From August 18, 2018 to December 5, 2018
In the fall of 2018, McKissick Museum in Columbia, SC, will premiere Place It/Face It: Pottery by Eugene, the first retrospective exhibition of ceramic art by self-taught, African-American potters Winton and Rosa Eugene of Cowpens, SC. For thirty years, this husband and wife artistic team has produced a body of functional wares that speak to southerners’ shared experience of place and sculptural works that seek to address issues of particular concern to them. The exhibit will survey both the wheel-turned, painted plates and pitchers that Winton creates to document the vernacular architecture, flora and fauna of the south, as well as the series of sculptural works Rosa hand coils—Minority in Relief, The Struggle, and Beauty to name a few. The opening reception for the exhibit will be Thursday, August 30, 5:30-7:30pm.
