“Art in America on Tour” coming to Presbyterian College

The Elizabeth Stone Harper Gallery located on the Presbyterian College campus will be hosting “Art in America on Tour” Jan. 14 – Feb. 20, with a reception held at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 21.

The reception and gallery admission is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Wednesday-Saturday, noon-5 p.m.

The group exhibition is organized by Brooklyn-based artist and independent curator Julie Torres and is comprised of selected works from all 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. “Art in America” was originally exhibited as a part of the “Artist-Run” Ocean Terrace Hotel initiative during Miami Art Week in Dec. 2015

The Harper Gallery will be the first venue to host “Art in America” during its tour.

“The installation will act as a visual and a quite literal map of activity, documenting the current conversation of and about art making that is quietly taking place across the country, often among emerging, remote, and in some cases under-exhibited artists,” said Torres. “‘Art in America’ will provide an engaging survey of compelling work being made outside the metropolitan art meccas while highlighting commonality of surface, approach, material—and the rich visual language spoken in myriad dialects throughout the United States.”
