not only a brush, 2014
PLA, birdseye maple, paint, steel 

As the artistic approach continues to evolve in light of new technologies, materials, and processes, artists are faced with seemingly endless possibilities. Emergence will feature works from undergraduate and graduate students across the country that are experimental and thought provoking in nature, evoking notions of mystery and/or discovery or exist outside the realm of conventional studio practices. This exhibition is organized by the Winthrop University Guild of Emerging Metal Designers (GEM).
