University of South Carolina Beaufort Studio Art Program and the USCB Art Gallery will be exhibiting the work of artist and sculptor, Matt Toole.

He will showcase prototypes, models, and images of the original performance featured at the Sixth International Conference on Contemporary Cast Iron Art, held in Kidwelly, Wales, during July of 2010.

Toole will give an hourlong talk, followed by a reception, on August 25, at 6 p.m.  His work will be on exhibit in the USCB Center for the Arts from July 18 until September 2. The general public is encouraged to attend the talk, reception, and exhibition, which are all free of charge.

“Kinship: A Tribute of Iron” explores the concept associated with an evolution of human creative endeavors, building upon what has been previously learned and is passed down through generations, resulting in accumulated knowledge. This tribute celebrates the exchange of knowledge represented by the usage of cast iron. It is funded through a Presidential Fellowship for Faculty Development from the Savannah College of Art and Design.
