The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to announce that the North Charleston City Gallery will host its first annual Redux Contemporary Art Center Studio Artists Exhibition throughout the month of October. The public is invited to attend a free reception at the gallery hosted by the participating artists on Thursday, October 4, from 5pm-7pm.
The group exhibition will feature an array of paintings, photographs, and mixed media pieces by artists currently participating in the studio program at Redux Contemporary Art Center in downtown Charleston. The program offers emerging and mid-career artists full access to professional artist studios in an effort to grow and expand the contemporary art community in the area. Xin Lu, Sarah Kalani, Camela Guevara, Savannah Rusher, and Jennifer Ervin are the studio artists participating in this inaugural exhibit. “We are excited to partner with Redux for this first annual exhibition as it’s a wonderful opportunity to expose residents and visitors of the North Area to some of the talented contemporary artists working locally,” says Anne Trabue Nelson, Arts Coordinator with the City’s Cultural Arts Department. “The diverse collection of works on display - Ervin’s intimate photography, Rusher’s nostalgic paintings, Guevara’s delicate fiber works, Kalani’s vibrant figures and landscapes, and Xin Lu’s introspective monoprints - are a wonderful representation of the artistic innovation and creativity being fostered through Redux’s studio program,” she continues.
The First Annual Redux Contemporary Art Center Studio Artists Exhibition will be on display at the North Charleston City Gallery from October 1-29, 2012. The gallery space is located in the common areas of the Charleston Area Convention Center with free parking and admission during regular Convention Center operating hours 9:00am-5:00pm, daily.
