South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts Faculty Exhibition
Rutledge Gallery / Rutledge Building

The South Carolina Governor's School for the Arts and Humanities (SCGSAH) provides a unique public high school education opportunity to emerging young artists in South Carolina. Winthrop has had a long standing connection to the SCGSAH through the many talented students who further their artistic education at Winthrop University. The nine-month residential high school is modeled after a master-apprentice community with an arts faculty who are all practicing artists, as well as educators in their areas of expertise including  Alice Ballard, Sharon Campbell, Katya Cohen, John Benjamin Gilliam, Axel Forrester, Joe Thompson, Carla Tucker and Paul Yanko. This exhibition showcases artwork by these talented visual arts faculty members from the SCGSAH.
