About the Exhibit

Starting December 6 and ending January 25 at Clemson’s Center for the Visual Arts – Greenville, artists in the University’s MFA program in collaboration with honors students in an undergraduate English Accelerated Composition course will exhibit works that broadly interpret and examine the multi-faceted concept of “process.” Adam Glick, Associate Director of Galerie Lelong in Manhattan, juried the exhibit. Featured artists include Ayako Abe-Miller, David Armistead, Laken Bridges, Tanna Burchinal, Lindsey Elsey, David Gerhard, Alexandra Giannelle, Ali Hammond, Nina Kawar, Adrienne Lichliter, Joel Murray, Alyssa Reiser Prince, Brent Pafford, Aubree Ross and Hilary Siber. An audio component will accompany many of the works on exhibit which features each artist talking about how their processes and concepts.

The exhibit simultaneously examines the artists’ conception of their own process and the way in which art contributes to a broader sense of how we all go about shaping and responding to the world around us. Works in the exhibit interpret the artistic process in terms of materials and the passage of time as well as in relation to mechanical, biological, and environmental processes. 

The Center for Visual Arts at Clemson University worked in collaboration with English honors composition class composed predominantly of engineering majors in the conception and execution of the exhibit. Contributing English honors students include: Matthew R. Adamson, Deepti M. Athavale, Luke V. Bauer, Kayla A. Brunelle, Holly C. Erickson, Brian C. Fitzgerald, Benjamin A. Jones, Dylan A. Pyle, William C. Tharpe, Mary K. Thorne, Peter D. Tomasic, and Kelsey S. Turner. These students collaborated with several Clemson University employees: Denise Woodward-Detrich, Lee Gallery Director; John Morgenstern, Visiting English Assistant Professor; Kathy Edwards, Research & Collection Development Librarian; Jan Lay, CCIT Technical Learning Instructor; Eugene Ellenberg, Center for Visual Arts-Greenville Coordinator; Meredith Mims McTigue, CVA/Art Department Marketing and Public Relations Director; and Nathan Newsome, CVA-Lee Gallery Intern.
