Clemson University Associate Professor of Art History, Dr. Andrea Feeser, Interviewed on WICN's Inquiry with Mark Lynch

Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 9:30am

Link to POD cast:

In colonial South Carolina, the growing of indigo and the making of the beautiful blue dye from that plant was an important cash crop that England depended on. But it was a labor-intensive agriculture that used not only  slave labor but also depended on the land and sometimes the slave labor of Native Americans. Tune in tonight and learn about the political and material cultural history of indigo, a color that touched the lives of the rich and wealthy in America and Europe as well as slaves and Native Americans. We talk with ANDREA FEESER, Associate Professor of Art and Architectural History at Clemson University. Her new book is RED, WHITE, AND BLACK MAKE BLUE: INDIGO IN THE FABRIC OF COLONIAL SOUTH CAROLINA.

"Like a Tom Waits Song" National Juried Exhibition


Deadline: February 23, 2014

Step right up! With a handful of glitter and a roaring blast through a dented megaphone, Arc Gallery announces a call for art based on the inherently visual musical world of Mr. Tom Waits.   "Like a Tom Waits Song" will shine a bright dingy yellow spotlight on artwork in all media and all genres, from figurative crooked scarecrows wearing black bowler hats, to narrative environments inhabited by surreal Waitsian characters, to the abstract, the conceptual, the absurd and the down-right bizarre and everything in-between.

Waits has said,  "Songs are really just very interesting things to be doing with the air."  The atmosphere he has created over the years is a dense tapestry of visual images and narratives that create a palpable mood and feeling about the mysterious places that we call home and the places we are going and what we have seen.

It is often said that an image is worth a thousand words.  But somehow, Tom Waits with his lyrics, utilizing only a few dozen words, conjures up intense images in our imagination that visual artists are hard pressed to match.  On top of his words, he layers familiar and strange sounds and melodies that complete the images that penetrate our minds and hearts.
- for song lyrics, see:

This open call is for all artists who have found themselves deeply moved, enraptured, bemused or inspired by Tom Waits. Has his music ever transported you to a dusty desert town or an abandoned train yard or a glowing, gritty neon rainy city street filled with steam? Listening to his music do you come away from the experience with a flash of inspiration embodying his lyrics? Like Tom Waits, do you tell tall tales and spin yarns with your work?  If so, we want to see it!

Sculpture, painting, drawing, photo, printmaking, ceramics, assemblage, collage, mixed media, fiber art, artist book. This exhibition cannot accept jewelry, video, film, performance art, installation and works requiring an external electrical source.
