Lander University in Greenwood, SC, Features Works by Todd Stewart

Lander University in Greenwood, SC, will present Conduit, featuring a sculptural installation and performance by Todd Stewart, on view in the Lander University Gallery, located in the Josephine B. Abney Cultural Center, from Sept. 2 through Oct. 4, 2013. A closing reception will be held on Oct. 3, from 5-7pm. The artist will lead an interactive performance piece during the reception and viewers are invited to participate.

Stewart will transform the Lander University Gallery into a sculptural emotional gymnasium filled with interactive sculptures that invite the viewer to take part in the exhibition. Stewart’s large sculptures stimulate the senses providing a visual, tactile and emotional experience.

For this exhibit, Stewart proposes that “By creating functional devices designed for interaction, passive viewing is transformed into an active, full body experience. The experiences that these sculptures initiate explore the mechanics of how sensation is transformed into feelings.”

Stewart holds a BFA from Winthrop University and an MFA from Clemson University. He is an award winning artist exhibiting throughout the Southeast region and was recently featured in the 1st Annual ArtFields Exhibit in Lake City, SC. Stewart’s colorful and textural sculptures use humor to actively engage the viewer. This installation of touchable, interactive work will not be your ordinary gallery experience. The exhibit is free and open to the public.
