Need proof that two artistic heads are better than one? Then head out to McMaster Gallery’s exhibit of “Paper, Structure, Form,” which opens Thursday and continues through Feb. 19.
The free exhibit on the University of South Carolina campus features a collaborative exhibition of works on paper between USC associate arts professor Mary Robinson and international artist Frol Boundin.
Robinson is an associate professor of art and head of printmaking at USC. She received a bachelor’s degree in studio art from the University of Colorado and a master’s degree in printmaking from Indiana University. Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Australia, Europe and Asia.
Boundin was born in Leningrad (St. Petersburg, Russia) in 1974. He received his initial artistic training in the traditions of social realism from his grandfather, the painter Victor Boundin, as well as at the Leningrad School of General Arts.
Robinson’s imagery emphasizes the natural and organic forms, while Boundin’s explores the mechanical and architectural. Their collaboration includes a merging of individual narratives, both formally and conceptually.
McMaster Gallery is located at 1615 Senate St. Columbia. Gallery hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
