Figure Drawing Summer Intensive Exhibition in the Acorn Gallery at Clemson University
A dedicated group of students has spent the last 14 days of Minimester A in the Art Department at Clemson University diligently working on their figure drawing skills. A majority of these students had little to no prior figure drawing experience.
Come see their progress at the reception on Wednesday, June 1, 2016, from 6-7pm in the Acorn Gallery in Lee Hall's first floor, building 2. The course was taught by Clemson University Art Department MFA alumna, Carly Drew.
Carly Drew holds an MFA in Arts from Clemson University, a BFA in Printmaking and Drawing from Converse College and a BA in Art History. Drew's work has been included in several group exhibitions, most recently in "The New South" at Kai Lin Art in Atlanta, GA, "Ley Lines: Connecting Media, Process, Imagery & Process Across Contemporary Drawing" at Jacksonville State University and "I See A Pattern" at the Vendue in Charleston, SC. In 2015 she received a travel stipend from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for the "Picturing the Americas" Exhibit and International Symposium. Her work received a Director's Award at the 2016 LaGrange Southeast Regional, the John Acorn Award for Studio Art from Clemson University and the Callie Stringer Rainey Award from the Anderson Arts Center. Drew resides near Tigerville, South Carolina and teaches design and drawing at Greenville Technical College.
