The Sumter County Cultural Commission is pleased to announce the next installment of its Emerging Artist Series with “transFORMations”, a survey of emergent sculptural practices by current college students and recent graduates from throughout the southeast.

Artists featured include: Winthrop alumni Mark McCleod and Todd Stewart, as well as current Winthrop BFA and MFA students Sarah Cason, Nathan Dodds, Lee Ann Harrison, Matt Horick, Michael Sorrow, and Andrew Davis. 

The Emerging Artist Series is an exhibition program, curated by Frank McCauley of the Sumter County Gallery of Art, dedicated to promising young artists working in the state of South Carolina whom have not yet had a solo exhibition or that are early on in their professional art practice. The series reflects shifting trends in contemporary artistic practice and production, and will help to facilitate the creation of new bodies of work in a variety of media including photography, printmaking, installation, sound, painting, drawing, sculpture, film, and video. This series supports emerging artists and provides a dedicated forum for the exhibition of exciting new work.

The Sumter County Cultural Commission continually strives to engage community members of all ages in the creation, contemplation, and appreciation of the visual arts. Gallery 135 focuses its efforts on presenting temporary exhibitions throughout the year featuring local and regional emerging artists from diverse backgrounds working in a variety of media.
