November Issue 2000
Nina Liu and Friends in Charleston, SC, Features Works by John B. Clingempeel
Nina Liu and Friends
gallery in Charleston, SC, will present an exhibition of works
in charcoals and encaustics by Roanoke, VA, artist, John B. Clingempeel.
The exhibit will be on view from Nov. 3 through 30, 2000.
Clingempeel's work is complex but simple, dark but filled with light, permeated with symbolism and grounded in reality. Working with encaustic, a mixture of wax and pigment, he builds up thick surfaces to create paintings of remarkable beauty. His charcoal drawings focus on the effects of line, shape, and shadow and how one "reads" an image.
Clingempeel obtained his BFA from Roanoke College in Salem, VA, and he completed his MFA at Virginia Commonwealth University in 1988. He has been part of group exhibitions in New York, Georgia, Virginia, and Pennsylvania, showing his work at Artists Space, the High Museum of Arts's Georgia Pacific Center venue, the Alleghany Highlands Arts and Crafts Center, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and other sites. Clingempeel has had numerous solo exhibitions in Virginia, but this exhibition will be his first in South Carolina. His work is in the collection of the Art Museum of Western Virginia, the Longwood Fine Arts Center, and Virginia Western Community College.
