Keeping You Connected at the Intersection of Art and Industry
COROART, featuring works by Brian Rumping, Marcia Kort Buike, and Caroline Rust, and by Winthrop University visual arts students.
Approximately 60 students from Winthrop University are contending for cash prizes presented by the Coroplast Tape Corporation. While there is no specific thematic content or subject direction given, the concept of COROART is focused on experimenting with modern and technical materials. Coroplast invites the artists to play and experiment with the tape material, working to reinvent it in innovative ways.
With the assistance of Shaun Cassidy, Professor of Fine Arts at Winthrop and the Arts Council of York County, students are preparing their works of art utilizing a variety of technical adhesive tapes provided by the Coroplast Tape Corporation. All student artwork was displayed at the Coroplast Tape Corporation at 1230 Galleria Boulevard, Rock Hill, SC 29730 on Wednesday, November 15, 2017 from 5:00 – 6:30 PM, during which time, Coroplast announced the COROART Award.
The COROART Award presented by Coroplast includes 1st Prize ($1,000), 2nd Prize ($500), 3rd Prize ($250), and honorable mentions.
This marks the first time the COROART contest has happened in the United States! The COROART Award jury includes a panel of four judges: Ashley Beard (Arts Council of York County Board member, art teacher), Harriet Goode (artist, owner: Gallery 5), and Tom Stanley [artist, Winthrop University (retired). The winning student works and pieces purchased during the student exhibition at Coroplast were transported to the Center for the Arts where they will be displayed November 16 – 18, 2017, alongside works by three professional artists.
