Meet the Artists of Fixins’ Exhibit Tonight
Meet the artists behind the Fixins’ exhibit now on display at the Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum tonight, Nov. 2, 2018. This exhibit explores southern food culture through art and conversation, explains Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum Director Shelby Henderson. “Join us in welcoming artists Logan Woodle and Amber Eckersley as they share insights about their works exhibited now through Dec. 8, at Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum. Logan Woodle is an assistant professor at Coastal Carolina University where he teaches all things three-dimensional. He earned a BFA in sculpture from Winthrop University in 2009 and a MFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. His works deal with the mythologies that grow like weeds in the agrarian South and has been featured in galleries and museums across the country and in the award-winning book Humor in Craft by Brigitte Martin. Amber Eckersley, a native of Conway, SC, received her MFA in Visual Arts from Clemson University and her BA in History from Coastal Carolina University. Her work is strongly influenced by her experiences growing up pulling weeds with her mother, hunting with her father, and canning tomatoes with her grandma under the unrelenting humidity of South Carolina summers and explores themes of memory and residue, utilizing various mediums including photography, scanning, video, and audio.” Food will also be served, adds Henderson. “Light refreshments will be catered by Big D’s BBQ of West Union.” This is a free public event from 5:30-7:30pm at the Bertha Lee Strickland Cultural Museum, which is located at 208 West South 2nd Street in Seneca.
