Inaugural Exhibition at CVA-Greenville: Sourcing New Mentors, September 5 - November 2, 2013

at the

 1278 Pendleton Street
The Village of West Greenville
Greenville, SC

Capitalizing on the Art Department’s theme for the year, ‘Sourcing the Local’ this exhibit features works from Clemson Art Alumni who are currently artists working as educators in upstate South Carolina. Featured artists are graduates of Clemson University’s Master of Fine Arts program, each overlapping their experience with at least one other exhibiting artist. Aside from the artists working as educators in Upstate, SC, their creative research overlaps investigations of past and present human and environmental experiences. As an exhibition, viewers may find intersections of individual and societal engagement with natural arenas and/or spiritual consequences. Over the duration of the exhibit the artists will further develop their concepts through an evolving installation involving publicly engaging elements that expand upon their initial dialogue. Other than allowing creative transparency for visitors, a goal of CVA-Greenville is to allow artists to create new visual dialogues with one another, therefore weaving the curatorial production into the artistic process.


Artists participating in the exhibition are Marty Epp-Carter (’09), Instructor at the S.C. Governor’s School of the Arts in Greenville, SC, Michael Marks (’10), Adjunct Professor at Anderson University and Instructor at the S.C. Governor’s School of the Arts in Greenville, SC, Elizabeth Snipes (’07), Assistant Professor at Lander University, Greenwood, SC and Zane Logan (’12), Instructor at Greenville Technical College.
