Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, Offers Exhibitions by Sarah Ashley Borders and Wesley W. Bates
The Sandor Teszler Library Gallery at Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC, is presenting two exhibitions this Fall. Fashion designs by Sarah Ashley Borders will be on view through Nov. 25, 2003, and wood engravings by Wesley W. Bates will be on view through Dec. 19, 2003.
Borders is a student at Wofford College who has traveled widely and has also studied at Dakar, Senegal, and London, England. In Dakar she was influenced by tribal clothing and its distinctive design and style. These ethnic influences have been the main inspirations for her clothing designs. Her work is carried by retailers in several US cities, and she has exhibited her designs in Europe, but this is her first exhibition in this country.
Wesley W. Bates
The wood engravings of Wesley Bates have reached an international audience. His works are held in collections in his native Canada, the US, Great Britan, Ireland, Australia, Spain and Japan. In 1999, nine of his works were presented to China by the province of Ontario. Beyond his numerous solo and group exhibitions, his pieces have illustrated books for several major publishing houses and a collection of his engravings was published in book form, Wesley W. Bates; the Point of the Graver in 1994.
Bates will give a gallery talk on Nov. 7, at 4pm.
