The Department of Art Faculty Exhibition, Artists Teaching : Teaching Artists, highlights artwork by Clemson University’s artist-educators. Each iteration symbolically connects our distinctive faculty research and experiences, investigating complementary elements of place, media, technology and visual language. We hold common ground in both our verdant Upstate South Carolina location and our collaborative teaching values for all undergraduate and graduate students within our degree programs. For us, this exhibition is an opportunity to share our most current creative research with our students, our fellow University colleagues and the greater
community. Our work represents a multiplicity in communication, visual modes of practice and systems of
materiality. As artists, we voice a broad range of perspectives and are willing to take risks to establish meaningful
dialogue on contemporary art-making in the 21st century.


The Department of Art’s award-winning faculty welcomes this occasion to exhibit at the Lee Gallery on Clemson University’s main campus. We are grateful to our supporters from across the University and state who helped make this exhibition possible — forward-looking friends who inspire a legacy of creativity. We appreciate our partners who value the arts as cultural capital which generates thoughtful discourse in response to the opportunities and challenges of our present day.


Resources from the University over a faculty member’s career provide a unique autonomy for experimental,
creative research that is unhindered and profound. Our location within a comprehensive, public university also
fosters collaboration with other disciplines. Such relationships allow us, and our students to locate important
professional connections and new sites of artistic inquiry.


As faculty, we value our role in guiding the next generation of Clemson artists, thinkers, and makers. This exhibition, Artists Teaching : Teaching Artists, provides a glimpse into the active practice of our studio art faculty. We invite your engagement as we build a community of critical inquiry.
