Some art shows are thrown together, others are carefully woven. Curated by Mark Sloan, director of the Halsey Institute, Mend is held fast by a seam symbolizing the fragility of life in general and the female body in particular.

The show’s focal point is an installation called “Pentagram of Loss.” It’s an attempt by artist Pinky/MM Bass to come to terms with the deaths of five close friends and relatives in five years. She uses the five sides of her pentagram to mark each person’s passing.


Richard McMahan Invitational Exhibition: ‘Mini Museum’

Wed May 14, 2008
Charleston City Paper

What is it? A vast collection of the world’s finest art. In miniature. Organized by the Halsey Institute and exhibited at the Addlestone Library, the work has been preserved and displayed by students at the Clemson Architecture Center in Charleston. McMahan has been creating these diminutive nuggets for 18 years. In a great big world, it’s nice to appreciate the small things. Here’s to McMahan’s curious trade: We predict a huge reception.
