Governor’s School Student Artwork on Display at Hartsville Museum

Staff report

HARTSVILLE — Artwork by students at the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics (GSSM) will be featured at the W. Reaves McCall Gallery at the Hartsville Museum March 6-April 13. The exhibit is being shown in conjunction with the National Youth Art Month, which takes place annually in March.

For two weeks in January, Interim offers GSSM students a wide variety of course offerings that allow students to tap into undiscovered talents and explore new possibilities. Art in the Interim, taught by GSSM’s Visual Arts coordinator, Patz Fowle, and GSSM Artist in Residence, Mike Fowle, is a popular choice during Interim.

GSSM’s public art exhibition will feature works of the ten students who participated in this year’s Art in the Interim as well as selected works from other students who frequent GSSM’s Open Art Studio throughout the school year. Participating artists include:

Reed Studer, child of Heather and Todd Studer, of Prosperity.

“Art is a strong unifying element within a culture,” said Fowle. “The collaboration between the Hartsville Museum and the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics allows us to see the beautiful, beneficial bridge that connects the history of Hartsville with the future of Hartsville through art, education, and community.”

The Hartsville Museum is located at 222 North Fifth Street in Hartsville, and is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (closed noon to 1 p.m.) and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
