Artist Zoole’s ‘Bed’ exhibition set at Wofford College

November 2, 2004

SPARTANBURG, S.C. – “Bed – Archetypal and Ordinary,” a solo exhibition of Spartanburg artist Suzanne Zoole’s paintings of bedroom interiors, will open on Saturday, Nov. 6, in the Gallery of the Sandor Teszler Library at Wofford College. The exhibit runs through Dec. 22, and is free and open to the public.

Zoole has exhibited her works widely and is the recipient of numerous awards for excellence. Her paintings have been included in such prestigious exhibitions as the National Watercolor Society, and the SC Watercolor Society, and well as many local and regional shows.

In the works in this exhibition, Zoole sees the bed as archetypal — as a focus for all human events — both extraordinary and banal. The bed is the place of conception, death, abandonment, desire, illness, anxiety, argument and restoration.

The exhibition is funded in part by The Arts Partnership of Greater Spartanburg and its donors; the County and City of Spartanburg; the South Carolina Arts
Commission, which receives support from the National Endowment for the
Arts; and by an artist residency program at The Hambridge Center for Creative Arts
& Sciences in Rabun Gap, Ga.

The gallery is open during the library’s normal operating hours: Monday through Thursday 8 a.m.-midnight, Friday 8 a.m.-7 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 1 p.m.-midnight. Handicap access is available.

A public reception for the artist will be held on Friday, Dec. 17, from 6-7:30 p.m.
