Special Collections and Archives Exhibition
James B. Duke Library
25 April - 25 July 2008

The Travelers Rest Arts Mission ("TRAM") and Special Collections and Archives at Furman University present a rare opportunity to view works by local professional artists who are members of TRAM. This continued show is a testament to the amazing talent found in the Upstate. Each artist "colors" the show with his or her own unique use of media.

The artists featured from 25 April - 25 July are:
Dianne Anastos, James Anderson, Barbara Blaisdell, Paula Borek, Malvern Brown, Shirley Brown, Deona Fish,Teri Goddard, Michele Golobic-Moore, Barbara Green, LeeAnne Griffin, Georgia Harrison, Don Lewis, Karen Lucci, Steve Marlow, Terri McCord, Mike Merritt, Bev Peeples, Bonnie Smith, Debbie Wilson, and Michele Ells Wright.

Why these artists?
The Travelers Rest Arts Mission carefully selected these artists as each artist "colors" the show with his or her own unique use of media. The subject matter presented is regional, ranging from the Blue Ridge Mountains to a close-up of an old-fashioned Bleeding Heart. Many of the three-dimensional artworks, too, are made of local materials such as wisteria vines, gourds, honeysuckle vines, copper, and salvaged wood.
