FMU to exhibit work of three artists in Rogers Library

FLORENCE – Works by artists David Dixon, David Sanders and Georgette Sanders are on display at the James A. Rogers Library on the campus of Francis Marion University through Feb. 28.

Admission is free and open to the public. Exhibit hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 p.m., Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 2:30 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Dixon holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in media arts with a concentration in television production. He is currently pursuing a graduate degree in filmmaking from Ohio University. Dixon has designed visual projects for Bio-Medical Media, audio/visual presentations and broadcast productions for television and radio; with three successful broadcast projects aired over WRJA-ETV/ Channel-27 in Sumter.

David Sanders earned a graduate degree in 1970 from the University of South Carolina in art - printmaking and sculpture and one from the Pratt Institute in 1969 in the same discipline. He is a 1964 graduate of Morris College where he earned a B.A. degree in social studies. Sanders is currently the executive director of the Manning Avenue Free Studio in Sumter and has been since 1976.

Georgette Sanders’ work reflects the need to connect to the beauty of what comes from Mother Earth‘s natural resources such as sweet grass, bull rush, pine needles, beads and fabrics. She finds clay to be unpredictable yet flexible. She believes it offers wonderful creative results that can sincerely be released from a person’s artistic soul. Therefore, through these natural resources rendered from the earth, she creates woven crafts with clay accents.
