Recognizing a mutual need, a group of fresh graduates from the College of Charleston in 2002 formed the nonprofit organization Redux Contemporary Art Center, to create a venue where local artists could produce and exhibit their work. Now in its 15th year these founding artists, along with alumni who were pivotal to the early development of the space, will create a collaborative group exhibition embracing the future of the organization – on the verge of its relocation and continuing growth. Founders Farewell will be the final exhibition at the original location, which has been home to Redux since the beginning.
Accompanying the exhibition is a Redux Founders Panel Discussion sponsored by the College of Charleston School of the Arts and its Departments of Studio Art, and Art & Architectural History. Panelists will include members of the College’s alumni founders: Bob Snead, Seth Gadsden, Julie Henson, Luke Vehorn, Bill Bolton, Seth Curcio, Dorothy Netherland and Darby Long. The discussion will focus on their collective efforts in founding the art center and their post-graduate careers.
The panel discussion will take place on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, from 5:00 to 6:00pm at the Simons Center for the Arts, room 309. The opening reception of the Founders Farewell exhibition will follow, from 7:00 to 9:00pm at Redux Studios, 136 Saint Philip St. Both events are FREE and open to the public.
