Then and Now: Collages 1979-2017
Marge Loudon Moody
Rutledge Gallery

This exhibition is selected from collages made over the past 38 years, up to the present day. Between 1985 – 2003, collage was Marge Loudon Moody’s sole medium. Her early work used ‘found’ papers. Later, she painted her own. Exotic papers from India and Thailand became part of her palette, seductive in their beauty and challenging for that reason Since graduating from art college in Scotland, Great Britain, in 1972, Moody has continued to develop her work in painting, drawing, collage and mixed-media. She describes her work broadly as being landscape-based, which emanates from her experience of place through traveling as well as from her imagination.

50th Anniversary SC Fellows Exhibition: Jim Arendt
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery

Jim Arendt’s exhibition is 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 two-dimensional works and sculptures created with denim. 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. This exhibition is supported by the South Carolina Arts Commission, South Carolina Arts Foundation and First Citizens Bank.

Almost Familiar
MFA Thesis Exhibition by Tyler Fraiser and Anastasia Netrebine
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery

The 2018 Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Thesis Exhibition features new work by artists completing their MFA graduate program in the Department of Fine Arts. 

Winthrop MFA graduates Tyler Frasier and Anastasia Netrebine have created individual bodies of work with a common theme. The show title ‘Almost Familiar’ refers to the balance between recognizable and unfamiliar. The two artists come from different backgrounds and have approached this theme of liminal space in two unique ways.

Frasier grew up amongst the working-class culture in a small mill town of South Carolina. His work is driven by his relationship with the materials and processes he uses. The resulting compositions showcase a handmade quality with industrial materials juxtaposed with domestic objects. With implications of function, the structures he builds explore metaphors for current structures within our lives that seem to be working but are not.

Netrebine was born and raised in a big European city, surrounded by culture, spending her summers in a cottage by a lake. Each of her sculptures represents a memory or a dream she has experienced. Tension is created when the lines between the two blur, through scale shift and unexpected details. Each sculpture is a vital part of the puzzle, containing a bit of familiar, suspension and mystery, mirroring the complex nature of the human experience and psyche. Parts of the sculptures are left unfinished as a reminder that this person, herself, is incomplete and that the story continues.
