Press Release

The Gibbes Museum of Art has exciting programming coming this weekend! The museum is welcoming a new exhibition in the Art Sales Gallery by a past Visiting Artist, Adam Eddy, and is hosting a virtual presentation with artist Andrea Hazel.

New Exhibition in the Art Sales Gallery, February 19th – April 11th

The Gibbes Museum of Art will present a new exhibition of works by past visiting artist, Adam Eddy in the Ruth and Bill Baker Art Sales Gallery beginning February 19th. The exhibition, Figureground is on display and available to shop at the Gibbes, from February 19th to April 11th.

Figureground

Eddy participated in the Gibbes Visiting Artist program from Jan. 10th, 2019, through May 10th, 2019. He is an interdisciplinary artist based in Charleston, SC, whose work ranges from painting and sculpture to computer graphics and immersive technology. His work has been exhibited across the country in group and solo exhibitions. The works in this exhibition represent an exploration of the porous boundary between bodies and terrain, from the inner self to the outer world. He distorts, stretches and contradicts semantic ideas like animacy and in-animacy to create a transient experience and elicit emotion through the visual arts.

Disappearing Charleston, February 20th

Past Visiting Artist, Andrea Hazel will explore Charleston’s past and present through the lens of her series How it Was…Charleston in 1963 and through the narrative Lowcountry-landscapes depicted in the current special exhibition, Manning Williams: Reinventing Narrative Painting in this virtual presentation. Andrea Hazel was an artist in residence at the Gibbes Museum Oct. 26 – Nov. 22, 2020. How It Was…Charleston in 1963, depicts scenes of homes and communities that have been demolished and displaced in the wake of Charleston’s rapid growth and development. Manning Williams: Reinventing Narrative Painting is rooted in the history, traditions and terrain of the South Carolina Lowcountry and Williams’ highly realist approach emphasizes storytelling. The program will be broadcasted on Facebook Live @TheGibbesMuseum and is free and open to the public. For more information, click here.
