Lander University in Greenwood, SC, Offers Works by Denise Waldrep & Carey Smith

Lander University in Greenwood, SC, will present Magnanimous Body Talk, a joint exhibition by artists Denise Waldrep and Carey Smith, on view in the Lander University Gallery, located in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center, from Oct. 14 through Nov. 19, 2013. A reception and gallery talk will be held on Nov. 19, from 5-7pm.

Denise Waldrep earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree and her interdisciplinary degree in Natural Science Illustration from the University of Georgia. She exhibits her work nationally and is an adjunct instructor at Lander University.

Carey Smith earned his Master of Arts in Teaching degree from Lander University and regularly exhibits paintings and prints throughout the Southeast. He also composes and publishes musical compositions and poetry. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA.

Waldrep and Smith also happen to be mother and son. Commenting on the exhibit, Waldrep stated, “Carey and I are excited to have this mother/son show at Lander. Our work goes well together because of our use of lines to convey energy and the movement of shapes and mass. In both his work and mine, as in all art, there is some level of abstraction. Carey takes the abstraction process to the point of having only shape, line and color as subject matter while my work remains recognizably figurative. My figures live in a Newtonian world. Carey’s shapes function in a quantum field. The combination of images is dynamic.”
