Echoes: Decoding the Shape of Future Recollections Exhibit

September 3-December 5, M-F

1-5 p.m.

Brooks Center for the Performing Arts

This exhibit features a survey of work exploring abstraction from the Clemson Architecture Foundation Collection showcasing a range of approaches to abstraction from figurative to landscape and from objects to architecture.  Works were selected for their use of elements and principles of design as tools to assist in the decoding of meaning and content within the work. As viewers move through the exhibition the level of abstraction intensifies requiring increased visual engagement and reflection to deduce the artists’ intent.  By actively reading the visual clues the viewer stretches their interpretation skills towards layering future recollections when engaging with abstract works of art.  Artists included in the exhibition are noted southern painters: Carl Blair, David Freeman, Robert Hunter, John O’Neil, Walter Hollis Stevens and Edward Yaghjan. Additional artists: Ben Shahn, Antoine Predock, Manley, Bill Seitz and A. Stanick.

Exhibit organized by Brooks Center for the Performing Arts and the Lee Gallery.
