Exposure Series

performance at the clemens fine arts center

This series enables both the audience and artist the opportunity to explore ideas about our world with an interdisciplinary and more mission-based approach while examining the creative process in the real world. The series features artists working in media that discuss current social and cultural topics. The main purpose of the series is to introduce the community to a different way of experiencing the arts by challenging current ideas about what art is and to encourage critical thinking about perceptions of the world and our community with the hopes of generating a greater understanding and acceptance of difference and ideas.

LaVon Williams Artwork
Clemens Fine Arts Gallery

October 11 through November 30

From professional basketball to acclaimed carver, LaVon Van Williams, Jr.’s artistic path was wrought with an incessant urge driving him back to his first love, carving. Williams’ bas-relief carvings are a culmination of familial influence stretching back generations with roots in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Growing up in an artistic household filled with writers, carvers, and illustrators set to the roaring sounds of his father’s extensive jazz record collection supplied an energy that thrust Williams on his creative path.
