Avery Research Center to Host Eternal Vigilantes: The Art of Karole Turner Campbell

College of Charleston’s Avery Research Center for African-American History and Culture will present Eternal Vigilantes: The Art of Karole Turner Campbell starting on January 17 and running through March 31. The exhibit will be held in the McKinley Washington Auditorium of the Avery Research Center.

According to artist Karole Turner Campbell, “history is the sum of our existence and the events that occur are shaped by how we respond, our actions and reactions.  Freedom is one of our ultimate goals. Once we have attained it, how do we maintain it?”

She says Eternal Vigilance was the response offered by 19th century abolitionist, orator and newspaper publisher Frederick Douglass.  It was with Douglass in mind that she prepared this body of work.

The show, which consists of 45 pieces - sculptures / bas relief pieces, drawings and paintings, pays homage to the phenomena of being vigilante, of preserving and being agents of change. 

The exhibition opening and reception is January 17 at 6:00 p.m. at the Avery Research Center located at 125 Bull Street.

The event is free and open to the public.
