Each and every Tuesday night is Open Mic Night in The Forest.  The music, stand-up comedy, singing, etc., starts at 7:00 pm and usually lasts until around 9:30.  Past performances have included everything from the normal singing and performances with a guitar, to the more unusual Australian didgeridoo (also known as a didjeridu or didge, which is a wind instrument created by Indigenous Australians over 1500 years ago).

Local singing and guitar playing sensation Jacob Johnson emcees this event each week and it’s always a fun and entertaining time in The Forest.  And the best part is . . . it’s free!

Come and enjoy yourself, but if you want to strut your stuff and show off on stage, get here around 6:00 pm to get on the list.  Remember, it’s first come, first perform!

Lee Gallery, 1-101 Lee Hall

This showcase celebrates the bringing together of four artists focus in drawing who met at Clemson University and are now dispersed geographically throughout the U.S. as careers develop and expand.

While each artist has pursued a singular direction of thought and have not worked in close proximity to each other for many years, there are relationships to be found in this showcase. The drawings in this exhibition demonstrate a deep awareness of and relation to the natural, biological world. The works display drawing approaches that veer from highly sensitized systems of recording to open aggression. Transmitted are explorations of distance and proximity, the contemporary landscape, formation of matter, and systems of belief. Artists employ drawing to investigate and recompose their subjects.

Former Clemson art professor, Heidi Jensen invited three of her former students John Allen, Bethany Flagg Pipkin and Jackson Zorn to present drawings in this exhibit. These now alumni received Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in visual art with concentrations in drawing from Clemson University and all recently received Master of Fine Arts degrees from programs located in Florida, Indiana, and North Carolina.

Exhibit organized by RIVERWORKS Gallery in Greenville, SC.

1-5 p.m.

Brooks Center for the Performing Arts

This exhibit features a survey of work exploring abstraction from the Clemson Architecture Foundation Collection showcasing a range of approaches to abstraction from figurative to landscape and from objects to architecture.  Works were selected for their use of elements and principles of design as tools to assist in the decoding of meaning and content within the work. As viewers move through the exhibition the level of abstraction intensifies requiring increased visual engagement and reflection to deduce the artists’ intent.  By actively reading the visual clues the viewer stretches their interpretation skills towards layering future recollections when engaging with abstract works of art.  Artists included in the exhibition are noted southern painters: Carl Blair, David Freeman, Robert Hunter, John O’Neil, Walter Hollis Stevens and Edward Yaghjan. Additional artists: Ben Shahn, Antoine Predock, Manley, Bill Seitz and A. Stanick.

Exhibit organized by Brooks Center for the Performing Arts and the Lee Gallery.
