Meyer Vogl | Pink Street

Pink Street, a Group Exhibition

March 1 – March 29

Opening: Friday, March 1, 5 – 8pm

 

At the corner of Meeting and Queen Streets in downtown Charleston are four buildings — an antique shop, a hotel, a law firm, and an art gallery. Three of these buildings, though different in many ways, share a common characteristic: They are pink. The fourth, non-pink building is us: the art gallery. We are Meyer Vogl Gallery, and our building is not pink.

 

"In March, we’ll fill the gallery with brilliant splashes of pink to pay homage to our rosy little intersection," says gallery director Katie Geer. For the group exhibition Pink Street, we have tapped three gallery artists to play with pink: Marissa Vogl, Anne Blair Brown, and Carrie Beth Waghorn. The exhibition will include Vogl’s abstract paintings, tinged with shades of pink; Brown’s brushy work, all glowing with pink underpainting; and Waghorn’s black-and-white figurative work, enhanced with slight but powerful pops of pink.

oin us this Friday, March 1, 2019 from 6pm to 8pm for the artist opening reception of Nurtured, Bonded & Spiritual: The Artistry of April Harrison. The exhibit will feature 22 new original works by Harrison and will run through the entire month of March. 

April Harrison, of Greenville, SC, is a self-taught artist who by her own admission is "merely a vessel being utilized to instinctively create narrative, sentiment and observation". She is known for her "With Closed Eyes" style and imagery where the viewer is taked on a "journey into a place where time stands still, and life's special moments, felt by special caresses, tender touches, and fond memories, transport you into a state of inner spirituality, focusing on the nurtured, bonded and spiritual". Her work is in the public collections of Vanderbilt University, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, the Atlanta Housing Authority, and the Erskine University Museum, and in many private collections including that of Whoopi Goldberg, Honorable Ruth Simmons, Honorable Andrew Young, Jesse L. Martin and Shaun Robinson. 

Her work has also been featured on the set of several well known television shows and feature films. Most recently, her work is a part of the living room set of Nickelodeon’s K.C. Undercover featuring teen acting and singing sensation, Zendaya and actor, Kadeem Hardison. April recently illustrated her first children’s book written by legendary children’s book author, Patricia McKissack. “What is Given from the Heart,” was released in Jan. 2019 and has already receiving rave reviews.

Neema Gallery | Book Signing Sunday

Join us for weekend’s edition of Book Signing Sunday at Neema Gallery and meet children’s book illustrator and Neema Gallery artist, April Harrison. This event is FREE and open to the public and will run from 3pm to 5pm. Copies of WHAT IS GIVEN FROM THE HEART will be available for purchase for all interested parties and April will be on hand to sign copies.


From three-time Coretta Scott King Award winner and Newbery Honor author Patricia McKissack comes WHAT IS GIVEN FROM THE HEART, McKissack’s final magnificent picture book that is a poignant and uplifting celebration of the joy of giving. “Misery loves company,” Mama says to James Otis. It’s been a rough couple of months for them, but Mama says as long as they have their health and strength, they’re blessed. One Sunday before Valentine’s Day, Reverend Dennis makes an announcement during the service: the Temples have lost everything in a fire, and the church is collecting anything that might be useful to them. 


James thinks hard about what he can add to the Temples’ “love box,” but what does he have worth giving? 

With her extraordinary gift for storytelling, McKissack—with stunning illustrations by Harrison—delivers a touching, powerful tale of compassion and reminds us that what is given from the heart reaches the heart. 

PATRICIA C. McKISSACK is the author of many lauded books for children, including Let’s Clap, Jump, Sing & Shout, a Parents Choice Gold Award winner, a New York Public Library, School Library Journal, and Kirkus Reviews Best Book of the Year, and recipient of three starred reviews; The Dark-Thirty: Southern Tales of the Supernatural, a Newbery Honor Book and Coretta Scott King Award winner, and its companion, Porch Lies: Tales of Slicksters, Tricksters, and Other Wily Characters, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children’s Book; Never Forgotten, a Coretta Scott King Honor book; and The All-I’ll-Ever-Want Christmas Doll, an ALA-ALSC Notable Children’s Book and winner of the Parents Choice Award. Ms. McKissack passed away in 2017. This is her final work. 

APRIL HARRISON is a renowned visual artist born and currently residing in Greenville, South Carolina. Her work appears in the public collections of Vanderbilt University, Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center, the Atlanta Housing Authority, and the Erskine University Museum, and in many private collections. This is her first picture book. Learn more about April Harrison and Neema Gallery atwww.neemagallery.com

Miller Gallery | Tell Me Something

Every artist has their own story to tell, but sometimes colors alone don’t say it loud enough. Language has been used to share ideas and communicate narratives in the visual arts for centuries. Tell Me Something will feature painter Charlotte Filbert, collagist Miles Purvis Daniel, and ceramicist Liv Antonecchia with artwork that includes handwritten stories, quotes, and subtle messages. All naturally inclined to use written text in their work, these three artists harness the power of language to incite humor, convey emotion, or make a call to action.

CHARLESTON ARTIST GUILD | Carmen Osborn

The Charleston Artist Guild is excited to present “The Art of Wander”, a collection of new works by Carmen Osborn. Carmen’s work is an expression of our individual journeys; encounters with the world around us, and the beauty in it. The collection will be on display at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during the month of January.

Carmen Osborn has been drawing since she can remember. Growing up on a farm in the Midwest, her two favorite pastimes were drawing and wandering the countryside. As an adult, she continued to draw and paint, doing portrait commissions in both black and white charcoal and also portraits in oil and acrylic. She then began to experiment with soft pastel and sold her pastel landscapes at juried art festivals, winning awards for many of them over the years.  

Carmen has traveled far beyond her Midwestern home since childhood and uses paint as a way to share not just the visual experience of her wanderings, but also the emotional response these places evoke. She believes her artwork is her most effective method of communication.  Now, based in lovely Charleston, SC, Carmen is making the shift from creating landscapes in pastel, to acrylic.  And of course, the inspiring lowcountry of South Carolina is always a great source of inspiration.

Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 4th, 2019 at the CAG Gallery, from 5-8pm.

Sybil Fix’s Unsliced: Turkeys Off the Plate

Sybil Fix, a Charleston artist and writer, paints birds in order to free them from the invisibility to which they have been relegated by our insatiable appetites and dulled sense of observation.

Her work seeks to highlight and sensitize us to the wonderful presence of birds.  With immediacy and color and what she considers a ‘connection’ to their inner world, Sybil wishes to capture their undying yearning for freedom and their irrepressible charm.  Her paintings, which reveal a deep love of her subject, invite the viewer to consider another being in its innate truth rather than through the lens of human use.

In a world of virtual knowledge, Sybil uses painting to translate the nature she reveres into a concrete presence in our homes and lives.  She works mostly in large scale, adding impact to her bold and colorful work, but her visual language is as piercing as Hemingway’s prose.

In addition to art, Sybil, who grew up in Italy, has worked in a variety of fields, including reporting, translation, public relations, and the teaching of both Italian and French.  She recently published her first book, The Girl from Borgo. Whether painting or writing, her intellect is apparent.

Charleston Artist Guild | Elena Evan

The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is pleased to present Touch of Happiness, featuring the art creations of Elena Evan. Elena is the featured artist for the month of December. The exhibit will run from December 1st through December 31st with an opening reception on Friday, December 7th.

Elena was born and raised in the beautiful city of Athens, Greece, which is renowned for its beauty, art, food and nightlife. Her home was very near where everything began, near the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Later, she was heavily influenced by a group of well-known Greek artists.  She won several awards and accolades from her teachers and in juried art shows in Italy and Greece.  Elena is an abstract artist who moved from Athens to the very beautiful city of Charleston.  The beauty of the city and her memories of her past inspire her to continue her paintings and to dream of her next artwork. 

Elena states, "Painting is an enlargement of my soul and my world.  It gives me timeless and happy moments that make me think, create, and share my passion with other people.  Beauty exists all around us and inspires me, like the beauty in people, in nature, in life, and in different cultures. My imagination and creativity are the things which make me different from other artists.”  Elena uses acrylics with mixed media with gold, silver, and copper leaf mostly in earth colors on canvas or wood.  She likes to experiment with any natural materials especially with metals.  Some of her works may have unique micro-sculptures on them with brush or copper pieces combined together with mixed media giving them a three-dimensional feel.

Please join us for the opening reception, which is open to the public, Friday, December 7th, at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery from 5-8pm. The gallery is located at 160 East Bay St., and is open daily from 11am to 6pm. Sales made at the gallery support the non-profit Guild Community Outreach work. For more information about Elena Evan, please visit her website at www.ElenaEvanFineArt.com.

Charleston Artist Guild | Carmen Osborn

The Charleston Artist Guild is excited to present “The Art of Wander”, a collection of new works by Carmen Osborn.  Carmen’s work is an expression of our individual journeys; encounters with the world around us, and the beauty in it.  The collection will be on display at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during the month of January.

Carmen Osborn has been drawing since she can remember.  Growing up on a farm in the Midwest, her two favorite pastimes were drawing and wandering the countryside. As an adult, she continued to draw and paint, doing portrait commissions in both black and white charcoal and also portraits in oil and acrylic. She then began to experiment with soft pastel and sold her pastel landscapes at juried art festivals, winning awards for them over the years. 

Carmen has traveled far beyond her Midwestern home since childhood and uses paint as a way to share not just the visual experience of her wanderings, but also the emotional response these places evoke. She believes her artwork is her most effective method of communication.  Now, based in lovely Charleston, SC, Carmen is making the shift from creating landscapes in pastel, to acrylic.  And of course, the inspiring lowcountry of South Carolina is always a great source of inspiration.

Please join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 4th, 2019 at the CAG Gallery, from 5-8pm. The gallery is located at 160 East Bay Street, Charleston, SC. Sales made at the Gallery support the non profit Guild’s community outreach programs.
