Coker College in Hartsville, SC, Features Works by Lisa Kellner

Coker College in Hartsville, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Skin Deep, Miles Wide, featuring painting and sculpture by Lisa Kellner, on view in the Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery through Oct. 14, 2011.

“I am thrilled to be showing Skin Deep, Miles Wide at Coker College because it brings together all iterations of the ideas I pursue in my practice,” said Kellner.

“I tend to work in a spiral around certain root issues, employing the use of a multitude of mediums and processes in order to understand the concept I am working on. For me, clarity comes from exploring the relationship and tension between opposing elements,” she added.

Kellner has exhibited her work in a range of venues including: The Weatherspoon Museum (NC), The Islip Art Museum (NY), Paul Robeson Gallery at Rutgers University (NJ), The Corcoran Museum & Ellipse Art Center (Washington, DC) and The Muscarelle Museum of Art (VA). Kellner’s site-responsive installations have been shown at: The Bellevue Arts Museum (WA), The Brooklyn Arts Council (NY), Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Swing Space (NY), The Urban Institute for Contemporary Art (MI), and Transformer Gallery (Washington, DC). Her work has been reviewed in, among others, The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Sculpture Magazine.

Kellner received a bachelor’s degree at Boston University, continued her studies at the School of Visual Arts in New York and earned a master of fine arts degree from the Art Institute of Boston.

The Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery is located in the Gladys C. Fort Art Building on the Coker College campus.

Coker College upholds and defends the intellectual and artistic freedom of its faculty and students as they study and create art through which they explore the full spectrum of human experience. The college considers such pursuits central to the spirit of inquiry and thoughtful discussion, which are at the heart of a liberal arts education.
