Introduction Neely is an interdisciplinary artist based in Spartanburg, S.C. He has envisioned and collaborated to create community-based art projects including the Hidden Voices book project, the Artist-In-Transit project, the Transparent Studio, www.NotSoSpartan.com, the Spark! Puppet Parade, and the Faces of Work project. Neely was named an Unsung Hero in 2005, by DHEC for his artistic and editorial work with the Hidden Voices project. His visual art was selected to be featured on the walking map of Spartanburg for 2008-2009. In his studio, Neely experiments with traditional materials and found objects to create visual art. His creative practice has ranged from documentary video, performance art, playwriting, personal essay, poetry, Web design, and experimental pedagogies. He considers his time in the studio to be a manual act of contemplative prayer. Neely currently serves as the Assistant Dean and Coordinator for Studio Art at Wofford College.
