ROCK HILL, SC – The Arts Council of York County presents Drawings & Paintings, works by Marge Loudon Moody in the Dalton Gallery at the Center for the Arts, 121 E. Main St., Rock Hill, SC from March 22 – April 29, 2019. A free, public reception will be held on Thursday, April 11, 2019 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM
Marge Moody's work is inspired by her experience of places, distant, close to home, and from her imagination. Marge's work describes the ‘spirit’ of place. She works thematically as each experience may suggest many possible visual outcomes. The work examines boundaries, addresses the fragility of existence, of presence, of absence, and of memory.
Since graduating from Art College in Scotland, Great Britain, in 1972, Marge Moody has continued to develop her work in painting, drawing, collage and mixed media. She describes her work broadly as being landscape-based, which emanates from her experience of place through traveling as well as from her imagination. Her work varies in size from very small drawings to large paintings. Moody has exhibited her work in Great Britain, Washington D.C., New York, and in various galleries in the southeastern US. Moody is a recently retired professor of Fine Arts from Winthrop University, Rock Hill, where she taught for 30 years.
The repeated recipient of awards from Winthrop University (Rock Hill, SC), the SC Arts Commission, and the Arts and Science Council (Charlotte, NC), Marge’s work is part of many private and corporate collections in Great Britain and the US, including the South Carolina State Art Collection, the Medical University of SC Collection, Williams and Fudge and the Winthrop University Collection. She completed a residency at McColl Center for Visual Art in Charlotte, NC in 2006, and at OBRAS – Portugal in 2015.
This exhibit is a part of the Come-See-Me Festival, and the South Carolina Humanities Festival and the Come-See-Me Festival.
This project was made possible by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural & Cultural Resources, the Blumenthal Endowment and the Arts Council of York County.
