Learning one’s ABCs takes on a whole new meaning when a Columbia, artist turns the familiar symbols into an array of whimsical images, featured in an exhibition called Claire Farrell: A is for Art opening June 3 at the Franklin G. Burroughs-Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum in Myrtle Beach.
The exhibit runs through Sept. 14. Regular Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday 1 to 4 p.m. Beginning June 17 and running through August 17, the Art Museum will be open until 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Friday and until 8 p.m. on Wednesday and Thursday.
A is for Art is a collection of 26 mixed media monotypes, one for each letter in the alphabet.
Farrell, a native of Charleston, is a graduate of Duke University. She also holds two master’s degrees from the University of South Carolina, one in art studio.
A is for Art runs concurrently with Ansel Adams: Classic Images. Admission to the Art Museum is free at all times, but donations are welcome.
