The Bascom Winter Resident Artist Program, better known as the W.R.A.P., calls on Students or Faculty from the surrounding universities to submit site-specific installation proposals for The Bascom’s unique and beautiful Thompson Gallery.
Emergence celebrates the role of teaching and mentoring in artistic development, highlighting works by faculty mentors their students. The 34 pairs of artists presented in this exhibition represent 20 institutions of higher education from the Southeast. Their works represent a wide variety of approaches to subject matter, innovative use of materials, and mastery of traditional mediums being taught and practiced in contemporary studio programs.
A free public reception will be held Thursday, February 23 at 5pm at The Bascom to celebrate our winter exhibitions.

Steady Hand String Band is an old time Appalachian string band focused on rip roaring fiddle tunes, old country classics, and your favorite hits from the 1800s. Steady Hand began in Charleston, SC, where they honed their traditional sound.
Their passion for reviving traditional music is matched by a young, dynamic energy that breathes new life into classic tunes once played throughout the southern Appalachian region.
