Opening Reception for “Inside/Out” and “The Raw Materials of Escape”

Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston to celebrate the opening of their first exhibitions of 2020, Butch Anthony: Inside/Out and Coulter Fussell: The Raw Materials of Escape.

All College of Charleston students, faculty, and staff, and current Halsey Institute members receive free admission to our opening receptions. Non-members will be charged $5 admission.

Inside/Out is an exhibition of work by Butch Anthony of Seale, Alabama. The exhibition will consist of new images, assemblages, and installations created specifically for our galleries. As a multi-faceted self-taught artist, Anthony creates works that investigate and appropriate images from the American vernacular. “Inside/Out” brings together several of Anthony’s creative explorations over the past few years. Singular portraits, assemblage objects, and installations combine to create a working model of the inside of Anthony’s mind.

Quilter Coulter Fussell’s early-developed artsview perceives craft and other arts as indistinguishable from one another. Painting, sculpture, and textile work are one solitary entity in her mind. From youth, the combination developed into an unintentional mash-up, resulting in quilts and textile works that defy expectations of the medium. Fussell relies on the no-holds-barred nature of contemporary painting rules to free her compositions from the constraints of pattern. In turn, she simultaneously relies on the strict discipline of traditional craftwork to act as a self-editing tool.
