Coker College presents an exhibition of sculptures by Cianne Fragione titled "Pocket Full of Promises" with a reception, which is free and open to the public, ​to be held on Monday, March 13, 2017 from 7-8 p.m. ​Light refreshments will be served. Fragione's show will continue through April 7, 2017.


Cianne Fragione received her B.A. in painting and mixed media in 1981 at Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont and received her M.F.A. in painting and mixed media at the John F. Kennedy University in 

​Berkeley, California.


"Pocket Full of Promises" is an assemblage series that uses pocketbooks as a basic form, and reflects my long commitment to the medium. Pocketbooks bear the implements of everyday life, and indeed they are "books" whose chapters take form as I add other objects to them. This process uses both art and non-art materials to develop tremendous density of evocation, connection, and poetic interaction, as well as sculptural presence​," says Fragione about the work. She will be available for an artist's talk at the opening and will be free to take questions.


The Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery is open from 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.​

The gallery is located in the Gladys C Fort Art Building on the campus of Coker College in Hartsville, SC. Parking entrance for the art building is directly across from 306 E. Home Ave.
