701 CCA hosts Triennial Revisted Aug 18 - Sep 25

Every three years or so SC held a Triennial Art Exhibit featuring on average 35 artists of the 100's that submitted. Since arts funding has been cut so dramatically, the 701 CCA decided to host a show featuring some of the artists that had shown their art during the event over the past 20 years.

The opening reception will be at 701 CCA Gallery Thursday August 18th, from 7-9PM at 701 Whaley St. Columbia, it is free to members and only $5. to non members. The show will be catered and a complimentary signature drink provided by Gervais and Vine (Vista on Gervais St.) and Rosso Trattoria Chef Kristian Niemi.

Information below from the 701CCA website:

Featuring the following artists:
John Acorn (Pendleton), Aldwyth (Hilton Head Island), Michael Brodeur (Greenville), Clay Burnette (Columbia), Jocelyn Chateauvert (Charleston), Stephen Chesley (Columbia) Bruno Civitico (Charleston), Jim Connell (Rock Hill), Debbie Cooke (Greenville), Tyrone Geter (Elgin), Peter Lenzo (Columbia), Elizabeth Melton (Rock Hill), Phil Moody (Rock Hill), Jane Nodine (Spartanburg), Herb Parker (Charleston), Colin Quashie (Charleston), Lee Sipe (Columbia) and Tom Stanley (Rock Hill)

The exhibition is sponsored by First Citizens Bank. With TRIENNIAL Revisited, 701 CCA presents a selection from the five S.C. Triennial exhibitions organized by the S.C. Arts Commission and S.C. State Museum between 1992 and 2004 and shown at the museum. TRIENNIAL Revisited is a juried exhibition that provides a prelude and historical context for the inaugural 701 CCA South Carolina Biennial.

Congratulations to all the artists!
