Romantic Spirits: Nineteenth-Century Paintings from the Johnson Collection

Jul 30, 2014 - Feb 15, 2015, Cultural|Educational|Exhibits

Spanning the years 1810-1896, this exhibition examines the core concepts of the romantic movement as it unfolded in fine art of the American South. Having originated in European literature and art, romanticism found its way to America. The same ideals found in the canvases of the Hudson River School also colored the art of painters who found their inspiration and audience in the South. The works in this exhibition are drawn from the Johnson Collection, founded by George Dean Johnson, Jr. and Susan (Susu) Phifer Johnson of Spartanburg, South Carolina. The Johnsons are passionate philanthropists committed to enhancing the educational environment and cultural vibrancy of their hometown, state and region. Their collection began as an interest in paintings by Carolina artist in 2002, and has since grown to encompass more than eight hundred objects with provenances that span the centuries and chronicle the cultural evolution of the American South.

Whitfield Lovell: Deep River

Aug 15, 2014 - Feb 01, 2015, Cultural|Educational|Exhibits

Artist Whitfield Lovell is internationally renowned for this thought-provoking portraits and signature tableaux. In the exhibition, Lovell utilizes sculpture, video, drawing, sound, and music to create an environment that fully engages the viewer’s senses and emotions. His art pays tribute to the lives of anonymous African Americans and is universal in its discussion and exploration of passage, memory, and the search for freedom. The multi-media “Deep River” installation converts a 2,500-square-foot gallery into a unique environment, which the viewer enters and experiences as a personal journey. The darkened space, which Lovell designed specifically for the Jepson Center, surrounds the viewer with projected images of a flowing river, as the sounds of chirping birds and the river’s rushing currents fill the air. The center of the gallery contains a massive mound of dirt, strewn with everyday objects seemingly abandoned by past inhabitants of the space.
