Butch Anthony: Inside/Out
The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston presents an exhibition of work by Butch Anthony of Seale, Alabama, on view January 17th through February 29th. Inside/Out consists of new images, assemblages, and installations created specifically for the galleries. As a multi-faceted self-taught artist, Butch Anthony creates works that investigate and appropriate images from the American vernacular. His practice includes painting X-ray-like skeletons on top of antique portraits in elaborate, often gilded frames. Though Anthony’s work emanates from the folk art or vernacular idiom, his works are unmistakably original in concept and execution. Gallery hours are 11:00AM – 4:00PM, Monday through Saturday, with Thursday hours extended until 7:00PM.
