Greenville Tech at RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, Offers Exhibit of Drawings

Greenville Technical College at RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC, is presenting Drawings from the Persistent, on view through Apr. 6, 2014. Receptions will be held on Mar. 7 and Apr. 4, from 6-9pm.

The exhibition is a sampling of Greenville Technical College art alumni and current art students who express their unique themes and narratives primarily through drawing. Incorporating many tools and techniques, they explore the personal with a complexity of marks, forms, images, layers and scale. The persistence, skill, and work ethic of all these artists reflect the qualities of their teacher and mentor, Linda McCune.

McCune has taught drawing and foundations to hundreds of students over the course of a couple of decades at Greenville Technical College. She is a nationally recognized artist, exhibits throughout the US and her drawings and sculptures are in numerous notable collections.

Nine current or former students were invited to hang works in Drawings from the Persistent. Kara Bender (MFA, Western Carolina University) and Carly Drew (MFA, Clemson University) are currently teaching at Greenville Tech. Rachel Borgman (BFA at the University of South Carolina) is currently a graduate student at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Mary Cooke and Kolton Miller are completing undergraduate degrees at Converse College and Clemson University, respectively. Karl Hafner, Hope Holliday, Patrick Owens, and Sharon Sanders are currently Greenville Tech students. Holliday was recently awarded Best in Show in “The VPA Annual Student Exhibition”.

RIVERWORKS Gallery is operated by and for the faculty and students of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Greenville Technical College.
