CPC Member Jim Creal : Coastal Carolina Lithographs

South Carolina Coastal Lithograph Project
by Jim Creal

The original mission of The South Carolina Coastal Lithograph Project was to create a lasting body of lithographic work devoted to capturing the mood, spirit and rich diversity of South Carolina's coastal habitats and some of their extraordinary indigenous creatures. In this exhibit, Jim Creal augments the original project to include not only the hand produced original lithographs as originally envisioned but also adds his documentary site/habitat photographs to flush out telling the visual story of our coast’s magnificent and increasingly endangered ecosystem.  This project is his way of sharing with audiences the visual story and magnificent beauty of South Carolina’s coastal habitats, their combined significance as a vital ecosystem under stress and their value as a national treasure that needs to be preserved for future generations.

Contemporary Print Collective, CPC, is a collaborative group of artists living and working in upstate South Carolina. The CPC group was formed to engage artists and community in the art of printmaking by sharing original art and artist’s knowledge through educational events and exhibitions. The CPC mission states; “We seek to foster an awareness of original, hand-pulled prints by promoting exhibitions, educational opportunities, and encouraging the art of collecting prints”. An associate member of Greenville Center for Creative Arts, GCCA, the CPC 25 artist members include, 11 active studios and printshops, seven artist educators and representation in nine commercial galleries.
 
Confluence, the brainchild of Freda Sue Gin-Win, assistant professor of printmaking at USC Upstate, and Louis Chen, director of Ideas Creation Studios in Taiwan, is an exhibit comprised of 44 artist prints, 22 by CPC in the US, and 22 by ICS in Taiwan. Each artist participated with works that represent their individual technical and conceptual interests in printing, and offers an exhibit of depth and breadth across the spectrum of printmaking. Confluence exhibited in 2017 at GCCA in Greenville, and in 2018 it in Taipei City and Chiayi City in Taiwan. The exhibit is available to travel and inquiries can be made to CPC at:contemporaryprintcollective@gmail.com.
 
Jane Nodine, University Gallery Director at USC Upstate, and fellow CPC member states; “I am pleased to bring Confluence to UPSTATE Gallery on Main, and the Spartanburg Community, where we have strong ties to international collaborations and residents. This exhibit supports the mission of USC Upstate and the outreach of our university gallery program. I believe there will be something in this exhibition that will interest all viewers and I encourage attendance of all ages.”

UPSTATE Gallery on Main is one of three galleries sponsored by the University of South Carolina Upstate. Located at 172 E. Main St. in downtown Spartanburg, the gallery is dedicated to contemporary exhibitions and works from the University's permanent collection.
