The Grid Comes Full Circle Exhibit Opens at SC State’s Fine Arts Center Gallery

Friday, February 18, 2011

SC State University’s Fine Arts Center Gallery is pleased to host an exhibition by artist and educator, Dr. Terry K. Hunter, which will be on display through Thursday, March 31, 2011. This exhibition is presented in conjunction with “The Grid Turns the Corner: A Mid-Career Retrospective” of drawings and prints by Hunter, which will be on display simultaneously in the I.P. Stanback Museum and Planetarium at SC State.


“The Grid Comes Full Circle” is a collection of works by students of Hunter that span over 30 years of creative activity. The earliest works included in “The Grid Comes Full Circle” date back to 1978 and features examples from Hunter’s students at Felton Laboratory School, as well as works by Hunter’s students from both SC State University and Claflin University.  Also included are works from students taught by Hunter at the South Carolina Governor’s School for the Arts in Greenville, S.C.  The most recent works will be displayed at the Fine Arts Center Gallery on SC State’s campus. This version of the exhibition includes mixed media works by participants in the summer studio institutes conducted by Hunter during the past three years.


The presentation of these exhibitions is the culmination of a two-year, three-state and seven-city tour and provides a clear view of Hunter’s growth as an artist and teacher. An opening reception for the exhibitions is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 18, 2011 at 5:30 p.m. in the Fine Arts Center’s Dr. Barbara A. Vaughan Recital Hall, located on the campus of SC State University. This event will feature a visual narrative of Hunter’s career, as well as a book signing which will follow immediately at the I.P. Stanback Museum and Planetarium. These events are free and open to the public.
