Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville, SC, Features Works by Teresa Prater

The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville in Greenville, SC, will present an exhibit of works by Teresa Prater, on view from Aug. 1 - 31, 2013. A reception will be held on Aug. 2, from 6-9pm.

Prater is the Charles A. Dana Professor of Studio Art and Chair of the Department of Art and Design at Converse College in Spartanburg, SC. She received her BFA from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and her MA and MFA in painting and drawing from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque.

Prater’s drawings, paintings, photographs, and artist books have been shown nationally and in Mexico and Switzerland. She has been a fellow at the artists’ residencies Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, The Hambidge Center in Georgia, and Studio Camnitzer in Lucca, Italy. Prater is a founding member of the West Main Artists Cooperative in Spartanburg.

Prater offered the following statement:

“I have always enjoyed discovering and exploring new media. Over the past five years I have explored the encaustic wax method of painting and enjoy its ability to create ethereal visual effects through its transparency and layering process. In addition to direct painting I experiment with a variety of photography, collage, and transfer methods. My newest work explores the inclusion of oil sticks and layers of wax. Linear elements are created through incisions and scratches on the soft surface. Visually the new works are meant to be playful dream-like worlds in which birds, boats, ladders, and horses are the methods in which to move from one place to another. A constant journey.”

You’ll find an eclectic mix of works on view at the Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville by members: Dottie Blair, Laura Buxo, Gerda Bowman, Pat Cato, Dale Cochran, Robert Decker, Kathy DuBose, Pat Grills, Mel Hammonds, Edith McBee Hardaway, Chris Hartwick, Kevin Henderson, Megan Heuse, Russell Jewell, Diarmuid Kelly, John Pendarvis, David Waldrop, Erin Webb and Kathleen Wiley, as well as by consignors; John Auger, Matthew Brophy, Kathryn W. Copley and Jennifer Henderson.
