Lancaster, SC, artist Bob Doster’s works will be hitting the road in the coming months, headed to locations far and near. The well-known artist’s works have been accepted for exhibit, public art showings, and competitions throughout the Carolinas, and can be seen on SCETV on Jan. 9 at 7:30pm. Known for works from monumental sculpture to home décor, Doster has spent a great part of his more than fifty years of creating working with students in schools, camps, and special arts programs. The designs created by students dot the landscape throughout the Carolinas and beyond, nearly as numerous as Doster’s own designs. For that reason, the list of locations where Doster’s works will be found may be of interest to parents and teachers who would like to be sure students have a chance to visit.
Work from “Dancer” Series
Until Jan. 31, 2014, works from Doster’s “Southern Cross” Series are at the I.P. Stanback Museum & Planetarium of South Carolina State University, Orangeburg, SC, for the “Civil Rights: Then, Now, and When?” exhibit. An 8’ sculpture from “Wind & Waves Series” has been removed from Lancaster, SC’s, Red Rose Park, headed to Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, NC, for “Contemporary South”, an exhibit that will be on view until Jan. 30, 2014. The second sculpture that has stood at Red Rose Park is on its way to Cary, NC, for a yearlong public art exhibit “Sculpture in the Landscape”. Red Rose Park will have two new works installed that will remain indefinitely. One of Doster’s works from his “Dancer” series was accepted in the national juried competition, Schwa, which recognizes excellence in craft and fine art. Pitt County Art Council at Emerge in Greenville, NC, is hosting the exhibit that ends Jan. 31, 2014.
When the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition open in Charleston, SC, on Feb. 14, 2014, Doster’s works will be found among the many artists who exhibit during this annual event. Special designs featuring SC and other wildlife will be featured for the three-day show. Beginning Mar. 1, 2014, new works by Doster will be the featured exhibit at Charleston’s Saul Alexander Gallery of the Charleston County Library, located on Calhoun Street.
While Doster is represented in galleries, museums, and universities throughout the Southeast, he will be working with Lancaster County School District students in January and February to create public art banners that are displayed on Main Street, Lancaster beginning in Mar., 2014.
Bob Doster’s Backstreet Studio, Gallery, and Garden are located in the heart of Lancaster, SC, at 217 East Gay Street, and when he is not on the road conducting student residencies or delivering to exhibitions, Doster gladly welcomes visitors. Tour groups, field trips, and adventurers will love the art collections on exhibit, the enclosed garden, and the eclectic atmosphere of the “art compound” housed in a row of 1940’s buildings that were pool halls and cafes “back in the day”.
