The Art of Tyrone Geter: Then & Now
Monday, Sept. 3 – Friday, Oct. 12

Tyrone Geter’s work finds its foundation in the legacy of his mother, who grew up in the early 1900s in an environment of discrimination, poverty and illiteracy. His works in charcoal, mixed media and pastels refer to the trials of youth and the struggle of the aged, reflecting themes of compassion, hope, justice and perseverance. Geter was born in Anniston, Ala., and earned his MFA from Ohio University in 1978. For seven years he lived in Zaria, Nigeria, creating art and learning the culture of the nomadic Fulani people. He taught at the University of Akron and recently retired as an associate professor of art at Benedict College in Columbia, S.C.
