What’s New at The Bascom?
Bascom Resident Artists Vicki Provost and Grant Benoit.

Where can you see artwork and find some of the best emerging artists in the region?  At The Bascom in Highlands in January and February!

There will be not one, not two, but three exhibits at The Bascom, January through March, that spotlight Regional Artists.

The first exhibit opens January 13 and features a collaboration focusing on memory between Bascom Resident Artists Grant Benoit and Vicki Provost.  Grant, a contemporary artist who works in printmaking and sculpture will create an installation inspired by Vicki’s photographs. 

The second exhibit also opens January 13 and will feature a site-specific installation by Bascom Winter Resident Artist, Kymberly Day, a Master of Fine Arts student at Clemson University. She’ll be working in the Loft Gallery during her residency as she creates the piece.

The third exhibit opens on January 20. The Fourth Annual Western Carolina University Master of Fine Arts group exhibit is known for delivering cutting edge contemporary craft and conceptual art from emergent and early career artists.  This year’s class will once again have the opportunity to exhibit their theses projects in the Bunzl Gallery at The Bascom.

The Bascom will host a reception celebrating all of the artists on Friday, February 9, from 5:00 P.M. to 6:30 P.M.  There is never an admission fee to see the exhibits and the reception is free and open to the public.
