Riverworks Gallery in Greenville, SC, Offers Works by Zane Logan, Brian Nogues, and Owen Riley

The Riverworks Gallery, located at Art Crossing in Greenville, SC, is presenting the exhibit, Crossing Over, featuring photographs by three MFA candidates from the Department of Art at Clemson University, Zane Logan, Brian Nogues, and Owen Riley, on view through Apr. 29, 2010.

Greenville Technical College graduate Zane Logan conceived the exhibition. He invited fellow candidates Brian Nogues and Owen Riley to join him in his effort. His idea was to strengthen the relationship between the two educational institutions by creating a cross flow of artistic dialogue by forming this exhibit. Logan earned his AA degree at GTC, received his BFA from SCAD and is currently an MFA student at Clemson. In addition to being a student he is a member of the adjunct faculty at Greenville Technical College.

Logan uses a large format film camera and a lighting style borrowed from the Dutch painters of the 17th century to make formal portraits. By posing his subjects in a decontexturalized environment he attempts to explore the identity formation and self-concept within the subculture of skateboarding.

Brian Nogues explores the existential plight of plastic animals stripped bare of essential clues.

Owen Riley explores two disparate realities. He attempts to engage the viewer in the personal conflicts, confines and contentment of place, marriage and fatherhood in contemporary suburban life. His second group of images explores the possibility of beauty and order being contained in the assimilation of mundane objects observed by chance encounters.

Riverworks Gallery is a small student art gallery operated by the faculty and students from the Department of Visual and Performing Arts at Greenville Technical College.
