Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection
Central to Their Lives: Southern Women Artists in the Johnson Collection spans the decades between the late 1890s and early 1960s, examining the particularly complex challenges Southern women artists confronted in a traditionally conservative region during a period in which women’s social, cultural, and political roles were being redefined and reinterpreted. For the very first time, this landmark exhibition will be on view in its hometown of Spartanburg, at the Rosalind Richardson Center for the Arts at Wofford College. Among the works are paintings by Wenonah Bell, Margaret Law, Josephine Couper, and Blondelle Malone, speaking to the artists’ indelible legacy in the Upstate and beyond. Central to Their Lives is open to the public exclusively on Thursdays from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., September 8th through December 19th. Admission is free, but reservations are required 24 hours in advance (call 864-597-4940 or email firstname.lastname@example.org). Masks are required for all; visit Wofford’s website for the latest campus health protocols. You can also view the digital exhibition in Wofford’s virtual gallery.
