Trillium Arts Centre in Travelers Rest, SC, Offers African-American Works
Leo Twiggs ------------------------------------- Sheri Moore-Change
The Trillium Arts Centre in Travelers Rest, SC, is presenting the exhibit, The African-American Voice, featuring works by African-American artists who are among the state's best-known and widely celebrated practitioners, on view through July 31, 2010.
Coordinated by Harriett Green, visual arts director at the South Carolina Arts Commission, the exhibition includes 26 pieces of artwork in all media from the State Art Collection. The pieces are by 19 African-American artists who range from self-taught, outsider artists like Sam Doyle, Leroy Marshall and Dan Robert Miller, to academically trained artists with established careers such as Leo Twiggs, Arthur Rose and Tarleton Blackwell.
"A number of these artists are legendary as arts educators as well. Their influences and contributions extend beyond image and object making," said Green, who sees the show as an opportunity for area residents to learn more about the contribution of African-American artists in South Carolina.
A preview of The African American Voice artwork is available at (www.southcarolinaarts.com/aavoice/gallery.shtml). For information about other activities planned in conjunction with the exhibition, visit (www.trilliumartscentre.org).
The State Art Collection is considered the most comprehensive public collection of works by contemporary South Carolina artists. Established in 1967 as one of the first programs of the South Carolina Arts Commission, the State Art Collection has grown to include 448 works in a variety of media and styles by 277 South Carolina contemporary artists. Small exhibitions featuring work from the collection are organized on a regular basis for rural and isolated areas inside and outside of the state. Works from the State Art Collection are available for loan to art museums, state agencies, and public and private organizations for the purpose of public exhibition or public display. The collection is supported in part by the South Carolina Arts Foundation and Kahn Development Company.
