UPSTATE 8: SC WOMEN FELLOWSHIP RECIPIENTS
On June 7, 1967, Governor Robert E. McNair signed legislation that established the South Carolina Arts Commission. This historic moment signaled a new era of public support for the arts that has endured for 50 years. Clemson University Center for Visual Arts presents Upstate 8 October 2 – November 8, an exhibition showcasing the work of eight women artists from the Upstate who were direct beneficiaries of this historic legislation through the competitive fellowships awarded to them by the S.C. Arts Commission. The participating artists are Alice Ballard, Patti Brady, Diane Hopkins-Hughs, Terry Jarrard-Dimond, Ellen Kochansky, Linda Williams McCune, Jane Allen Nodine and Susan Wooten. A reception takes place October 5 from 6 – 8 p.m. A panel discussion is scheduled for October 19 from 6 -7 p.m.
