Group exhibition on display throughout October
The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to announce that works by members of the Redux Artists Collective will be on display at Park Circle Gallery from October 4-28, 2023. A free reception hosted by the artists will be held at the gallery on Friday, October 6, from 5:00-7:00pm. The public is invited to attend.
Metamorphosis is defined as a striking alteration in physical form, structure, or substance. All art involves metamorphosis – materials take on meanings, objects merge with subjects, and forms transform into new shapes. In their group exhibition, titled Metamorphosis, the Redux Artists Collective presents a collection of works in a variety of media that reflect the kinds of transformations that lie at the heart of art making. This collection, ranging from painting and sculpture to photography and collage, will be a conscious examination of the acts of metamorphosis that underlie the artists’ creative practices.
The Redux Artists Collective (RAC) is a group of contemporary artists who rent studio spaces at Redux Contemporary Art Center in downtown Charleston, SC. Each artist works in different media, including photography, painting, collage, assemblage, metalsmithing, sculpture, and mixed media art. The mission of RAC is to foster community and build relationships within the studio artists of Redux. The group aims to bridge the gap between the Redux board, staff, and the greater Charleston community through their direct communication, marketing, and programming. Members of RAC participating in Metamorphosis include Carson Carroll, Anna Chen, Shelby Corso, Rebecca Dew, Taylor Faulkner, Kris Hanson, R. Hopkins, Hale Horstman, Kirsten Hoving, Cindy Jesup, Nick Kawczynski, Liz Lantz, Shannon Mayo, Daisy McClellan, Elise Moore, Christine Patterson, Jenifer Padilla, Nancy Perry, Lauren Ridenour, Kate Ritchie, Lauren Sloan, Jillian Thorvaldson, and Susan Vitali.
The Park Circle Gallery is located at 4820 Jenkins Avenue in North Charleston.
