ROCK HILL, S.C. — An exhibit at the
Museum of York County
has inspired a new showcase for Winthrop University students.
“The Art & Science of Illustration,”
opening Jan. 25 at the museum, features imaginative renderings students created in
Associate Professor David Brown’s
comparative anatomy illustration course. There will be an opening reception on Jan. 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m. at the museum. It is free and open to the public.
The students studied animals and human anatomy at the museum’s Naturalist Center and took what they observed to the drawing board—literally. The field sketches and illustrations reflect both the artistic and scientific influences found in nature, depicting deer, lions, zebras, monkeys, different types of birds and more.
Work from the following students is included in the exhibit:
• Anderson Breeland
• Anne Meyers
• Brandon McCaslin
• Caroline Riley
• Katheryne Clark
• Laura Ketcham
• Rachel Sullivan
• Sam Cabrera
• Sarah Hooper
Matt Andrews ’12
will also be a featured artist at the exhibit.
During the reception, visitors will have to chance to view the students’ work as well as explore the Naturalist Center. “Myths and Monsters in the Sky,” a special program complementing the theme of the illustrations, will be presented in the Settlemyre Planetarium. Light refreshments are also available.
The Museum of York County is located at
4621 Mt. Gallant Road in Rock Hill
