CHARLESTON - Coastal Carolina University's Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery will exhibit "Weaving, Stacking, Staining," a large-scale work by visiting artist Jonathan Brilliant, beginning in January.
Visitors to the gallery can watch the artist at work Jan. 9-19. An opening with the artist will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 19. The work will remain on display through Feb. 17.
Brilliant's site-specific sculptures and installations use traditional weaving and common materials to transform spaces into lyrical environments. His monumental-scale installations are created using objects found in the contemporary coffee shop.
The Charleston native is the South Carolina Arts Commission Fellow for 2011-2012 and received a prestigious Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant in 2011. He has created sculptural installations at universities and galleries throughout the country. Brilliant earned a bachelor's degree in studio art from the College of Charleston and an MFA in spatial arts from San Jose State University.
