Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery, Campus Life Building
Although Amy Holbein studied textile design at Eastern Carolina University, where she received her education, she learned to use pastels and oils in developing figurative works and portraits. In more recent years she has begun combining oils and encaustics (cold wax) in abstract and non-objective work. In all her work, she likes complex, layered surfaces loaded with color. She says she hopes these intricate surfaces and heavy infusions of color connect the viewer with “a glimpse of something sacred.” Amy Holbein is an instructor in studio art at Wofford College. Her work has been on display at the Spartanburg Art Museum, the Anderson Art Center, the Carolina Gallery, and the Bearden-Josey Center for Breast Health.
Martha Cloud Chapman Gallery is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
