‘Spanish Colonial, Religious Art’ on exhibit in South Carolina

Selected works from Robicsek collection to be shown through April 7
SPARTANBURG, SC–The arrival of the Spanish to the Americas from the 15th century through the 19th century introduced Spanish beliefs and traditions to the regions, creating a new artistic tradition that evolved with the convergence of cultures. This influence can be seen through selected works on exhibit at Wofford College, on loan from the collection of Dr. Francis and Mrs. Lilly Robicsek of Charlotte, N.C. The exhibition, “Spanish Colonial and Religious Art,” in the Richardson Family Art Museum in the Rosalind Sallenger Richardson Center for the Arts, “offers a unique opportunity to appreciate paintings, sculptures and silver pieces from three centuries (c. 1600-1800) of colonial Americas,” says Dr. Youmi Efurd, curator of the art museum.
