The Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County is responding to claims of censorship after the owner of a Columbia art gallery issued a press release following the opening of an exhibit in Camden. “Under pressure from at least one board member and supporters, the leadership of the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County … insisted (Oct. 22) that two paintings in its current exhibition be removed from the show,” Wim Roefs, owner of Columbia’s if Art Gallery, claimed in a press release issued Friday afternoon. The paintings are by Columbia artists Michaela Pilar Brown and Tonya Gregg as part of the Body & Soul: Michaela Pilar Brown, Tonya Gregg & Leo Twiggs” exhibition.
