American Landscapes: a Group BFA Exhibition
Exhibition Dates: May 1st, 2019 — May 5th, 2019
Opening Reception: May 2nd, 6:00-8:00pm
American Landscapes is comprised of six separate bodies of work for the BFA Thesis, created by students in the School of Visual Art and Design who are graduating with their Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees from the University of South Carolina in May 2019. The participating artists are:
The featured artists come from different backgrounds and work with a variety of different mediums (including painting, photography, drawing, ceramics, sculpture, and printmaking) but all of their work shares a common relation to the broader themes of environment and time. Each artist brings their own unique insight to the show’s theme of the American landscape.
Some of the artists explore the landscape more traditionally, and derive conceptual meaning from a natural sense of place. Tim Adams and Brandon Shull both make nature the subject of their works, in an attempt to reveal universal truths about the natural world and our role within it. Other artists trade the literal landscape for social and temporal ones. Benjamin Campbell and Brennan Booker both use physical location as a springboard for social commentary, highlighting the relationships between places and their social and philosophical atmospheres over time.
Join us for the opening reception on May 2nd, from 6pm – 8pm.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Friday 10am- 5pm, Sat. - Sun. 1pm - 4pm
