701 CCA Prize 2012 Exhibition 

When: Nov. 1-Dec. 16 2012
When South Carolina artist Tonya Gregg visited a small gallery up at Lake Norman in 2009, I was thoroughly captivated. Not only were her works vibrant and pleasing to the eye, but they brought a sense of diversity and fostered engaging conversations among those who attended the opening reception. Gregg, who continues to paint about race, class, gender and identity issues within African-American culture, is currently getting recognition for her talents at 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia. She's one of three finalists showcasing works in the 701 CCA Prize 2012 Exhibition. In Gregg's "Watch Me Shrink" painting, she confronts femininity, sexuality, and body image head-on. It's worth the drive. Other artists featured in the exhibit include Jim Arendt and James Busby.
