Christine Bush Roman, winner of the 2020 North Charleston Arts Fest Poster Design Competition, will display her winning piece, Oak Circus, along with a series of new work in an exhibition titled Loose Parts. This exhibition features more than a dozen new mixed media pieces created with painting, drawing, and collaging techniques that express color, joy, and playfulness. The work is inspired by the phrase “loose parts,” referring to childhood play materials with no explicit rules or instructions. These loose parts can be combined, restructured, taken apart, and put back together in multiple ways. Similarly, artists are continually tinkering with and reorganizing experiences and inspirations to create interesting works of art. The exhibition also references the creative process, which often involves the designing, destructing, and then rebuilding of concepts. The public is invited to meet the artist at the gallery at the Arts Fest Opening Celebration on Wednesday, April 29, from 6-8pm.
