May 10, 2008

The sculpture of South Carolina artist Doug McAbee will be displayed in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Gallery at Coastal Carolina University from May 15 through June 20. An opening reception with the artist is Thursday, May 15 from 4:30 until 6:30 p.m. The event and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

McAbee was selected from a pool of South Carolina artists for a solo exhibition by guest juror Tom Stanley of Winthrop University.

He earned a bachelor's degree in art and an MFA in sculpture from Winthrop University. McAbee is a graphic designer for Carolina Emblem Company, an adjunct professor at Winthrop University, and he creates steel sculpture in his spare time.

McAbee and his work have been featured in The Rock Hill Herald, The Charlotte Observer, The Florence Morning News, The State News, Spartanburg Magazine and other publications. Bryan Gallery programs are supported in part by The Friends of Bryan Gallery, the Coastal Educational Foundation and the South Carolina Arts Commission.
