Paper, Metal & Coffee:  The Art of Appropriation 
works by TIM HUSSEY, DOUGLAS BOURGEOIS and WARD SCHUMAKER  
March 1-April 5, 2010

Opening Reception is March 4, 2010 (6-8PM). 
At 5:30 there will be an artist talk in the gallery
The issue of sourcing – its history and its possibilities – is expected to be the artist’ focus.

APPROPRIATIONS is an exhibition of their latest multi-media work:  collage, hand-painted books . . . and things.  They mine an extraordinary range of possibilities, from academy-pure drawing to “found” materials such as coffee, housepaint and whiskey.  This is very much in the tradition of the mid-century modernists such as Jasper Johns and Robert Rauschenberg.  But our Charleston trio are not mere copyists.  When there is quotation, it is explicit, playful and evocative.

This exhibit, though it spans almost twenty years of photography, consists predominantly of very recent work, most of it from Cuba.  In 1991, when I moved to Louisiana, I began photographing the historic architecture of the region, which was in various stages of decline, from frayed elegance to complete ruin.  In recent years I’ve expanded the scope of this work beyond Louisiana to locales that have a cultural or historical connection to Louisiana.  This has included Latin America, as well as the low country of South Carolina and Georgia.  My subjects include both architecture and the natural landscape, which are chosen for their evocation of the passage of time.  Regardless of the subjects I photograph, my images always have a common denominator.  They are languid.



SUMMER 2010

Five emerging artists will exhibit, together, their works summer 2010.  The multi-media show will feature artists across the Southeast from ages 18-30.  A panel of judges will select the work based on quality and marketability.
