Lander University in Greenwood, SC, Features Works by Jennifer Stoneking-Stewart & Doug McAbee
Lander University in Greenwood, SC, will present
the exhibit, Mason's Bones, featuring the work of Jennifer
Stoneking-Stewart and Doug McAbee, on view in the
Monsanto Gallery, Feb. 14 - Mar. 11, 2011.
Jennifer Stoneking Stewart received a BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville and an MFA from Clemson University in 2007, both with an emphasis in Printmaking. Before coming to Lander University as Assistant Professor of Art, she served as an Instructor of Art at Belmont University from 2009-2010. She states that her current work is a response to the surrounding environment, drawing inspiration from the Appalachian landscape and rapidly occurring changes, such as progression of time, death, growth, and decay. Finding this uncontrollable events as upsetting, she uses her process and work as an attempt to control these occurrences, even if only temporarily.
Doug McAbee received his MFA from Winthrop University with an emphasis in Sculpture. Before coming to Lander University as Assistant Professor of Art, he worked as a graphic designer for 16 years and served as adjunct faculty at Winthrop University for 8 years. As a response to the world around him, McAbee's work consists of bold colors, shiny surfaces and whimsical imagery. He states that even though his artwork may often dip into serious or sinister subject matter, he always seeks to do so with a sense of humor, a shiny color and a spoonful of sugar.
