Opening Reception – Butch Anthony: Inside Out & Coulter Fussell: The Raw Materials of Escape at Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art

January 17 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm EST

Free – $5

Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston to celebrate the opening reception of their new exhibitions “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 the opening reception. 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.

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.
