An Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Faculty Grant Exhibition

This exhibition will explore Moody’s “process work” or investigation, whether through drawing, painting, collage or mixed-media, which leads up to her finished, abstract paintings on canvas she calls “Worlds”.  These “Worlds” for Moody are a direct response to various places she finds herself and an attempt to describe the essential nature of each place.  Associate professor of fine arts, Marge Loudon Moody is the third recipient of the Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Faculty Grant.

Interlaced / Anne Lemanski
Rutledge Gallery / Rutledge Building
North Carolina artist Anne Lemanski presents her first solo exhibition that will include three-dimensional “skinned” forms as well as a new series of two-dimensional pieces. Lemanski recently exhibited in “Possibilities: Rising Stars of Contemporary Craft in North Carolina” at Charlotte’s Mint Museum of Craft and Design and is a former resident artist at the Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. Lemanski works in familiar forms such as a gun or a deer, created from metal armatures covered or “skinned” by stitching appropriated or hand-made materials and/or paper with artificial sinew. Lemanski’s conscious choice of form, material and “skin” convey subtle political messages to the viewer and “tackles abstract, global political issues that affect us all: urban sprawl and habitat destruction, genetically modified food, war, and women’s roles in society. ‘My work is my way of speaking about what’s happening now.’” – Verve magazine.

February 9 – March 26, 2009
La Mostra Della Borsa by Alfred Ward
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery 
Rutledge Building

Artist and professor emeritus of Winthrop’s department of fine arts, Alfred Ward presents an exhibition of handbags and accessories which find their origins in his fashion product design work in England some thirty years ago. As a consultant designer to Spink & Sons in London, and by Appointment to Her Majesty the Queen, Ward designed many presentation pieces for the Royal Air Force, the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia, Revlon of Paris and individual awards for Margo Fontaine and the Covent Garden Opera House. The desire to return to some aspect of fashion design has remained with him throughout his teaching career in American Universities. The pieces in this exhibition reflect his desire to perpetuate some ancient and modern production practices from Italy, France, and England by employing them in the contemporary design of evening bags, handbags, and fashion accessories.

Losing the Human Race:
     The Humanity of Homelessness

God City Artists
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building

Losing the Human Race is an exploratory view into the two worlds that exist in our society: one of the homeless and the other of those of us who choose to forget the people we could easily become or once were. The artwork in this show is an account of the fragile balance that many of us take for granted in the materialistic society we call America.
