Arendt’s work has been exhibited internationally in numerous group and solo shows. Recently, Arendt was short-listed for The 1858 Prize for Contemporary Southern Art was awarded the $50,000 top prize at ArtFields, Best in Show at Hub-Bub Gallery’s Emerging Carolina and was included in the 701 Contemporary Center for the Arts 701 CCA Prize 2012.

Fine Arts Faculty Exhibition: Marge Loudon Moody
Rutledge Gallery
Rutledge Building

Marge Loudon Moody, a long-standing professor in Fine Art at Winthrop University, will be presenting an exhibition celebrating her career as an artist and educator for over 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 piece as she strives to capture the essential nature of these subjects through drawing, painting and collage, and abstraction.
