Campobello artist’s work on display in Spartanburg gallery
Campobello sculptor Lalage Warrington will be a featured artist at the Artists’ Guild of Spartanburg in August. The show, entitled “Feeling and Form,” will include her work along with that of painter Kate Thayer. It will be on display throughout August in the Guild Gallery at the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg. It is free for public viewing Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The last exhibiting day will be Saturday, Aug. 27.
The reception will be on Thursday, Aug. 18. This free cultural event will feature a brief artists’ discussion and question-and-answer session starting at 5 p.m.
Warrington is a native of Spartanburg who now lives and works in the countryside of Campobello. In addition to her studio work, Warrington has taught sculpting extensively at the Chapman Cultural Center and Converse College. She has produced more than 25 commissioned busts, and her bust of Walter S. Montgomery II, Spartanburg textile executive, is on permanent display at the Spartanburg County Foundation. During her long career, Warrington once did facial reconstructions of clay on skeletal remains to help identify crime victims.
As an artist, Warrington says, “I suppose I am basically an abstract expressionist for I struggle to express feeling in whatever I create. This pertains to representational, figurative, 2-D, 3-D, abstract or whatever it happens to be. On viewing one of my pieces, it is hoped that the eye can travel easily from one area to the next with the end result of an expressed feeling.”
