The Loft on East Main

Artist Residency

A getaway to the town of Lake City, South Carolina for creative practitioners from around the world, for self-directed exploration of one's materials, methods, ideas, and creative vision within a supportive community.


This artist residency is an independent, self-directed experience in the small southern town of Lake City, South Carolina.  Lake City is the home of the prestigious annual art competition, Artfields. You'll reside in the heart of this bright and welcoming town of artists and art appreciators, with access to studio space. We connect you with the community for customized engagement opportunities, whether it be promoting open studio hours, hosting pop-up gallery shows, offering artist talks, teaching classes, networking with local artists, etc. The Loft on East Main is conveniently located 90 miles from Charleston and 60 miles from the beach of Pawleys Island. Brookgreen Gardens is an hour and a half drive, and Moore Farms Botanical Gardens is right in Lake City. Come see why Lake City has branded itself the 'Make Your Art’ town!
