Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC, Features Faculty Exhibition

In Rock Hill, SC, the 2003-2004 Art and Design Faculty Exhibition is the fourth in a series that focuses on a smaller group of artist/educators within Winthrop University's department of art and design. Unlike a traditional faculty exhibition that highlights one or two works from each artist, this exhibition challenges each faculty member to produce and present an in-depth body of work. Given the size of the department, 23 full-time and 21 part-time faculty, there should be little problem in selecting those who will exhibit, especially this year as we near the final number of faculty who are available to show in this series. However, in many respects, Winthrop has saved the best for last. Once again, this year's exhibition presents four faculty whose approaches to art making are varied and individual aesthetic decisions are distinct. These artists' insistence to seek elements of truth and honesty is evident through their involvement in art. The exhibit will be on view Nov. 7 through Jan. 23, 2003.

This year's exhibition includes the new collage paintings of Marge Loudon Moody, the drawings of Seymour Simmons, landscape paintings by J. Michael Simpson, and the photography of Mark Hamilton whose work is a collaborative process with his wife Jennifer.

The public is invited to a series of free artist's lectures scheduled in conjunction with the exhibit, and which will be held in Rutledge Auditorium at 8pm on the following dates: Mark and Jennifer Hamilton, Nov. 11; Marge Loudon Moody, Nov. 18; Seymour Simmons, Nov. 24; and J. Michael Simpson, Dec. 4.
