Art Exhibit: From Botticelli to Tintoretto, Richardson Family Art Museum
From Botticelli to Tintoretto: Italian Renaissance Art from the Tobey and Bob Jones Collection. (Gallery talk by Dr. Nelda Damiano, Georgia Museum of art on March 25 at 7 p.m.)

This exhibition charts the dizzying speed with which Italian Renaissance art developed between the late 15th and late 16th century. Mixtures of Christian subjects and humanist imagery drawn from antiquity are what one would expect from Renaissance art during this era. However, the style shifts rapidly, and artistic daring encouraged by artists, their patrons, and audiences manifest spatial and figural complexities well-represented in these works, as well as varieties in their format and media. 

Thanks to generous loans from David and Julie Tobey in New York and the Bob Jones University Museum and Gallery in Greenville, Art History students in Karen Goodchild’s Renaissance Art class will undertake research on actual Renaissance works, and their semester-long projects will be presented in late April and early May.  

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Art Exhibit: Gummy Labyrinth, Richardson Family Art Gallery
Exhibit: Gummy Labyrinth by Micah Tiffin. (Artist talk: Feb. 20, 7 p.m.) 

Gummy Labyrinth features works by Micah Tiffin, senior in Studio Art and Humanities and a 2019 Whetsell Memorial Fellowship recipient. 

Artist’s statement: I remember writing the same sentence hundreds of times over and over on paper. Ironically, I don’t remember what the sentence said. It was probably three lines long, about something I did or said that I shouldn’t have said or done. I was implanted on a park bench, facing away from where the others dug holes to China and chased one another up the slide. Luckily, by now I had learned how to escape into my own space. I daydreamed about playing games and my stuffed animal penguins that waited for me at home. I became an artist early, creating spaces that served as distractions. My installation is an ode to this temporary refuge. My paintings and sculptures exemplify the struggle of reentering the “real world.”

1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Exhibit: Quilted Stories, Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts
This exhibition features quilts of Wofford faculty and staff, displaying storytelling and shared cultural connections. Quilts are curated by Laurel Horton, an internationally acclaimed quilt researcher, author, editor, and lecturer. A catalog of the quilts will also feature each quilt and its story.

This exhibition is generously sponsored by the Wofford Cultural Affairs Committee and South Carolina Humanities, a not-for-profit organization; inspiring, engaging and enriching South Carolinians with programs on literature, history, culture and heritage.

Opening reception: March 19 from 6 - 8 p.m., featuring gallery walk with Humanities Scholar Laurel Horton at 7 p.m.
