Boden exhibit opens at Florence Museum’s Waters Gallery
The Florence County Museum is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by artist Jim Boden. An opening reception for the exhibit titled Out of Paradise will take place Thursday at 6 p.m. in the Waters Gallery, located at 135 South Dargan Street.
Out of Paradise will be composed of works created by Boden during the last ten years. Boden is Professor Emeritus at Coker University where he taught from 1999 to 2016.
Boden’s lush and darkly toned paintings are figurative in more ways than one, frequently using the human body as a means of expressing personal and cultural tensions.
The exhibition’s title is taken from the artist’s most recent series, which depict modern man and woman in an ambiguous, sometimes surrealistic landscape, evoking biblical references to Adam and Eve’s exit from Eden.
Out of Paradise will be on display in the FCM Waters Gallery through Dec. 13. The gallery, located at 135 South Dargan Street, is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
