Gallery Opening Reception
Thursday, February 15
6:00-8:00pm
Join us for a Gallery Opening Reception for the Fiber Art Exhibit “Move On Up and Reach the Higher Ground”. Part of the SC State Museum Traveling Exhibits Program, this annual juried exhibit showcases works in fiber created by African American artists from throughout the US. The 11th installment features pieces by 31 artists inspired by the music of the 1970’s that sought to unify and lift the spirit of our nation, specifically songs such as Stevie Wonder’s Higher Ground and Move On Up by Curtis Mayfield. The challenge for this special exhibit was for artists to create a fiber work, such as an art quilt, doll, or wearable art piece that explores the ideas of creating a better world, journeying toward self-awareness, and ascending to a position of loving acceptance of all people.
