Enduring Spirit : The Art of Tyrone Geter March 3 - June 11, 2017

“Throughout my career, the human form has been the mechanism that makes it possible for me to speak my truth about my life, my beliefs, and the varied and colorful histories of my people.” -Tyrone Geter

Enduring Spirit : The Art of Tyrone Geter

March 3 - June 11, 2017

Columbia African-American artist Tyrone Geter debuts an all-new series of large-scale charcoal and pastel drawings in this one-person show of approximately two dozen works. Geter’s work is heavily influenced by his mother, who grew up in the early 20th century amid racial discrimination, poverty, and illiteracy. Through her love, compassion, and desire to do the right thing, she passed her legacy on to her children. Geter uses that legacy in his work, saying, “Throughout my career, the human form has been the mechanism that makes it possible for me to speak my truth about my life, my beliefs, and the varied and colorful histories of my people.” 

Learn more about the exhibition with our multimedia tour featuring in-depth discussions with experts from both inside and outside the art world.

Hello Tyrone,

I really like your work. We at Florida A&M University have one of your works in the Art Department lobby.  I recently retired from FAMU but when I worked there I worked adjunct with the Art Department. I was the Director of the Instructional Technology Center. I am from Columbia and I am a good friend of Roscoe Wilson. Maybe I will meet with you when I am in Columbia.
