When visiting the SSC Art Gallery, visitors will get to view King’s series of abstract conceptual mixed-media paintings and cyano-types masterpieces. These works of art have a free form abstract style. Some art may have hidden objects and elements in the work. King forces the viewer to analyze the piece to see what he or she will notice. Viewers will notice some clues inside the artwork based on the title of the piece. It is always best to always read the artwork title first before viewing it. Some of King’s works maybe for sell. If interested in any art piece see Art Gallery Curator for more details.
When visiting the SSC Art Gallery, there are several prohibited items, which are large bags, backpacks, video/still cameras, selfie sticks, food and drinks, etc. Also, it is encouraged to donate to the monetary fund to keep this art gallery running into the future.
