SECCA to Present Exhibition Featuring Paul Travis Phillips
The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art is presenting an exhibition featuring artwork by Paul Travis Phillips, the third artist in SECCA’s new curated sale series Southern Idiom. The exhibition title, see above, is the phonetical spelling of “such and such”—a term used to refer vaguely to a person, thing, or idea that does not need to be [or is not possible to be] specified. An opening reception will be held on Friday, March 23, 2018 from 6 to 7:30 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public. Phillips’ artwork will be available for purchase and will remain on display through April 22.
