APRIL FEATURED ARTIST - David Scheffler
The Charleston Artist Guild announces David Scheffler as the featured artist for the month of April. His exhibit entitled "Color It Charleston" will showcase the colorful streetscapes of Charleston. An opening reception is planned for Friday, April 4th from 5pm to 8pm at the CAG Gallery located at 160 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC. The reception is free and open to the public.
David's lifelong hobby of photography developed into a serious art form when he retired from the corporate world in 2009. After growing up in Southern Ohio where exposure to art was limited, the ability to appreciate the world as a subject for fine art took hold through his education and travels.
He has continued to further his creative evolution with workshops and courses at several institutions. He enjoys capturing streetscapes, both natural and man-made. "There seems to be a never-ending stream of subjects. I find myself making mental notes of photo opportunities while driving, biking or walking so I can then return to the scene to get the ideal shot."
Enter the visual world of David Scheffler with a visit to The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during business hours, Mon-Sun 11am - 6pm from April 1 - April 30. His work can also be found at ctsqarts.com
MARCH FEATURED ARTIST - Susan Budnick
The Charleston Artist Guild announces Susan Budnick as the featured artist for the month of March. Her photography show "Local Exposure" will be on display from March 1 thru March 31. The opening reception is planned for Friday, March 7th from 5pm to 8pm at the CAG Gallery located at 160 East Bay Street. The reception is free and open to the public.
“Local Exposure” is a collection of the diverse work Susan has created as a self-taught photographer who was so impacted by the natural, local beauty of the Low Country when she moved here in 1997 that she felt compelled to capture that beauty, especially as she began witnessing the encroachment of development upon it. She was particularly struck by the light in the Low Country and how it plays on the landscape, making the exact same location look so different from hour to hour, day to day and month to month. As her work began taking her downtown, she learned how dramatically that light enhanced Charleston ’s architectural beauty as well, and often created interesting shadows and abstract lines, which Susan has also spent time capturing.
All photographs are shot with a vintage 35 mm camera without any artificial lighting, filters, polarizers or computer manipulation of the content. Susan wants the viewer’s experience to approximate what she saw and felt during the creation of her photographs. To experience the local beauty of Charleston through the eyes of Susan Budnick, visit the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during the month of March.
