Remembering Paul Martyka (1950 - 2016)

Rutledge Gallery and Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building
 
Seeds to Sow, is an exhibition celebrating long-time artist and influential Winthrop University professor, Paul Martyka (1950-2016). The work displayed in the Rutledge and Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Galleries showcases the broad spectrum of his work in printmaking, painting, and mixed media from his years as a student in Michigan until 2015. By observing a timeline of his career, the high level of artistry given to his methods and creative vision becomes evident. His use of a geometric iconography, attention to color, and continual experimentation show us his distinct visual style. In addition to the works he made independently, the exhibition will feature collaborative works with students, highlighting his attention to the development of future artists.

Almost Familiar
MFA Thesis Exhibition
by Tyler Frasier and Anastasia Netrebine
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

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 candidates Tyler Frasier and Anastasia Netrebine have created individual bodies of work with a common theme. The show title Almost Familiar refers to the tension between the recognizable and the unfamiliar. The two artists come from different background and have approached the concept of liminality in two unique ways. Frasier grew up amongst the working-class culture in a small mill town of South Carolina. The 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 implicit references to function, the structures he builds explore metaphors for current constructs within our lives that appear to be operating effectively, but in reality, are not. Netrebine was born and raised in a big European city, surrounded by culture, spending her summers at a cottage by a lake. Each of her sculptures represent 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 elements that appear to be simultaneously familiar, and mysterious. This fusion mirrors the complex nature of the human experience and psyche. Parts of her sculptures are left unfinished as a reminder that this person, herself, is incomplete, and that the story continues.

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. 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.
