Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts

Please join us for artist’s talk at 6 pm on Thursday, June 20.

The Richardson Family Art Museum in the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts features Recent Acquisitions 2017-2019 until August 3.

The Richardson Family Art Museum has acquired objects of cultural import to better serve as a valuable educational resource that strengthens, supports, and contributes to academic research on campus in different pedagogical disciplines.  Since 2017, the museum has acquired more than 100 works of art through gifts, purchase or bequest, some of which are featured in this exhibition.  Spanning classical Mayan ceramics to the early twentieth-century portrait of a South Carolinian Congressman, this exhibition features objects of different cultural and social contexts, which were created for devotional, social, aesthetic, or practical purposes.

 

 

The Richardson Family Art Gallery features Clouds – A study of light and dark in moving form until August 31, featuring the recent works by Josh Holt.  9 charcoal drawings started out as basic studies as Holt wanted to test the level of his technique by mastering (to a degree) the ever-exchanging forms of clouds and their striking spectrum of light and dark.

The opening reception will be on Thursday, June 20, from 5 to 8 pm, with artist’s talks at 6:00 pm.
