FMU’s Kassab Gallery to host new summer exhibit

Francis Marion University’s Adele Kassab Gallery in the Hyman Fine Arts Center will host a new exhibit by artist Jeff Murphy throughout the summer.

Befoul: Prints on Cloth, which will be on display May 24 through Aug. 2, is Murphy’s newest series of works that mix charcoal drawings and photographs in heavily edited collages that incorporate images of the sea and ocean-going animals.

Most of the works are on poplin cloth mounted to wood and covered with wax in a presentation style that provides a distinctly strong texture. Others are printed on sateen cloth and displayed as large wall hangings.

Murphy is an associate professor of art at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte where he teaches digital imaging, interactive design, photography, video and animation. His work has been published in an array of publications, including WIRED Magazine, World Art Magazine and the textbook Exploring Color Photography.
