Orangeburg County Fine Arts Center Exhibition: Observation

The Orangeburg County Fine Arts Center presents Observation —  an exhibition of drawings and paintings by five artists who work from life: Allan Anderson, Michael Cassidy, Blake Morgan, Anna Redwine, and JohnHenry Tecklenburg. In today’s world we’re numbed by images that are reproduced exponentially; we look at screens, photocopies, and magazines. We also observe real things in our daily routines — landscapes, people, objects, animals — and dismiss them without a second thought. So how do we connect with nature, find meaning in the small objects in our lives, and make sense of the movement and change in the world around us? These five artists use direct observation to commune with their subject matter, respond to the passage of time and harness the vigor of life. The opening reception is July 12th from 6 – 8 p.m., and the exhibition runs through July 29th. The reception and exhibition are free.
