New Painting 

When: Wednesdays-Sundays, 12-6 p.m. Continues through Nov. 12 2017
New Painting is a group exhibition of contemporary painters and their exploration of techniques, which they rework and update to align with contemporary aesthetics. The show features works by Charleston artists Adam Eddy, Susan Klein, Karen Paavola, and Colin Quashie, former Charleston artist Sophie Treppendahl, and Atlanta artists Shanequa Gay and Natalie Escobar. Eddy's works borrow structures from everyday life and use them as formats for abstract painting; Escobar works with dark landscapes, sometimes utlizing airbrushing as a technique; Klein is currently an assistant professor of art at CofC whose work has been described as a "dense visual obstacle course;" Paavola also teaches as an adjunct professor at CofC, and is currently working on an auto-biographical series that deals with tragedy and coping with loss, using oil painting and screen printing; Quashie's work utilizes a "form of Warholesque flashiness that confounds as well as derides the spectator," with pieces that that look at issues of race, politics, and culture; Treppendahl, who now lives in Richmond, Va., seeks to investigate moments of enchantment in her work, dissected through the material of paint; and Gay, who has shown her work at a number of museums and art centers, has a current body of work, The FAIR GAME Project, which serves to challenge the "unyielding violence and injustices committed in America and across the globe against the black body."
