On & Off the Page Exhibit

By August 25, 2016News

I’m excited to be a part of an exhibition opening next month in Charleston, SC entitled On & Off the Page at City Gallery at Waterfront Park. Over forty artists will have work on view alongside historical texts from the Medical University of South Carolina’s Waring Historical Library. An excerpt from the gallery page:

On & Off the Page , co-curated by artists Kristen Solecki and Kris Westerson, is an exploration of how the book structure and content are similar to stage and actor, engaging reader and viewer in an imaginary or realistic experience. As book structures and prints are unpacked as functional objects and works of art, a diverse group of artists from across the Southeast explore numerous questions in On & Off the Page, including understanding the identity and cultural label of the maker through time. Are they artist, craftsperson, maker, or creative entrepreneur?

Vital Divergences (detail), one of three pieces in the exhibit.

The opening reception is on Friday, September 16 from 5 to 7 pm.

I hope you can check out what is sure to be an interesting array of work.
