Clemson Arts shine throughout Artisphere 2016

June 3, 2016



GREENVILLE — During the second weekend of May, connections to Clemson University’s visual art program were on full display at Artisphere, Downtown Greenville’s annual arts and crafts festival. Beyond the orange splendor of Clemson’s festival tents, STEAM and the Art Department demonstration, there were numerous more connections to Tigertown to be found by looking a little harder at the other displays that lined Main Street. We are proud to announce the orange ties for those who may have missed them.

  • Syd Cross, Visual Art Professor Emerita, Contemporary Print Collective
  • Tom Dimond, Visual Art Professor Emeritus, Artists of the Upstate Exhibit
  • Marty Epp-Carter, MFA, OpenStudios Retrospective
  • Michael Marks, MFA alumnus, Artists of the Upstate Exhibit
  • Jo Carol Mitchell-Rogers, MFA, OpenStudios Retrospective
  • Carey Morton, MFA candidate, metalworking demonstration
  • Alexia Timberlake-Boyd, MFA, OpenStudios Retrospective
  • Ryan Roth, MFA alumnus, Artists of the Upstate Exhibit
  • Kathleen Thum, Visual Art Faculty, Artists of the Upstate Juror
  • Mike Vatalaro, Visual Art Professor Emeritus, OpenStudios Retrospective

We were inspired by all of the work of our former and current students and faculty. It is always encouraging to see Clemson’s innovative spirit on full display. Greenville, Clemson’s ‘Home City,’ certainly got a taste for the excellent and talented people who represent the Visual Arts at Clemson University. Thank you and congratulations!
