    Surfaces and Spaces: Photography of Cecelia Feld & Bruce Schlein

    Where
    307 Johnson Street Pickens SC [ Map ]
    Description
    The Pickens County Museum of Art & History will be presenting two new exhibitions beginning June 27, 2015. Please join us from 1:00 until 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 27 as we host a reception to meet the artists in, Surfaces and Spaces: Photography of Cecelia Feld & Bruce Schlein.

    Also opening that day will be the exhibition, Ancient Forms, Modern Minds: Contemporary Cherokee Ceramics, focusing on the works of 11 contemporary Cherokee potters. Both exhibitions will be on display through August 20, 2015.

    This exhibition of photographs is a compilation of work based on Cecelia Feld's & Bruce Schlein's shared interest in what people write on pavements, walls and fences. It is a documentation of mark-making, as well as the play of light and shadow on these outer surfaces and inside spaces. The essential focus is on how people decorate their environments and how light transforms a scene, influencing our perception of the scene.

    Both photographers are interested in vertical and horizontal planes such as walls, floors, sidewalks and streets and how people mark these areas with statements of personal expression, warnings, directions, or other kinds of information. The vertical spaces are a bit more complex. They may be fences or walls, which are decorated and/or assembled into rooms or buildings where the play of light outside and inside creates vignettes of particular beauty. The photographs present some of the ways we engage with our environment.

    Cecelia Feld grew up in New York City and received her B.A. from Hunter College, N.Y. in 1963. She moved to Dallas, Texas in 1969, receiving a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1976 from the University of North Texas. Cecelia has exhibited her paintings, drawings, prints and photographs in juried and invitational exhibits throughout the U.S. She has had numerous solo exhibitions and her artwork is in many private and corporate collections including Frito-Lay, Inc., I.B.M. and Delta Airlines.

    Cecelia is a recipient of a MacDowell Colony Visual Artist Fellowship. The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire was founded in 1907 as a place where selected artists, writers, and composers can work uninterrupted in a secluded setting. She also received a Fellowship for a Residency in printmaking at the Vermont Studio Center, Johnson, Vermont in 1997.

    When asked about her work in this exhibition, Cecelia stated, "People and places, close to home or far away, are the subjects of my photographs. The action, the light, the drama, the unexpected is what excites me." She continued, "From Dallas to Santa Fe to New York and places in between, the streets and sidewalks show evidence of our presence. We were there. We made marks. We have altered the terrain. I like the abstract quality of these marks and the contrast between the colorful markings and the neutral ground on which they are drawn. This mark making is the focus of the series of photographs fondly called "Underfoot. My pictures celebrate people and the world in which they live. I catch the moments directly or out of the corner of my eye; the moments that make me pause to take a second look."

    Bruce Schlein is a retired pathologist. He is a graduate of Linden, NJ public schools, Columbia College of Columbia University and State University of NY, Downstate Medical College. Schlein has been pursuing photography since the 1960s; self-taught with mentoring from the late John Menapace of Durham, NC. Bruce has taught photography for a number of years at the Greenville County Museum School of Art as time has permitted. He is currently instructing photography in the Furman University Learning in Retirement Program and has instructed in the Furman Learning for You Program.

    When asked about this current work, Bruce said, "I am currently working on trying to understand our interactions with spaces, surfaces and the light that helps define them. Every piece of life a photographer sees has a special feel or sense to it. If I can catch that essence, the photograph is fun for me and occasionally for others to look at."

    "Surfaces and Spaces: Photography of Cecelia Feld & Bruce Schlein" is sponsored in part by South State Bank, Pickens Savings & Loan and Robinson Funeral Home, Crematory and Memorial Gardens. The Pickens County Museum of Art & History is funded in part by Pickens County, members and friends of the museum and a grant from the South Carolina Arts Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the Arts.

    Located at the corner of Hwy. 178 at 307 Johnson Street in Pickens SC, the museum is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Thursdays from 9:00 a.m. until 7:30 p.m. and Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Admission is free but donations are welcomed.

    The Cherokee have been making pottery in Western North Carolina for almost 3,000 years. Though nearly disappearing in the 19th century, the tradition survived, emerging as a contemporary art form enriched by the Cherokee artists who have carefully preserved and passed on their practice from one generation to the next.

    For the first 2,000 years of the tradition, Cherokee potters created large, thin-walled, waterproof pots that were stamped with geometric designs. But early in the 20th century this style was almost entirely replaced by the production of heavier pottery, termed blackware, which was incised rather than stamped, a style common to the Catawba, Pueblo and Navajo tribes at that time. Though heavily influenced by these other Native American traditions, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians developed their own techniques. Commonly referred to as the traditional style, this work persisted as the dominant form for the duration of the 20th century.

    It was not until the beginning of the 21st century that Cherokee potters revived the historic, thin-walled pottery style. Also during the present century, a third category of artists working in a contemporary style emerged producing highly decorated and glazed ceramic works. Many of these artists utilize the Cherokee syllabary or other Cherokee symbols in their work.

    Artists including Davy Arch, Darrin Bark, Bernadine George, Betty Maney, Louise Maney, Harold Long, Shirley Oswalt, Joel Queen, Dean Reed, Alyne Stamper and Amanda Swimmer, are among those featured in Ancient Forms, Modern Minds. This exhibition celebrates the rich history of Cherokee pottery as well as the creativity and innovation of contemporary Cherokee potters.

    This exhibition was organized and curated by the Asheville Art Museum. Ancient Forms, Modern Minds is sponsored in part by RTCAR, Cherokee Preservation Foundation, the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians and North Carolina State University. This exhibition will travel to other venues.

    The Pickens County Museum's hosting of "Ancient Forms, Modern Minds: Contemporary Cherokee Ceramics" is sponsored in part by South State Bank, Pickens Savings & Loan and Robinson Funeral Home, Crematory and Memorial Gardens.
