Exhibit will be open First Friday, March 7, 6-9pm and runs until April 6, 2014 
[Closed March 8-9 and March 15-24]

Drawings from the Persistent is a sampling of Greenville Technical College's Visual and Performing Arts alumni and current students who express their unique themes and narratives primarily through drawing. Incorporating many tools and techniques, they explore the personal with a complexity of marks, forms, images, layers, and scale. The persistence, skill, and work ethic of all these artists reflect the qualities of their teacher and mentor, Linda McCune. Linda has taught drawing and foundations to hundreds of students over the course of a couple of decades at Greenville Technical College. McCune, herself a nationally recognized artist, exhibits throughout the US, and her drawings and sculptures are in numerous notable collections.

Nine alumni and current students were invited to hang works inDrawings from the Persistent. Kara Bender (MFA, Western Carolina University) and Carly Drew (MFA, Clemson University) are currently teaching at Greenville Tech. Rachel Borgman (BFA, University of South Carolina) is currently a graduate student at the Maryland Institute College of Art. Mary Cooke (Converse College) and Kolton Miller (Clemson University) are completing undergraduate degrees. Karl Hafner, Hope Holliday, Patrick Owens, and Sharon Sanders are currently participating in the Visual Arts program at Greenville Tech.
