Based in Charleston and founded in 2000, cone 10 studios is home to many ceramic artists.
Art from FMU graduate, Bethany Luhman will also displayed. "World Consumerism" is an exhibit of layered digital photography that explores retail shopping spaces around the world. "Each image is made up of many found photographs source from the Internet. The found images represent a single, amateur view of the locale. They are presented in color, but lack clarity and focus, a suggestion of the fleeting pleasure and subsequent disillusionment of consumption," Luhman said. Luhman is currently working on her second master's in photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
Admission to the exhibits are free and open to the public. Click here for more information.
