Re: “Prolific artist Phillip Hyman spreads the love underground

What makes “Gullah Art” - “Gullah Art? Are images of chickens running around in barnyards, sharecropper farmers in straw hats and fat women in colorful rainbow colored stripe and polka dot dresses losing its appeal as iconic images of what we think of as Gullah Art? Should we wonder, is a new genre of two dimensional Gullah Art on the horizon? Sweetgrass basketry aside, the question begs, exactly what is “Gullah” imagery?

A possible answer may viewed in the daring innovative fresh style of modern images that mirror the past, the content of Bernice Mitchell Tate’s current installation exhibition at The College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center. REMEMBERING HER TIME: The Art of Bernice Mitchell Tate, (Herstory & Heritage) offers a sophisticated option to art lovers, investors and collectors who are seeking a new perspective of Gullah Art. REMEMBERING HER TIME: The Art of Bernice Mitchell Tate (Herstory & Heritage) which opened on May 17, 2012, is a transmedia installation as well as an exhibition of sculptural collages, large canvases, high fashion accessories design concepts. Using a process she calls fused continuity, the artist provides visual evidence of how material culture, in this instance, is transformed into contemporary mixed media art works of modern imagery. “This is indeed something new.” The installation may arguably be one of the longest running, one woman, single artist exhibitions ever mounted at the Avery. The showing which opened on May 17th, will extend through August 17, 2012 at The College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center, 125 Bull Street, Charleston, South Carolina 29424
