Fabulon, A Center for Art and Education, in Charleston, SC, Calls for Entries for Its Exhibit “Souvenirs of Summer”

May 10, 2017

Fabulon, A Center for Art and Education, in Charleston, SC, presents our third annual end of Summer show, “Souvenirs of Summer”.

This will be the third version of a show Fabulon hosts about the significant and symbolic transitions of Summer’s end. Each year in late August, artists regroup after vacation adventures to show recent work and commemorate the new gallery season. This year we seek deep themes of transition and the passage of time. For some it is a new beginning associated with starting school, but for others it is bittersweet evidence that children are growing up and venturing out.

Come enjoy artists’ representation of nostalgia, for things for which they long, and for things they hold most dear.

Show dates: 8/14/17-10/6/17, with an Artists’ Reception Saturday, August 26, 5-8pm. Reception is free and family friendly, with plenty of parking. Fabulon – 1017 Wappoo Rd. Charleston, SC, 29407.

JUROR | MARGARET STRICKLAND
Margaret Strickland, a Charlotte, NC, based photographer, has been making portraits of family, friends, and strangers for over a decade. Born and raised in Valdosta, GA, Strickland was influenced by cultural norms of the Deep South — a foundation that would later surface as an undercurrent in her work. Her work explores concepts of gender identity and performance, expectations of the self and of society, and the confluence of these ideas in the constructed poses of intimate portraits. Her works have been shown nationally at galleries and institutions, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington, DC, and The Mint Museum Uptown, Charlotte.

The Arts Council is headquartered in downtown Rock Hill, a state-recognized cultural district.
