FLORENCE – “Passages to Flesh Fields,” an exhibit by Jim Boden, will run Aug. 22 through Oct. 6 in the Hyman Fine Arts Center on the Francis Marion University campus as part of the FMU 2000-2001 Art Gallery Series.
The center will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday. The exhibit is free and open to the public. It includes 13 works, all of which are pastel on paper.
“We speak of our stomachs ‘twisted in knots’ or ‘hearts skipping a beat’ and other tangible visions of our internal palpitations and twitches,” Boden said. “This loose umbrella of an idea was the start of the Passages series … fragments or moments of an internal journey.”
Boden, a native of St. Paul, Minn., earned the B.S. degree in art education from the University of Minnesota and the M.F.A. degree from the University of Cincinnati. He is an assistant professor of fine art at Coker College in Hartsville.
Boden’s work has appeared in numerous individual and group exhibits across the country and he has won many awards for his artwork. He has also served as a guest lecturer and visiting artist at several colleges and universities.
