ELEMENTAL Art and Book Head for Historic Orangeburg

9/30/2008 11:32:00 AM

by Aberjhani


Exhibit and book signing slated for Orangeburg State College.



 

Savannah, Georgia (USA)––A countless number of museum-goers and art lovers from across the globe viewed artist Luther E. Vann’s acclaimed ELEMENTAL exhibit at the Telfair Museum Jepson Center for the Arts in Savannah, Georgia, throughout summer 2008 and more will have an opportunity to see his work in a new exhibit October 9 at Orangeburg State College in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

           
In addition, Vann will autograph copies of ELEMENTAL, The Power of Illuminated Love, a collectible gift book featuring more than 60 color reproductions of his art with corresponding essays and poetry by the critically acclaimed author Aberjhani, at the university on October 10. Since its release in May, the book has been a bestseller at the Jepson Center Gift Shop, where Vann and Aberjhani have had several signings, most notably those presented as part of the
TelfairMuseum’s Sunday Gospel Brunch.

           
Orangeburg in 1960 was the site of one of the most important demonstrations in
United States civil rights history. There, some 1,000 student marched through the city’s downtown area in protest against racial segregation. More than 350 were arrested and placed in an open-air stockade where they stood in the rain, prayed, and sang the “Star Spangled Banner.”


The Orangeburg exhibit comes on the heels of the September 14 finale of Vann’s
JepsonCenter for the Arts show and only a few weeks before more book signing dates, from October 31 to November 2, at Savannah’s Diaspora Marketplace. The latter event will be held in conjunction with The Big Show Savannah, an entertainment and marketing extravaganza described as “reaching beyond borders to showcase the best of all cultures, customs and traditions.”


A growing demand for Vann’s work has made 2008 a very busy year for the artist. “With the publication of ELEMENTAL and back to back exhibitions, this really is a great year for me as an artist but also especially for the art itself,” said Vann. “The fact that people are discovering the art and interacting with it in ways that hold deep meaning for them is very special.”


While Vann’s most recent show at the
TelfairMuseumJepsonCenter may have closed, one of the works from it, entitled “Summer in Eden,” was actually added to the institution’s permanent collection. The addition now brings to three the total number of works by Vann owned by the TelfairMuseum, one of the oldest public art museums in the United States. A reproduction of “Summer in Eden” is featured on page 119 of ELEMENTAL (first edition) opposite the poem “Sunrise Elegy.”
