Charleston, South Carolina.– The Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston School of the Arts is pleased to present “Aggie Zed: Keeper’s Keep” on view at the institute from January 20th through March 10th 2012. This exhibition is comprised of sculpture, installation, paintings, drawings, and sketchbooks that chart Aggie Zed’s unique working methods in a variety of media. Born in Charleston and raised among farm animals on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, Zed graduated from the University of South Carolina with a BFA in painting and sculpture. Shortly thereafter, she moved to Richmond and, later, Gordonsville, Virginia, where she lives and works today. Zed’s studio practice is eclectic and varied. Often starting with images from her sketchbook, she may develop some of these concepts into paintings and others into sculptural tableaux or installations.
