Monday - Saturday, 11am – 4pm
Open Thursdays until 7pm
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 an intimate setting. 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.”
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 our Development Coordinator Selynne Ancheta at AnchetaSM@cofc.edu or (843) 953-5652.
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM (presentation begins at 6:00 PM)

Join us for the next Meet the Maker featuring upcoming artist Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez who will exhibit at the Halsey Institute in summer 2022 with Pinturas de Casta and the Construction of American Identity. Meet the Makers are quarterly get-togethers for members at the Postmodernist level and above to meet an artist and learn about their creative process within an intimate setting. Members are asked to bring “a bottle of wine and an open mind.”
We are able to host a maximum of 50 people in the galleries for this event and will also stream the tour to Zoom for those that would like to join in virtually. The limited capacity means we will need to require an RSVP to claim a spot in the galleries or receive the Zoom link and passcode. RSVP to halseyRSVP@cofc.edu to reserve a space. Not a member yet? Not a problem! Find out more about the benefits of membership here.

Nancy Friedemann-Sánchez is a Colombo-American, mid-career artist with an interdisciplinary practice. She grew up in Colombia as the child of a Colombian and a United States citizen and migrated to the US as an adult. Her art is about the curious and intense experience of having physically migrated, yet still having a piece of herself rooted in Colombia. She is creating an intersectional feminist visual novel that is a multifaceted project comprised of paintings, sculptures, objects, and mixed media that together—and in different voices—weave a synchronicity of dialogues, passages, and punctuations about hybridity and cultural ownership.
