Clemson Curates – Clemson University Creative Inquiry Project
Sikes Hall Visual Arts Showcase
Curator’s discussion and closing reception - Sept. 12, 3:30 – 4:30 p.m.
Clemson Curates Creative Inquiry project administered through the Lee Gallery at Clemson University is pleased to announce the opening of the Again, Then Again exhibition April 23 – September 12, 2018. The exhibit showcases recent creative research by Clemson Visual Arts alumni and current BFA and MFA students, examining the human condition through a range of media including drawing, painting, printmaking, and photography. Valerie Zimany, Interim Chair of the Department of Art, describes the exhibition as “evidence of the excellence in experiential learning provided by the Clemson Curates Creative Inquiry program, where students attain valuable professional skills in exhibition preparation and development, as well as foster the critical thinking required for curatorial practice.”
Many of the works included in the exhibition are the newest and hottest pieces being created by current MFA and BFA students, as well as Clemson Visual Arts alumni. Works in the exhibition explore the echoes of self in relation to others, self defined through technology, self manifested through objects, and self found in the places we inhabit. Co-Curator Peden Wright states “each of the works in the exhibit point in some way to the intricate connectivity of our lives and our individual responses to our surrounding environments”. Participating artists include: Master of Fine Arts students Dustin Massey, Annamarie Williams, and Caren Stansell, as well as Bachelor of Fine Arts students Hannah Gardner, Geneva Hutchinson, Sydney Smith, Zoë Rogers, and Anna Sullivan. Alumni include Amber Eckersley, MFA ’17, and Rachel Rinker, BFA ’16.
The exhibit runs April 23,–September 12 with a closing reception planned for Wednesday, September 12, 3:30-4:30pm. Sikes Hall hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. and is located on the Clemson Campus. The exhibit, curator’s discussion and reception are free and open to the public. Again, Then Again is supported by Clemson University Creative Inquiry program and Lee Gallery .
