Spartanburg, S.C. – “Fire and Earth: The Works of Warner Hyde and Jane Allen Nodine,” an exhibition featuring works by two artists of the Carolinas, will open at Coastal Carolina University Thursday, March 10 in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery. The show is free and open to the public.

An opening reception will be held from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 10. It is also open to the public.

North Carolina artist Warner Hyde will present sculptural works made of natural clay, while artist Jane Nodine, professor of art and director of the Curtis R. Harley Gallery at University of South Carolina Upstate, will present her unique iron-oxidation encaustics.

Nodine’s work includes drawing and painting, jewelry-metalsmithing, installation and photography. She exhibits widely in the United States and has been included in several exhibitions in Europe. Recognized with numerous awards, Nodine received a Southeastern Seven IV Fellowship from the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art in Winston-Salem and two South Carolina Arts Commission Artist Fellowships.

Nodine is currently using a sabbatical leave to research historical and contemporary techniques of encaustic painting that was originated by the Egyptians in 100 A.D. Nodine’s work in encaustic often involves trace markings developed from prints using iron oxidation or rust, and have attracted attention across the U.S. in numerous national exhibits. Currently Nodine has work in the 6th Annual Encaustic Invitational at Conrad Wilde Gallery in Tucson, AZ that opens March 5th.  She recently returned from a trip to Santa Fe and Taos, NM where she attended the Encaustic Art Institute in Cerrillos, NM to work with Maine artist Kim Bernard, a specialist in the encaustic process of painting.

Hyde is an assistant professor of ceramics at Meredith College. He exhibits almost exclusively in North Carolina and South Carolina. Hyde will also discuss his eco-friendly processes during “Transcended Earth,” a Jackson Center Tea and Ethics presentation in the courtyard of the Thomas W. and Robin W. Edwards College of Humanities and Fine Arts at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 9.

Gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday through Aug. 6. For directions, visit www.coastal.edu/bryanartgallery.

The Bryan Gallery is supported in part by the Coastal Educational Foundation, the South Carolina Arts Commission and the Friends of the Bryan Gallery. All Bryan Gallery programs are free and open to the public.
