ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – The work of alumna and visual artist Penny Carter '71 reflects two contrasting lifestyles: the slower Southern pace of Rock Hill, her hometown, and the bustling sprawl of New York City, her second home.

Carter's perspectives on these distinctive lifestyles will be on display during"Interior/Exterior," an exhibition of her work housed at the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St. in Rock Hill. The show, which also features work by South Carolina-based artist Alvin Staley, continues through Feb. 15. A free public exhibition will be held Jan. 22 from 6-8 p.m. at the center.

Carter has illustrated books for children and adults as well as magazines and newspapers. She has created window illustrations for New York City's Tiffany's and the Russian Tea Room, where she also designs dinnerware and packaging.

A native of South Carolina, Carter divides her time between Rock Hill and New York City. She earned a B.F.A. at the Rhode Island School of Design and her B.A. in art at Winthrop.
