Shows, Shows, Shows / by Alexander Thierry

The start of 2019 has been jam packed with exhibitions.  I am very happy to a be a part of all of these exhibitions and have only now had a minute to sit down and write about them.


In January, I installed a new piece in an exhibition with the Palmetto Curatorial Exchange at the South Carolina Educational Television Studio in Columbia, South Carolina.This piece is one that contains living grass that slowly gets dry and dies over the course of the exhibition.I have not seen this piece since January and am very curious as to how it looks now.This piece and works from other artists from South Carolina is on display through April 2019.


Also, in January, the 701 Center for Contemporary Art Prize Exhibition moved from Columbia, South Carolina to the Jones-Carter Gallery in Lake City, South Carolina.  The work was displayed in a different configuration and overall the show looked great.  Below you will find some photos from that exhibition.  The exhibition at Jones-Carter Gallery closed on February 23rd, 2019 and a good amount of people able to see the show throughout its duration.

At the end of January, I traveled to Kirksville, Missouri to install work in the Truman State University Art GalleryDreamwork is the collective theme of the work of Leah Boring, Emily Nickel, and me.  All former students of Wynne Wilbur, we were invited to show work alongside the retrospective of Wynne.  She is retiring after this semester and will be leaving a definite whole at Truman.  We were all so proud to be able to be together to celebrate Wynne and our individual successes.  The exhibition ran from January 26th – March 1st.  Below are some photos of my work but it is worth a look around to find images of the whole exhibition.  It looked fantastic.

Opening on March 1st in Savannah, Georgia is Sip: A Ceramic Cup Show will be on display at the Whitefield Center.  The exhibition of cups will be open until March 8th.  This exhibition is put on by the Savannah Clay Community and 10% of sales is donated to the Emmaus House to help feed Savannah’s hungry.
