Clemson University Opens New Gallery Space in Greenville, SC

Clemson University’s Center for Visual Arts - Greenville is presenting Sourcing New Mentors: Clemson Art Alumni Educating the Upstate, on view in the University’s new gallery space in Greenville, SC, through Nov. 2, 2013. A reception and gallery talk will be offered on Nov.1, beginning at 6:30pm.

Capitalizing on the Art Department’s theme for the year, Sourcing the Local this exhibit features works from Clemson art alumni who are currently artists working as educators in upstate South Carolina. Featured artists are graduates of Clemson University’s Master of Fine Arts program, each overlapping their experience by one or more exhibiting artists.

Aside from the artists working as educators in upstate SC, their creative research overlaps investigations of past and present human and environmental experiences. As an exhibition, viewers may find intersections of individual and societal engagement with natural arenas and/or spiritual consequences.
A goal of CVA-Greenville is to allow artists to create new visual dialogues with one another, therefore weaving the curatorial production into the artistic process. Over the duration of the exhibit the artists will further develop their concepts through an evolving installation involving publicly engaging elements that expand upon their initial dialogue.

Artists participating in the exhibition include: Marty Epp-Carter (’09), Instructor at the SC Governor’s School of the Arts in Greenville, SC; Michael Marks (’10), Adjunct Professor at Anderson University in Anderson, SC, and Instructor at the SC Governor’s School of the Arts; Elizabeth Snipes (’07), Assistant Professor at Lander University, Greenwood, SC; and Zane Logan (’12), Instructor at Greenville Technical College in Greenville, SC.
