Between the Springmaid Sheets

Rutledge Gallery

Between the Springmaid Sheets examines gender and social standards through the visual culture of the 1940s and 1950s. 
Colonel Elliott White Springs, owner of the South Carolina Springs Mills textile company, masterminded innovative and provocative ad campaigns combining suggestive imagery with clever texts and double entendre to establish the successful brand - “Springmaid” solidifying his legacy in advertising history.  The original advertising maquettes from well known illustrators such as Russell Patterson, E. Simms Campbell, Fritz Willis, and James Montgomery Flagg are on view along with the advertisements as seen in Esquire, Colliers and Look magazines.

 

September 10 – October 26, 2012

Remnants: A Collection of
Rock Hill’s Visual Alterations

Photographs by Mara Kurtz

Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building
Remnants: is an exhibition of photographs
by New York designer and photographer, Mara Kurtz, which captures a
visual language of Rock Hill during
the early 1970’s prior to its
participation in a federally funded “beautification program.”
The photographs demonstrate the
evolving industrial impact on the
community’s urban landscape
underscoring the ability buildings,
signage and structures have to give
meaning to space and establish its
identity. As change occurs, part of a
former existence remains; leaving
behind remnants of these alterations.
Kurtz’s photographs capture the
remnants and impact on Rock Hill’s
urban landscape.

contemporary ideas regarding textiles and

"SelvEDGE”
Nava Lubelski
Rutledge Gallery
Lubelski embroiders on used fabric over stains and rips, contrasting the accidental with the meticulous, constructing narrative from randomness and mistake. Her hand-stitched designs combine traditional sewing techniques and abstract painting which remove the object from functional purpose and elevate to art.

November 12 - January 18, 2013
Factory Floor
Libby O’Bryan
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
O’Bryan’s artwork is informed by her previous career in apparel production and current work as an “industrial seamstress.”  She explores the relationship between maker, machine and consumer. The environments she creates act outside the commodity driven marketplace as a means for contemplation about everyday decisions and cultural norms.

Art Education Student – Sarah Walker
School - Sullivan Middle School, Rock Hill, SC
Mentor Teacher - Ms. Susan Barnette

The goal of the project above was to focus
on the process of drawing and collage
creating works of art that are finished yet unfinished with the ability to grow.
The students watched a video of the
artistic process of illustrator Eric Carle
(
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
) a
nd then
made collages based on his process. 
The students painted paper, chose sill-lifes,
and collaged the paper choosing areas
of their pieces to emphasize.
This project was also influenced by the work
of Jean Auguste Dominque Ingres whose drawings looked unfinished, but he chose
certain areas of  his pieces to emphasize.
