Nina Liu and Friends in Charleston, SC, Offers Group Exhibit on Human Figure
Nina Liu and Friends in Charleston, SC, is enlivening the months of July and August with a group exhibition entitled, The Human Figure. The exhibition opens July 2 and be on view through Aug. 31, 2004. Gallery owner Nina Liu calls the exhibition a "celebration of a subject that has fascinated and challenged artists for thousands of years."
The Human Figure will feature works in two and
three dimensions by artists who address their subject in a number
of ways. Michael Farrah's award-winning, light-hearted drawings
and paintings depict people of both high and low estate with equal
humor, while Charles Fach's bronze sculptures focus on the elegance
and formality of dancers in the poses of classical ballet.
Mana Hewitt's tattooed nudes glow against a background of gold leaf, while Jennifer Howard's stylized clay figures evoke primitive fetishes. Husband and wife artists Eric and Suzanne Longo work in pastel and clay, respectively, creating bold, abstracted figures that explore the formal elements of design. Other artists whose work will appear in The Human Figure include Susan Jamison, Britta Cruz, and Lisa Brams.
