Greenville, SC – Greenville Center for Creative Arts (GCCA) is excited to announce the opening of their Main Gallery exhibition, Sight(s) Specific. The exhibition features the work of acclaimed artists Charles Geiger, Julia Morrisroe, & Meredith Stoudenmire. The exhibition opens with a First Friday reception from 6:00 – 9:00 pm on Friday, April 1st and continues until May 25th, 2022. The exhibition will also be open during the First Friday on May 6th, 2022. Sight(s) Specific is sponsored by TOWN magazine. 

In Sight(s) Specific, artists Charles Geiger, Julia Morrisroe, and Meredith Stoudenmire investigate ideas ranging from narratives associated with monuments & contemporary events to the thrill of adventure. Through abstracted forms, environmental and social issues precipitate to create conversation surrounding our past and our future. Charles Geiger uses abstracted botanical forms in his paintings that merge with social and environmental issues. Julia Morrisroe’s paintings examine the purpose of public monuments and who they served. Through imagery of volcanoes, Meredith Stoudenmire’s paintings explore adventure and risk taking.

Geiger grew up in Charleston, South Carolina and currently lives and works full-time in New York’s Hudson Valley region. He studied art at East Carolina University and Computer Science at Millersville University. Much of his art is informed by science concepts which are interlaced with current environmental and societal stresses. A recent exhibition of his paintings on climate change at NYU Abu Dhabi, U.A.E. was underwritten in part by the Rachel Carson Center, New York University Arts and Humanities Art & Art History, and eARThumanities.
