The first five paintings of Portraits of American Teens were a perfect fit for The Warehouse Theatre’s lobby. Here are some photos from my artist reception. Had a great time meeting new Greenville folks and catching up with friends. What a nice surprise when my oldest daughter who lives out of town showed up for the reception.
Packed up the painting series “Portraits of American Teens” yesterday for the first exhibit at the Warehouse Theatre. I hope my visitors don’t touch because the paint is still wet although all the hard work paid off. I finished the painting of Violet just in time. In fact, I had to hang the show on Monday and was still painting on Saturday and would have been painting on Sunday if it wasn’t Mother’s Day. Yikes!! Talk about cutting it close.
I think they look great in the space. Don’t miss the artist reception next Friday night, May 26th at 6 pm. Hope to see you there.
I am thrilled to be one of the accepted artists from 9 different southern states to be part of Artfields 2017. This was also the first year I applied, so it was doubly wonderful when I got the news. My painting “Francesca” will be exhibited in the Seven Monogram Boutique which is located at 130 East Main Street. If you don’t know about Artfields, it is one of the premier Art Shows in South Carolina to honor artists of the Southeast with a weeks worth of celebration, events and competitions from April 21st – 29th. It is held in a the small town of Lake City, where the whole town basically becomes a living gallery.
Hope you have time to check it out!
One of my goals this year was to start to create a presence in Greenville, SC, my current home town. After living here for three years, I have done a few juried shows here and there, but that’s about it. It was time! No, that’s not true . . . it was overdue!
I have been looking for a place where my work could be seen year round, preferably in downtown Greenville. I have been searching for gallery representation for a while and finally found my answer, the Artist Guild Gallery of Greenville and it’s right on North Main; 200 N. Main to be exact, right next to the Hyatt. It’s a good fit for me right now. All of the artists are juried in and we share in the running and decision making of the gallery. I am looking forward to getting to know this friendly and eclectic group of artists.
Two weeks ago it became official. Artwork was hung, pieces labeled, and the name tag was placed. Hope you will check it out. This is just one more step in creating roots here in South Carolina.
