Presbyterian College’s Elizabeth Stone Harper Gallery will host three concurrent exhibitions: Teresa Prater: The Artist Book by Teresa Prater; The Weight of the Centuries by Dawn Roe; and The BomP Drawings by the artist duo named BomP. This exhibition will be on display from Sept. 17-Nov. 24, 2015.
Prater serves as the Charles A. Dana Professor of Studio Art in the Department of Art and Design at Converse College. She has exhibited her work extensively across the U.S. The exhibition at PC features her unique sensibility and personal voice within the handmade book format and explores the artist book as an intimate means of expression. Prater received her BFA from the University of Tennessee and her MAT and MFA from the University of New Mexico.
Dawn Roe’s video installation in the exhibition explores the fleeting resonance of immediate experience and the notion of perception as memory. It draws the viewer into a meditation upon time and place in relationship to our natural surroundings. Roe received her BFA from Marylhurst University and an MFA from Illinois State University. She serves as Associate Professor of Rollins College.
The artist duo known only by the moniker BomP presents new works on paper. They draw in equal measures upon whimsy, DIY semiotics, and the modality of caprice. These inventive visuals explore both the simultaneous complexity and inaity of language and intent. BomP have individually exhibited broadly in both the U.S. and Europe.
The exhibition opens with a reception for the artist at 5-7 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 24. The public is invited. Exhibition dates are Sept. 17 – Nov. 24.
