Artspace 506 in North Myrtle Beach is pleased to announce the opening of the 2016 season with Remember Everything, a solo exhibition of works by Yvette Cummings.  The exhibit opens with a reception for the artist on Thursday, March 3 from 5-8 p.m. and continues throughApril 30, 2016.

Remember Everything includes a variety of works by the artist:  paintings, mixed media works, cut paper collage, and installation, all of which explore memory and the narratives that evolve from memories; many painful and dramatic, some reflective and benign, some fearful, others joyful.  These works reveal enigmatic and highly charged narrative episodes, mysterious encounters, emotion and melodrama.

In these works Cummings shifts her working manner and medium – from loose painting to tight painting and then back; or painting and cut paper collage, then then installation and back to painting.  These shifts lend the exhibition the sense of an evolving mood.  Shown here is the cleverness of an artist whose exquisite painting, cut paper collage and compositional ruptures express deeper emotional ruptures, some particularly rooted in the long term effects of childhood abuse.

Yvette Cummings lives in Conway, South Carolina where she devotes her time to her studio work, community development,  and family.  Cummings received her Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Cincinnati’s School of Design, Art, Architecture, and Planning. While enrolled at DAAP she was director of the 810 Gallery, interned at the Contemporary Art Center of Cincinnati, and was the recipient of the Wolfstien Travel Fellowship to Spain.  Following her graduate work, Cummings became an instructor for the University of South Carolina Department of Art.  She was awarded the Stephen J. Dalton Teacher of the year from USC University in 2011. Her work has been exhibited  in multiple group and solo exhibitions throughout the south and midwest. Her work can be found in both public and private collections and has been featured in the 701 Center for Contemporary Art 2015 South Carolina Biennial in Columbia, SC as well as Contemporary South at Visual Art Exchange in Raleigh, NC.
