The Greenville Museum of Art is thrilled to present Undoing, an exhibition of art made from everyday and found materials by four artists: Krista Clark, BR Goldstein, Grace Hong, and Michael Watson. The title Undoing refers to all four artists’ processes of deconstructing everyday objects or materials through the creation of their work. Knowing that viewers bring their own associations to the familiar materials found throughout this exhibition, "Undoing" also relates to the loosening of spoken and written language as the primary means of conveying information or ideas.
Opening Reception: 10/8/2021
GMoA Members: 5-8pm
General Public: 6-8pm
Free admission for all!

What if you awoke fifteen years older than yesterday? And then three years younger the next day?

It is an unforgettable story about the burdens of time, the endurance of love, and the power of family. In this book club, examine these themes as they relate to Reynolda’s fall exhibition and our own personal journeys.
