March Issue 2004
Francis Marion University
in Florence, SC, Features Works by Kichung Lizee and Zenobia Washngton
When East Meets West, featuring Eastern calligraphy by Kichung Lizee, and The Women of Inspiration, featuring dolls by Zenobia Washington, will be on display in the Hyman Fine Arts Center gallerie at Francis Marion University as part of the university's Art Gallery Series, through Apr. 8, 2004.
Lizee's exhibit is a unique blend of Eastern calligraphy and Western thematic material. The energy and pulse of calligraphy offer insight into many aspects of the living world. In Lizee's work, the living spirit of this Eastern art form comes together with Western forms such as Abstract Expressionism. This fusion aims for a more universal expression than may be possible through working in the individual traditions.
Lizee recently traveled and studied in Korea. She was a featured artist at the San Francisco Asian Art Museum in Oct., 2003. She currently lives in Butler, TN.
Zenobia Washington currently creates her art in Georgetown, SC. She is an artist-in-residence with the South Carolina Arts Commission and teaches a quarterly doll-making workshop at Art Works in Pawleys Island, SC.
The "amazing women" in her family inspired Washington to create her dolls. Initially, Washington's dolls helped her grieve the loss of her brother. Now, they have become a celebration of life. Each one is named, Bold Woman, The Healer, and Finder of Lost Souls, to represent the spirit she senses in a completed work.
