“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.

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.

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.

Remnants: A Collection of Rock Hill’s Visual Alterations

Photographs by Mara Kurtz

Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
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.
