Art Displays Return to USC Sumter
After several years’ hiatus, art has returned to the galleries at USC Sumter beginning with a wonderful collection of photography from artist Dr. Richard E. Getty. “Reflections” is a digital photography display on view in the Upstairs Gallery through December 14, 2013 in the USC Sumter Williams Brice Edwards Administration Building. It is free and open to the public.
The display contains sixteen prints of reflections from glass and behind glass simultaneously. According to Dr. Getty, “At times the reflections in these prints are minimal, others are busy, and others suggest realities which could be but are not actually present.”
Dr. Getty began his career as a professor of psychology, focusing in sensation and perception. He has studied photography since 1977 with help from friend and mentor John Rountree. He and his wife, Dr. Cara-lin Getty, often take pictures together and have a mutual appreciation of the visual arts.
The Upstairs Gallery is located in the Williams Brice Edwards Administration Building on the USC Sumter campus. Hours for viewing are 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday with the exception of state holidays.
