University Place Gallery
University Place Gallery is a visual art gallery located in the heart of downtown Florence. The beautifully renovated space is located on the first floor of the Rainwater Building and is an extension of Francis Marion University.
We offer free admission to rotating exhibitions which are designed to inspire and engage the residents of the Pee Dee Region. We also serve as both a catalyst for downtown development in the City of Florence and as a meeting place for artists and art enthusiasts. The gallery space is also available for private event rental.
Adrian Rhodes is a painter, printmaker, and installation artist who transforms gallery spaces into new realities, rich with symbolic imagery and her bold design aesthetic. Themes of bees, the human condition, the matrilineal, the corporeal, and mortality find themselves looping out of paper trails and attached to walls in swarms of winged creatures made of paper.
The FMU Annual Student Exhibition was juried by Adrian Rhodes and showcases the work of currently enrolled visual art majors and minors. It includes ceramics, traditional and alternative process photography, drawings, and digital collage.
