Columbia College in Columbia, SC, Offer Works by Retired Art Educators

Columbia College in Columbia, SC, is presenting, Continuum, featuring works by SC retired art educators, as part of its annual Art Educators Invitational, on view in the Goodall Gallery, in the Spears Center for the Arts, through Feb. 15, 2014.

The exhibition will highlight 32 of the group’s retired visual arts educators from across the state whose careers have spanned K12 to college level teaching.

The Retired Art Educators group is a statewide nonprofit organization founded in 2008 through the South Carolina Art Educators Association and serves former art educators in all levels and systems of education. A burgeoning group, the mission of the SCAEA Retired Art Educators is to provide programming that allows retirees to stay connected, engaged, and active in their creative endeavors. Members and participants are practicing artists whose theme, “It is our time to make art,” defines the group’s outlook, designing programming that fosters community to support the goals of a retired educator’s creative pursuits.

Members of the SCAEA’s Retired Art Educators includes some of the state’s most notable art educators, administrators, and artists; “SCAEA believes the retired educators are a great resource of experience and artistic skills”, says SCAEA retired representative, Harriette Edmonds. And opportunities to formally exhibit their work are an important component in achieving SCAEA’s Retired Art Educators mission.

As part of an ongoing effort to support and show appreciation for South Carolina’s art educators, the Columbia College Annual Art Educational Invitational highlights individuals who actively pursues their own artistic endeavors while supporting their profound work and impact as educators.
