For cadets in Instructor Tiffany Silverman’s art appreciation and photography classes, art is not just created by people from ages past. Instead, working professional artists come to The Citadel and share their skills and passion to bring a fresh, contemporary point of view to the study of art.

“Outside Perspective,” an exhibition that opened this week in Capers Hall at The Citadel, features the work of these guest artists, including painter Karen Ann Myers, combat photojournalist Stacy Pearsall, architect Sandy Logan, mixed-media painter Christopher Murphy, and printmaker Conrad Guevara.

Each of the artists included in the exhibition have led exercises that give the cadets hands-on experiences in a wide range of methods and materials such as acrylic painting, silk-screening, woodblock printing, figure drawing, architectural design, multimedia collage, and all genres of photography from documentary to nature. These interactions encourage a broader appreciation of the fine arts and may spark lifelong interests that continue beyond the gates.

The exhibition is open through Oct. 11 and is free and open to the public.

The exhibition is made possible through the support of the artists who have donated their time, from the Brawley Fine Arts Fund, The Citadel’s School of Humanities and Social Sciences, the Charleston Center for Photography, Redux Contemporary Art Center, and SCOOP Studios.
