September 30, 2017

Following an extensive search, the Board of Directors of Redux Contemporary Art Center, in Charleston, SC, today announced that Cara Leepson has been selected to become its new Executive Director. Cara will begin on December 1. Interim Executive Director Beth Kerrigan will remain full-time at Redux through Dec. 1, 2017.

Leepson brings a wealth of experience in the not-for-profit and arts sector. She has been a successful fundraiser, team builder and is committed to serving the arts community. She currently serves as Development and Operations Manager for Transformer, a nationally respected arts organization in Washington, DC. She has also worked for other arts organizations in the nation’s capital. Leepson has a Master of Arts degree in Art and Museum Studies with an emphasis in Public Programming and Contemporary Art from Georgetown University.

Leepson was clearly the right choice to become our next Executive Director. Her incredible energy, arts management experience, and fundraising talent will be a great asset as we continue promoting contemporary art and emerging artists in the Lowcountry and beyond. She will be traveling to Charleston for our 15th Anniversary Celebration and will build on the momentum of our recent growth.

Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, SC, Offers Artist Talk with Becca Barnet – Mar. 4, 2014

February 6, 2014

redux_newlogo

Redux Contemporary Art Center (Redux) in Charleston, SC, is proud to present a talk by local artist Becca Barnet on Mar. 4, 2014, at 6pm. Barnet is a talented artist and instructor, specializing in technically amazing illustrations of animal anatomy, taxidermy and installation art. Barnet’s talk is timed in conjunction with Redux’s exhibition of “Wunderkammer” by Kimberly Witham, photography and taxidermy art that contrasts the natural world against our slick, beautiful modern day aesthetic.

Barnet’s talk will focus on her own work, and through her presentation we expect connections between the two artists work will certainly present themselves. Though their primary medium is different (illustration vs photography), taxidermy, a mutual inspiration from the natural world, and the examination of man’s quest to preserve ephemeral moments unite these two artists thematically in their work.

Barnet is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design with a BFA in Illustration and studied taxidermy at the Missouri Taxidermy Institute. She has worked on many museum exhibitions, including traveling exhibitions for the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, site-specific and permanent installations, replicating textures, cleaning or completely renovating mounts, and more. She is inspired, much like Witham, by a fascination with natural history and preservation.

For the Tempest, Jason Hackenwerth is exhibiting experimental sculptures cut from plywood and are designed to fit together with a tongue-in-groove construction technique allowing the forms to be assembled like a giant puzzle and be held together by gravity. The sculptures are also grounded by large scale deep blue drawings using the linear elements of their design. Inspired by the iconic sculptures and mobiles of past masters especially Alexander Calder, each of Hackenwerth’s works are an expression in the evolving language of sculpture.

Jason Hackenwerth works have been featured in numerous group and solo exhibitions including: the Museum of Arts and Design (New York, NY); Jang Heung Art Museum (Seoul, Korea); Sçope London (London, UK); Robert Steele Gallery, Project Room (NYC ); Cecile R.

His work has also been reviewed in the New York Times and Art in America.
