Two years of work culminated Thursday with the unveiling of six arts projects at the new Family Trust Center on White Street.

Family Trust Federal Credit Union commissioned five Winthrop University students to create art that reflects the heritage of Rock Hill and the credit union for its new headquarters at Knowledge Park.

Working in metal, fabric, paper, porcelain, wood and “found objects” the artists created “edgy” art that impressed Lee Gardner, president and chief executive officer of the credit union.

Artists and their works are:

▪ Chelsea Arthur, “Materialization of Coinciding,” a series of circular works of “found objects.”

▪ Nicole Davenport, “Shifting Shadows, Constant Care,” a steel and glass work that will create a series of shadows throughout the day.

▪ Meredith Dallas, “Thread, Time and Line,” a metal bike rack that mimics the shape of a piece of wind-blown fabric.

▪ Samantha Oliver, “Our Fine Community,” a porcelain and stainless steel map of York County.

▪ Christopher Smalls, “Transitions in Blue,” a multi-layered, multi-colored steel sculpture.

▪ Kaitlyn Walters, “Renew and Restore,” two pieces made from wood and railroad ties.
