In partnership with the Goodall Gallery at Columbia College, the CMA is excited to host a sister show of the retrospective exhibition, A Lasting Impression: 35 Years of Columbia College Printmaking
. Both exhibitions highlight prints from the college's art collection featuring works by more than 70 former Columbia College students spanning a four-decade period created under the tutelage of South Carolina printmaker, Stephen Nevitt. 36 of these significant works are on display in the CMA's Community Gallery.
The works are a testament to Nevitt's dedication to teaching and illustrate the notable changes and progression of the printmaking program under his direction. The retrospective features works done in a variety of printmaking techniques, styles, and concepts - from intaglios and silkscreens to collagraphs and monotypes, each decade is marked by its own unique style indicative and reflective of both the student's cultural era and Nevitt's own teaching approaches.
The Columbia College printmaking program has taught hundreds of students and several generations under Nevitt's sole direction and instruction. For Nevitt, this retrospective exhibition is more than just a showing of student works highlighting a teaching career. More importantly, it is a wonderful opportunity to bring together students from the past and to celebrate their work together.
The full exhibition can be seen at The Columbia College Goodall Gallery located inside the Spears Center for the Arts at 1301 Columbia College Drive in downtown Columbia off of North Main Street. Gallery Hours are Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Location: David Wallace Robinson, Jr. Community Gallery
