EXHIBITION: And the Grass Still Grows by Adrian Rhodes

September 28 @ 9:00 am - October 26 @ 5:00 pm - FREE
Raised in Hartsville, SC, Adrian Rhodes is a prolific artist whose printwork pieces focus on repeating imagery and feature interspersed 2D and 3D elements. “Combining textile and print, I am interested in how repetition of imagery reflects recurring thought patterns and an unwillingness to move on. Print becomes a method for creating structure. This framework, indulging a desire for order, creates space for disruption,” states Rhodes. Her latest work, And the Grass Still Grows, will be featured in the Milliken Art Gallery.
