Works on Paper - Warning, by Mary Robinson

November 7 - December 20, T-Sa
10:30 a.m. - 5:30 p.m. T-F, 10 a.m. - 2 p.m.  Sa
Center for Visual Arts – Greenville (CVA-G), 1278 Pendleton Street, Greenville, S.C.

The Clemson University Center for Visual Arts – Greenville (CVA-G) is hosting the new exhibit, “Works of Paper,” Nov. 7 -Dec. 20 with a reception on Friday, Nov. 7, 6-9 p.m. that coincides with the widely popular First Fridays in the Village of West Greenville as well as the 13th Annual Open Studios operated by the Metropolitan Arts Council (MAC).

The exhibition title which is a play on words, from the time-honored term “works on paper,” features two and three-dimensional artwork.  The curated show bring three artist together with roots in S.C. and the Upstate  focuses on the reflexive identity of paper in the art-making process, and pays homage to drawing and printmaking of various scales.  Miranda Pfeiffer, who is originally from N.C. and Upstate S.C. and now resides in Los Angeles, C.A. is returning “home” to show her large-scale drawings, many of which examine the multiple forms that paper can assume.  Mary Robinson, a printmaker and professor at the University of South Carolina, is displaying both drawings and prints that examine organic form and the multiple interactions that materials can have with paper. Elizabeth Shanks, a local artist based at ArtBomb on Pendleton Street, is showing her three-dimensional paper cut-outs.  Shank’s work lends

a sculptural element to a material otherwise associated with two-dimensional media. Her work is integrated within the space to lend an element of formal diversity.

Throughout the duration of the exhibition, the artists will be hosting workshops both at the CVA-G and at the spaces of community partners in order to share their process with Clemson students, faculty, alumni, local artists, children within the community, and the general public.  The dates and times of these workshops are to be announced at a later date.

The Center for Visual Arts-Greenville (CVA-G) is open Tuesday-Friday, 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m., First Fridays from 10:30 a.m. – 9 p.m., and most Saturdays from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.  It is located at 1278 Pendleton Street, Clemson, SC 29611 in the Village of West Greenville, on the corner of Lois Ave and Pendleton St. in the bottom floor of the Village Studios building. For questions about this exhibit or any future Center for Visual Arts-Greenville exhibits, contact Program Coordinator, Kara Blanken at kblank2@@clemson.edu.
