Christopher Wice

January 6 - 30, 2017

Shot in 2016 in Portland, Michigan, a small town nestled between Lansing and Grand Rapids, the photographs featured in this exhibit convey the quiet setting of this old farming community.


Chris Wice is a local photographer and a recent transplant from Michigan. Growing up in an artistic household, Wice searched for his space into adulthood. He began photographing his surroundings to tell the rich history of his home state visually. Just outside of Lansing, where the city meets the country, Wice found his voice. His work began with dynamic wildlife shots, and has ventured into landscape and architecture more recently. Wice’s work has exhibited in the Lansing Art Gallery (Michigan). His piece, “Dancing Downies” won first place in the juried Time|Place show at the Lansing Art Gallery. This exhibition marks his first show in the south.

Karin Schact

March 2 - 30, 2017

In this series, Karin Schact combines abstracting clouds as a backdrop for studies from life using acrylic paint.


The techniques employed by Schact change from series to series, sometimes dramatically. With this series, Karin worked to combine more abstract shapes with organic forms.

Karin Schact was born in London, and spent her formative years on San Diego. She moved to North Carolina to attend Queens College in Charlotte in 1982. Upon finishing her undergraduate degree in Creative Art at UNC-Charlotte, she earned her Master's in Fine Art at the Savannah College of Art and Design. She has exhibited in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Oregon.

Karin is the recipient of Emerging and Individual Artist Grants from North Carolina and Georgia.

May 2 - 30, 2017

Freestyle features works by art students enrolled in watercolor and wet medium painting classes at the Fewell Park Recreation Center. The varied visual imageries of bicycles have been created over the past 12 months by students of Bradley Sabelli and Herb Dumaresq in celebration of the upcoming UCI BMX World Championship. In preparing for this exhibit, the Fewell Park art instructors dared the students to be inventive with the theme. As one will discover, such inventiveness brings diverse creativity to the canvas!


Fewell Park is one of several Recreation Centers in Rock Hill that provide a host of both outdoor and indoor activities to the community. Situated on 10.2 acres with amenities that are used for programs and events for all ages, Fewell Park is a great place to hit a tennis ball or to enjoy a picnic while watching the kids on the playground. A vibrant educational facility plays host to a wide variety of indoor activities, including everything from art to yoga.
