Though beauty is in the ordinary, we often need help tuning into it. Drawing our eyes to the inspiration amidst familiarity, works from Hannah Cole, Jodi Hays, and Celia Reisman reimagine our everyday environments. Curated by artist Mark Brosseau, this collection presented at the Greenville Center for Creative Arts boasts dynamic imagery and bold color. On display in the center’s second gallery is a collection from Siobhan McBride, who paints anxiety and heaviness into typically familiar, comfortable spaces. Her moody gouache paintings call attention to crevices of unseen reality. Both in technique and conception, these galleries “subvert our expectations,” says Mark Brosseau. “This exhibit is about digging deeper and taking notice of things you would normally overlook.”

In Front of Your Eyes, presented by the Greenville Center for Creative Arts and artist-run collective Tiger Strikes Asteroid Greenville, runs October 4–November 27. Greenville Center for Creative Arts, 101 Abney St, Greenville. Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm; Sat, 11am–3pm; closed Sunday.
