The Hartsville Museum’s W. Reaves McCall Gallery and Conference Room will host two art exhibits during the month of March. The first exhibit features works from students in the Governor’s School for Science and Math’s Art in the Interim Program. The second exhibit is the South Carolina State Museum’s 2018 Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Traveling Exhibition. Both exhibits will be on display at The Hartsville Museum.
The Governor’s School for Science and Math’s Art in the Interim Program will feature works from students as they explored traditional and contemporary art techniques and processes using a variety of materials while creating meaningful 2D and 3D works of art. This dynamic visual arts course was led by Visual Arts Coordinator, Patz Fowle and Artist in Residence, Mike Fowle. All art products created during this program involved the students using some type of heat. The exhibit will feature hand built glazed ceramics, watercolor batik, and biomorphic sculptures utilizing upcycled, post-consumer plastics. This exhibit will be at the Hartsville Museum from March 1st-April 15th.
The South Carolina State Museum’s Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Traveling Exhibition features 17 artworks from fine craft artists that participated in the annual South Carolina Palmetto Hands Juried Fine Craft Competition and Exhibition. The works of art come from various categories including: clay, fiber, metal, wood, and 3D mixed media. This exhibit is a part of a traveling exhibition program offered through the South Carolina State Museum. It gives galleries, museums, and art centers across South Carolina the opportunity to request the exhibit to tour their facilities, thus providing additional exposure for the selected artists. This exhibit will be at the Hartsville Museum from March 1st-28th.
