The Lee Gallery is proud to announce the following exhibition:


Temporal Gestalt, a group invitational exhibition featuring five nationally recognized artists: Nikki Rosato, Lee Gainer, Wanbli Hamilton Gamache, Haley Floyd and Sam Vernon.


Temporal Gestalt is an exhibition that examines the concept of narrative as a tool for constructing and understanding experience. Works selected for the exhibition explore themes of memory, place, and time. Nikki Rosato’s cut road maps draw connections between the physical structures of bodies and roads as well as the impact that place can have on our identities. Lee Gainer superimposes scenes from personal experience to examine how memories are constructed and recalled in her paintings. Sam Vernon creates photographic collages that superimpose moments from both personal and broader history in order to honor the past while revising historical memory. Haley Floyd’s photographs teeter between documentary and allegory, representing childhood memory and a projection of furture self. Wanbli Hamilton Gamache uses stop motion animation and glitch manipulation to explore the warping of form and memory as well as examine the relationship between narrative and context.


Guest Lecturer Wanbli Hamilton Gamache will be giving an artist presentation of his work at the Lee Gallery Thursday, February 1 at 6:00pm.  Hamilton Gamache will also be conducting a workshop based on his studio practice Friday, February 2nd open to Clemson University undergraduate and graduate art students. Attendees will learn how to create stop-motion animation, use glitch manipulation and multi-channel video. Please contact Mary Cooke at for more information.
