Tyrone Geter:  Purgatory Ain’t Nothin’ but the Blues
Through October 16, 2008
Dalton Gallery / Clinton Junior College
Rock Hill, South Carolina

Columbia, SC, artist Tyrone Geter exhibits his large scale drawing and collage pieces in Clinton College's Dalton Gallery.  Geter’s mother grew up during an age of day-to-day survival filled with the perils of discrimination and poverty.  Still, she passed her legacy of love, compassion, hope and a sense of “doing the right thing” on to her children.  Geter’s work finds it foundation in that legacy.

ACE Projects is an outgrowth of the Dalton Downtown Arts Initiative.  One goal of ACE is to expose students to the vital importance of artists' participation in civic engagement at every level.  ACE recognizes that we live in an era of a significant paradigm shift that will impact where we go, how we go, and the quality of where we live.  ACE is taking a step to refocus its goals and activities around the concept of student civic engagement via the arts.  Some of the primary activities of Artists & Civic Engagement Projects (ACE Projects) will include:

  • An emphasis on its significant partnership with Clinton College's Dalton Gallery;

  • Enhanced collaboration with downtown venues;

  • Sponsorship of student artists in the development of community-based projects downtown;

  • Support for significant visiting artists who address the idea of arts and civic engagement;

  • Advocacy for quality public art and design throughout the community; and

  • The introduction of exceptional artists to children through partnerships with local schools.

Voices of Homelessness
In collaboration with area agencies, ACE Projects at Winthrop is focusing energies on curriculum and program-based projects that will help give a voice to issues of homelessness and poverty within our community.  Please keep you eyes open in the coming weeks and months as these projects develop.

Clinton Junior College Gallery Projects are supported by Jo Sherrill Dickert,
Gay Randolph, and Robert Breakfield.  Additional support for ACE Projects has been
provided by Becca and Harry Dalton, Clinton Junior College, the
College of Visual and Performing Arts at Winthrop University,
Winthrop University Galleries, and the South Carolina Arts Commission,
which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
