Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Robin Cruz McGee

The Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, will present an exhibit of works in graphite and mixed media by Robin Cruz McGee, on view in the Guild Gallery, from Feb. 1 - 29, 2012. A reception will be held on Feb. 3, from 6-8pm.

McGee says his work revolves around his fascination with natural forces concerning the effects of time, aging, weathering and the natural changes that things go through as the result of just being in the world. “I like subjects that might be passed by the casual observer, the hidden gems that are there for anyone that might stop and take the time to look”.

Growing up in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in VA and then beachside, FL, has had an impact on McGee’s art. “I have always had an interest on how nature affects the things we do and build. New structures don’t interest me as much as older weathered objects and buildings and the things we find around us that show the effects of time”.

McGee received a BFA in Sculpture from Louisiana State University and an MFA in Metals from Cranbrook Academy of Art. He has participated in local, regional and national art shows through the years. He also taught art at the college level for 20 years in the Detroit, MI, area before moving to the Charleston area.
