During the first Spartanburg ArtWalk of 2020, Virtues & Vices curator Kevin DeLapp, professor of moral philosophy at Converse College, will lead a curatorial conversation about TJC Gallery‘s current exhibition. The event is free and open to the public.
“Virtues & Vices” invites you to reflect, question, and explore the ways in which art can depict moral virtue and vice, and the evaluative stances that artists might take toward their subject matter. The exhibition is on view at TJC Gallery from October 25, 2019 to January 24, 2020.
Hailed by The Magazine Antiques with staging a “quiet art historical revolution” and expanding “the meaning of regional,” the Johnson Collection offers an extensive survey of artistic activity in the American South from the late eighteenth century to the present day. In May 2016, the collection received the Governor’s Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award for the Arts, South Carolina’s highest honor in the field. Located at 154 West Main Street in the heart of Spartanburg’s downtown, TJC Gallery features rotating selections from the collection’s holdings. These curated exhibitions are open to the public without charge on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 12pm to 4pm as well as the first Saturday of the month from 12pm to 4pm. In addition, TJC Gallery is pleased to participate in the city’s ArtWalk series, held on the third Thursday of each month from 5pm to 8pm.
