January 2017 - Featured Gallery Artist
Lights! Camera! Paint!
On exhibit from January 1 – January 31
A collection of paintings assembled to reflect my lifelong interest in lights, lamps, and lighthouses. Having worked as an educator for over 40 years, my chances to visit coastal lights and cities boasting architectural light clusters were limited. But since retirement, I have had the opportunity to do some traveling, and from my camera to paper emerged a variety of images depicting both antique and modern light structures.
Whether an Irish lamp festooned with shamrocks or a pagoda lighthouse along the Yangtze River, a pair of burnished copper lamps in France or a quintet of lamps in Spain, I have indulged my interest and taken many photographs which have served as source material for this collection. Of course, our iconic lighthouses at Morris and Sullivan’s Island are included, as is a flickering gas lamp from downtown Charleston.The entire collection has been painted in watercolor, my preferred medium. The show includes originals, prints, note cards, and miniatures. You are invited to join us as we celebrate LIGHT on January 6, 2017.
Please join us for the opening reception (which is free to the public) on Friday, January 6, 2017 from 5pm until 8pm at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery,160 East Bay Street, Charleston, S.C.
