Meet the Maker is a unique opportunity for Halsey Institute Members at the Postmodernist and above levels to meet an artist and learn about their creative process within the intimate setting of the galleries. These quarterly get-togethers create a casual environment in which members connect with each other and the featured artist over wine and heavy hors-d’oeuvres. The Maker is often an upcoming or past exhibiting artist at the Halsey Institute. He or she will give a presentation describing their inspiration, passions, process, and, ultimately, final result. Members are asked to bring “a bottle of wine and an open mind.”
 
All Meet the Maker events take place at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art unless otherwise noted. Join or renew at the Postmodernist membership level here to be invited to these events. 

Invitations to each Meet the Maker are sent via email. For questions or more information please contact us at halsey@cofc.edu or 843-953-5652.

Coulter Fussell’s early-developed arts view perceives craft and other arts as indistinguishable from one another. Painting, sculpture, and textile work are one solitary entity in her mind. From youth, the combination developed into an unintentional mash-up, resulting in quilts and textile works that defy expectations of the medium. Fussell relies on the no-holds-barred nature of contemporary painting rules to free her compositions from the constraints of pattern. In turn, she simultaneously relies on the strict discipline of traditional craftwork to act as a self-editing tool.
