Brandon Lutterman "Versatility"
October 17, 2016- November 11, 2016
Coker College’s Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery presents an exhibition by Brandon Lutterman titled, “Versatility,” with a reception, which is free and open to the public. The exhibition begins on Monday, October 17, 2016 at 7 p.m. and light refreshments will be served.
Lutterman’s show will continue through November 11, 2016.
Lutterman received his Bachelor in Fine Arts and Master of Arts degree in Ceramics at Minnesota State University, Mankato. He received his Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics from Kansas State University. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Visual Arts and Program Director at Lincoln Memorial University in Harrogate, Tennessee.
Lutterman’s Jurassic Series of sculptures is a culmination of his need to be a “cool dad” and artist, inspired to create works that talk to a broader audience including his children. “My current body of work expresses the importance of preservation and being aware of your own personal duty to preserve this world. The works are created to celebrate life, prompt more stewardship and awareness of the importance of all life,” Lutterman said about the work. Brandon Lutterman’s dinosaur sculptures characterize the extinct species through actual depictions of their bodies and more abstract representations of their scales.
The Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday, while classes are in session, and is located in the Gladys C Fort Art Building on the campus of Coker College, Hartsville, S.C. Parking entrance, for the art building, is directly across from 306 E. Home Ave. For more information, contact exhibition director Ashley Gillespie at 843-383-8156 or .
