by Mario Marzan

Rutledge Gallery
Rutledge Building

Mario Marzan’s exhibit uses exciting aesthetics to reflect on cultural duality in his personal history with Puerto Rico. Using “Caribbean color” theory he comments on the problematic simplification of Caribbean culture as a playground for self-indulgence. His works are inspired by his childhood growing up in Puerto Rico where the shifting landscapes of the island are thrown into relief by tides of environmental degradation, political exploitation, and economic upheaval.

Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See
by Charles Williams
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building 

Charles William’s exhibition, “Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Can See,” is inspired by recent and historical incidents of unlawful police brutality in the United States. This North Carolina artist references human situations involving a need for trust and using the embodiment of a person’s hands. The visible hands exemplify vulnerability with an unspoken request for peace and the offer of trust. Using images found online as a reference for creating the work in the exhibition, each of William’s paintings focuses on highlighting hands using oil paint on watercolor paper and combining elements of abstractions. This invites the viewer to be challenged to question the relationship between the subject matter as well as their personal subconscious view of the cyclical nature of humanity; from the reality to it's abstraction.

Works In Black and White
by Tom Stanley

Rutledge Gallery
Rutledge Building

Tom Stanley, the chair of Winthrop’s Department of Fine Arts, will be exhibiting a selection of paintings from 1993 through 2003, celebrating Stanley’s career as an artist and a leader at Winthrop University and in the community. The works are reminiscent of memories, places visited, and objects seen along a journey. Stanley’s use of a limited palette directs the audience’s attention within the paintings; but also showcases the artist’s personal interest in the graphic qualities of black and white. The exhibition is curated by Chris Clamp ‘01 of Jerald Melberg Gallery and an alum of the Department of Fine Arts.
