Ment Nelson: New Works

February 7 - 28
Opening Reception: Friday, February 7, 5 - 8pm

"Living in rural South Carolina, the narrative has always been about getting away from this place. I want to reverse that." Ment recently told Charleston Magazine. "I can’t dictate what people take away from my work, but I can make sure what I’m creating comes from a genuine, sincere place. Ultimately, I want people to view my work, and me as an artist, and realize that location doesn’t necessarily determine potential."
