Furman University in Greenville, SC, Offers Works by Andy Gambrell

New abstract paintings by Furman University alumnus Andy Gambrell will be on display through Dec. 13, 2013, in the exhibit Of Sky and Earth and Air, in the Thompson Gallery of the Roe Art Building on the Furman campus.

Gambrell’s practice as an abstract painter is rooted in the American South. His mastery of color is tied to his role as a core member of South Florida’s Miami School, a contemporary painting movement extending the American traditions of color-field painting and lyrical abstraction.

Gambrell’s new body of work is the culmination of a journey that has taken him from the spiritually charged hills of South Carolina, through Miami’s contemporary art scene and a career of teaching across the South, to the establishment of a studio in Gambrell’s hometown of West Pelzer, SC.

Gambrell has lectured nationally and taught for the University of Miami, the University of North Carolina, and the Savannah College of Art and Design. He has founded and directed galleries, consulted for galleries and collectors, displayed work in more than 80 exhibitions, and mentored hundreds of young artists.

Gambrell studied painting and art history at Furman University and earned an MFA in painting from the University of Miami.
