With over 50 years of dedicated art-making, David Zacharias’s Visual Memoirs will include numerous investigations or bodies of work, in various categories and media in the Milliken Art Gallery. Zacharias will exhibit paintings, sculptures and ceramics in an exhibition that is not technically a retrospective. Four installations, in their own space, will feature Visual Memoirs with some pieces in installations completed in the early 70s into the mid 80s and early 90s. Throughout the gallery are lacquer base enamel paintings on masonite from the 80s, that were chronologically followed by a series of stainless steel sculptures, paintings on canvas from 2012 to present and an array of investigations in clay, some of which are ongoing.
David Zacharias’s first major was Pre-Veterinary Medicine at Clemson University in 1968. Changing to Studio Art resulted in transferring to the University of South Carolina-Columbia, completing a BFA and later an MFA, both with concentrations in sculpture and ceramics. In the 1970s, Converse College offered a full-time position teaching all levels of undergraduate ceramics and other subjects. Zacharias’s art production has been steady in addition to his exhibition schedule with 23 one-person exhibitions, over 100 group exhibitions and over 70 juried competitions. Produced work has been in paintings, sculptures, ceramics, installations, and performance art.
David Zacharias’s Visual Memoirs will run from November 5-30, 2020. Zacharias will present an online discussion and Gallery Talk in November.
The exhibition is located in the Milliken Art Gallery and is free of charge. Gallery hours are Sundays from 2-5 pm, Monday through Friday from 9 am-5 pm. The Gallery is closed during school holidays.
