McKissick Museum, located on the horseshoe at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, SC, will celebrate its “Southern Rhythms Annual Gala Art Sale” on Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, from 7-10pm. Tickets are $50 for McKissick Museum members; $60 for non-members.
“Southern Rhythms” features work by South Carolina artists and artists with ties to the Palmetto State that reflects on the music that enriches the Southern experience. Held in conjunction with “Heard at Every Turn: Traditional Music in South Carolina”, the artworks featured consider how music shapes our lives and how it affects and is inspired by different communities.
“Rhythm can be found anywhere,” says Edward Puchner, McKissick’s Curator of Exhibitons, “within a dance step, in the rumble of a train on a trestle, or within the sound of raindrops on a roof top. Featuring works by over thirty artists from across the Southeast, “Southern Rhythms” signals the beats, rhythmic patterns, or tempos of our everyday activity that together make up and enrich the world we all share.”
“Southern Rhythms” artist list includes: Jo Ann Amidon, Joseph Begnaud, Renee Bergeron, Karen Brown, Paula Brown-Steedly, Jemes Davis, Colin Dodd, Mary Ann Ehasz, Winton and Rosa Eugene, Claire Farrell, Bonnie Goldberg, Ann Hubbard, Liisa Salosaari Jasinski, Doni Jordan, Julia Knight, Alicia Leeke, Connie Lippert, Lee Malerich, Eleanor McCain, Carol Pittman, Cindy Saad, Glenn Saborosch, Edward Shmunes, Michael Story, Amanda Suber, Janet Swigler, Betsy Thorne, Wendyth Wells, Fletcher Williams III, Mike Williams, Ellen Emerson Yaghjian, and Olga Yukhno.
