Rutledge Building

This interdisciplinary and multi-media exhibition contains work from the 2016 National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) summer seminar for university educators hosted at UNC Asheville. Lead by Winthrop University Fine Arts Professors Laura Gardner and Laura Dufresne, the 16 participants researched evolving forms of note-taking and remembering throughout history through speakers and book-making workshops, as well as archival and museum collection research. The exhibition highlights the diverse, interdisciplinary responses to the two-week seminar, as seen through the participants' art, creative writing, book forms and teaching.

Then and Now: Collages 1979-2017
by Marge Loudon Moody

Rutledge Gallery
Rutledge Building

Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 2018 from 6:30-8 p.m.

Marge Loudon Moody, a long-standing professor in fine art at Winthrop University, will present an exhibition celebrating her career as an artist and educator for more than 30 years. Moody's artwork emanates from her experience of different places under one large, overall theme entitled "Other Worlds." While the work differs from series to series, each is connected by common threads that reflect her experience of these particular places, or "worlds," sometimes directly, often subconsciously. Line, shape, color and space are intuitively manipulated until they find their exact place in the pieces as she strives to capture the essential nature of these subjects through drawing, painting, collage and abstraction.

Monday, Dec. 11 - Friday, March 9, 2018
50th Anniversary South Carolina Fellows Exhibition: Jim Arendt
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

Opening Reception: Friday, January 26, 2018 from 6:30-8 p.m.

Jim Arendt's exhibition is a part of the South Carolina Arts Commission's 50th Anniversary celebration that includes 15 solo and group exhibitions taking place throughout South Carolina of current and past Visual Artist Fellowship recipients. Arendt received his fellowship in 2014. His work explores the shifting paradigms of labor and place through narrative figure painting, drawing, prints, fabric, and sculpture. Influenced by the radical reshaping of the rural and industrial landscapes in which he was raised, he investigates how individual lives are affected by transitions in economic structures. Arendt's work has been exhibited internationally in numerous group and solo shows. Arendt received his B.F.A. from Kendall College of Art and Design and his M.F.A. from the University of South Carolina. He is currently an assistant professor of art and the director of the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery at Coastal Carolina University.
