"Don't turn yourself down."
That's advice Joyce Garner gives to her fellow Kentucky artists about taking opportunities to advance and promote their work. Joyce was recently named the Kentucky State Fellow in the South Arts Southern Prize competition. Her work will be considered, along with state fellows from each of the South Arts member states, for the $25,000 Southern Prize, which will be announced in a FREE virtual ceremony on June 17.
For this episode of the podcast we talked to Joyce about winning the state fellowship, her journey to art, and what inspires her.
