Old Main: A Trip Down Memory Lane, Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

Old Main: A Trip Down Memory Lane explores the visual history of Wofford College through the Main Building, known affectionately as Old Main.  Referred to as “The College” for many years, Old Main remains one of the nation’s outstanding examples of “Italianate” or “Tuscan Villa” architecture.  The cornerstone of Old Main was laid with imposing Masonic rites on July 4, 1851.  Construction finally began in the summer of 1852 under the supervision of Ephraim Clayton of Asheville, NC. Skilled African American carpenters executed uniquely beautiful woodwork, including a pulpit and pews for the chapel.  The exterior of the building today is true to the original design, but the interior has been modernized and renovated three times — in the early 1900s, in the 1960s, and in 2007.  The selected archival and photographic prints as well as works on paper provide an opportunity to take a trip down memory lane to Wofford’s most famous landmark.

Art Exhibit: Spanish Colonial Art, Richardson Family Art Museum (lower level) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description: Spanish colonialism in the Americas from the fifteenth through the nineteenth century introduced Spanish beliefs and traditions to the region, shaping new artistic traditions that evolved with the convergence of cultures. Itinerant and indigenous artists created religious paintings, sculptures, and ecclesiastical metal works in large numbers. Selected works for this exhibition are on loan from the collection of Dr. and Mrs. Francis Robicsek of Charlotte, N.C., and from the Belmont Abbey College of Belmont, N.C. The exhibition will present paintings and sculptures from the seventeenth through nineteenth centuries.

Exhibit: Mingled Terrain by Judith Kruger, Richardson Family Art Museum (upper level) (Arts and Cultural (On Campus))
Description:

The on-going work of the artist is the byproduct of a deep engagement with environment, place and the physicality and materiality of all phenomena.  Each surface in our environment embodies an inner-essence that is significant, not only in its outer-form, but also in particle substance.  All substances are ephemeral and vulnerable due to the stresses they withstand and the obstacles they confront.  Through the employ of natural matter, like pulverized earth, plants, shells and insect secretions mixed with natural binders, en lieu of pre-made art materials, the artist has the freedom to most closely dictate the work's surface on an alchemic, particle level in order to re-create or emulate specific encountered terrains.  Terrain can be defined not only as a geological place, but also a psychological space.  Terrain encompasses both land matter and physical space and exists in nature as well as the built environment.  Each individual work, although seemingly diverse, has a strict set of unified criteria.  Ultimately when it communicates as a distilled abstract visual space with an embedded history, worthy of experiencing and questioning, then it is complete.  This often takes months to achieve.  In process, the work needs to be destroyed, cut into, sanded, washed over while retaining a sense of elegance and refinement.  There is a fine line of risk involved in resolving a work embedded with alchemic experimentation that can't be too gritty or too pristine, too colorful or too dull and so on.  Reaching a point of resolved balance, ready to leave the studio, is an ongoing system.
