The Quench Project and the Mire of Desire

When: Thu., June 15, 5-8 p.m. and Mondays-Fridays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through Aug. 10 2017

Portraits don’t always have to be of dead European royalty. That’s the idea behind Robert Maniscalco’s portrait series, The Quench Project, which focuses on portraits of people who aren’t traditionally portrait subjects. The Quench Project and the Mire of Desire explores human longing and struggles to fulfill desires. The main theme? Human resiliency. “Robert is a storyteller,” says Fabulon director Susan Irish. “His portraits may seem Charlestonian or like typical commissioned faces, but at second glance there is a deeper meaning and provocative story.” Refreshments will be served at the opening and the exhibit runs until August 10.
