It offers an educational opportunity to our students and community through exhibitions, visiting artist lectures, and artist workshops. New exhibits are on view every six weeks during the Spring and Fall semesters. The Student Art Show, held each April, features work created by students in the studio courses during the academic year. Funding for the gallery is provided by the SCC Foundation.

Dewey Ward * Woodworker, November 17-December 17, 2014

In only a few short years, Mr. Ward has turned a long career in contracting into the elegant, disciplined vessels you will see on display in the Wyche Gallery.  Mr. Ward is a native of Columbus County, and he uses re-purposed wood from the local area.   Each piece is designed using a variety of woodturning and inlay techniques that bring out the finest characteristics of the wood.  Meet the artist and view the full collection of his recent studio work.  The opening reception will be a wonderful opportunity to hear the stories behind each piece of wood he has crafted.
