Coker College’s Cecelia Coker Bell Gallery presents an exhibition by Hollis Hammonds titled, “Hollis Hammonds,” with a reception, which is free and open to the public.

Hollis Hammonds is the author of Drawing Structure: Conceptual and Observational Techniques, and has had her creative work featured in multiple publications. She was awarded the grand prize for the Dave Bown Projects 14th Semiannual Competition, and has been an artist in residence at McColl Center for Art + Innovation, Vermont Studio Center, and Atlantic Center for the Arts, and is an Associate Professor of Art and Chair of the Department of Visual Studies at St. Edward’s University in Austin, TX.
“Hollis Hammonds’ dystopian drawings and found-object installations have been widely exhibited throughout the US. Built on threads of personal memory tied to the public collective consciousness, her work reflects the evidence of war, natural disasters, environmental degradation, and the ills of consumerism,” says Hollis about the work. Hammonds attempts to represent moments in time, some of the past, some of the possible future and some of complete imagination.
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.
Coker College upholds and defends the intellectual and artistic freedom of its faculty and students as they study and create art through which they explore the full spectrum of human experience. The college considers such pursuits central to the spirit of inquiry and thoughtful discussion, which are at the heart of a liberal arts education.
