Student watercolor paintings exhibited at Wofford

October 26, 2006

Spartanburg, S.C. – Wofford College is hosting an exhibit featuring watercolor paintings by student Leland Wood beginning Thursday, Oct. 26. The exhibit is free and open to the public.

The works will be on exhibit through Dec. 12 in the Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery in the Raines Center. Hours for the gallery are 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 6 p.m. Saturday; and noon to 9 p.m. Sunday.

Wood, a Wofford junior and graduate of Spartanburg High School, is the recipient of the 2006 Thomas Daniel Whetsell Memorial Fellowship for the Visual Arts. The fellowship was established by Dr. William O. Whetsell in memory of his brother, Dan Whetsell, to enable a Wofford student to study some aspect of the visual arts, with the summer's study leading to an exhibition on the campus.

Wood spent the summer working with Spartanburg artist Daniel Cromer developing his skill in watercolor. Under Cromer's direction, Wood invested time in exploring monochromatic tonal values, composition and color handling.  The exhibit will include several phases of the work leading to the final results.
