches, including the frame. Volunteers will be present to stamp the back of the blank surface verifying that no prior marks have been made on the surface. Artists will have 24 hours to create art on their registered 2D surfaces. The next morning, Saturday, June 15, from 10:00 – 11:00am, event officials will be at MAC to accept the completed works. That afternoon, a professional juror will jury the work, and the winners will be announced that night at the reception. ----words from Greenville Metropolitan Art Council.
