For Those of Us Still Living Art Exhibit

August 14, 2023

The Marshall University School of Art and Design will present a new exhibition, For Those of Us Still Living, featuring the artworks of artist Jim Arendt, which will be on view Aug. 14 through Sept. 7 in the Charles W. and Norma C. Carroll Gallery, located in the Visual Arts Center at 927 3rd Ave. The exhibition breathes new life into discarded denim, with which Arendt has created portraits exploring the intersections of labor, industry and human narratives.

“Arendt’s unique ability to transform an everyday, accessible fabric into extraordinary portraits challenges our perceptions of material and leaves us with a desire to know more about the people portrayed in the works,” Gallery Director Courtney Chapman said.

Arendt is an associate professor of visual arts and gallery director at Coastal Carolina University. He received his master’s in fine arts from the University of Carolina and continues to exhibit his work nationally and internationally.
