Arts Daily / Absence


Greenville Technical College’s Riverworks Gallery presents Absence, an exhibition featuring Katie Fenske and Rachel Rinker. Penske focuses on absence in her chilly, straightforward photographs of exteriors, devoid of people. Rinker’s loosely executed paintings narrate the process of absence as the warmth of the group and dissolve into individuals. Because Rinker sketches with photos, she and Fenske share the point of view of the outside observer. Fenske is a young self-taught artist with the mastery of experience. Rinker is a recent Clemson University BFA graduate. Absence is their first professional gallery exhibition. The exhibition is on view April 2 – May 5.
