Lauded local artist Tim Hussey unveils his new documentary Running by Sight on Wed. Feb. 10.
In the 1990s, Hussey's illustrations appeared in magazines like Rolling Stone and The New York Times. He also worked as art director for GQ, Outside, Musician, and Men's Health. More recently, he has devoted most of his time to fine art, developing a strong international following for his contemporary work.
Filmmaker Adam Boozer followed him around for a year, recording his life and artistic process. Boozer, an Atlanta native, runs media company Jewell&Ginnie and is the winner of multiple advertising awards. He has recently been recording video for the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at explorecharleston.com.
Using Hussey as the focus of his film, Boozer interviews associated artists, gallery owners, and collectors. He also visits the places that inspire Hussey, from the Ladson flea market and the old Navy Yard to rural Southern towns.
After the screening, the film will be sent to galleries to promote the artist's work and process.
Running by Sight features appearances by Shepard Fairey, Jill Hooper, Rebekah Jacob, and Halsey Director Mark Sloan. The 45-minute film will be shown at the Sottile Theatre, 44 George St., at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. There will be a cash bar. Admission is free. For more information, call (843) 953-5623. Hussey's paintings are currently on view at Rebekah Jacob Gallery, 169 King St.
