MEET THE MAKER | Elizabeth Bick
Tuesday, February 15, 2022
5:30 - 7:00 PM
Halsey Institute galleries + Zoom
Join us for the next Meet the Maker featuring upcoming artist Elizabeth Bick who will exhibit at the Halsey Institute in early spring 2023. 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 30 people in the galleries for this event and will also stream the talk over 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.

Elizabeth Bick is a photographer and a new Studio Art faculty member at the College of Charleston, where she is the Area Head for Photography. Bick’s photography projects are influenced by her training in classical and modern dance. In scenes set against backdrops of buildings many of these projects cast pedestrians on the streets of New York City as unintentional subjects in a larger choreography of human movements. Her upcoming exhibition at the Halsey Institute will feature a selection from her many diverse bodies of work.
