The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston is presenting an exhibition of all large assemblage pieces by Butch Anthony titled Inside/Out. Anthony is an artist and contributor to Auburn’s Rural Studio program. The exhibition is on view from Jan. 17–Feb. 29 at the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art. 

As a multi-faceted self-taught artist, Anthony creates works that investigate and appropriate images from the American vernacular. His practice includes painting X-ray like skeletons on top of antique portraits in elaborate, often gilded frames. Though Anthony’s work emanates from the folk art or vernacular idiom, his works are unmistakably original in concept and execution.
