The Steven F. Gately Continuous exhibit is on display in the Special Exhibits Gallery from July 26 through January 22, 2023.
During his accomplished career, South Carolina artist Steven F. Gately (1946 – 2021) explored modernist compositions in a wide diversity of media through a command of art’s fundamental elements and principles.
Using a selection of paintings, collages, drawings, and mixed media works, this exhibit presents the common themes and subtle continuities of Gately’s visual language throughout decades of his art.
He was the subject of over twenty solo exhibitions during his lifetime. His work is represented in the Gibbes Museum of Art, Charleston; The Columbia Museum of Art, Columbia; the State Art Collection of South Carolina; and various other public and private collections.
Steven F. Gately was C.B. & Marlene Askins Professor of Art and Coordinator of Visual Arts Programs at Francis Marion University, where he taught for 48 years.
