“All Creatures Great and Small: Wildlife Drawings by Citadel Cadets” is an exhibition currently on view in the front lobby of the main branch of the Charleston County Public Library on the peninsula.
This exhibition showcases artwork by 14 cadets selected from Prof. Rick Sargent’s popular drawing and wildlife drawing classes.
Cadets used charcoal or pen and ink on toned paper to draw a variety of animals from a bear to a butterfly.
The exhibit was curated by Sargent, a Fine Arts Visiting Professor with The Citadel School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and The Citadel Director of Fine Arts, Tiffany Silverman.
The library is located at 68 Calhoun Street, with free parking for visitors in a garage being the library. Operating hours are listed at this link, but may be subject to change due to the pandemic.
Due to COVID restrictions, rather than having a formal exhibition opening, there will be an informal drop-in on Wednesday, January 26 from 5-7 p.m. in the library lobby, during which Sargent, Silverman and some of the exhibiting cadets will be available to answer questions about the artworks.
