Dog & Horse Fine Art | Sybil Fix

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.

MARY MARTIN GALLERY | DAVID MICHAEL BECK AND JUNE VALENTINE-RUPPE

Join us on Gallery Row in the famed Charleston Historic District for an enchanting evening of fine art at Mary Martin Gallery! This November we proudly present “Women…A Different Era”- a collaborative collection illustrating the power of the modern-day woman through the artwork of David Michael Beck and June Valentine-Ruppe.  In the last century, society has made significant progress towards the equality of women.  No longer is a woman expected to be in the kitchen.  Women have risen to become the majority of the workforce on a national and global level. In America, women are not only flourishing in the workforce but they’re outnumbering males in obtaining a higher education. These astounding advancements along with many others are the source of inspiration for “Women…A Different Era”.  Join us as we welcome David Michael Beck and June Valentine-Ruppe to our Broad Street Gallery on Friday, November 2nd 5-8 PM.

Charleston Artist Guild Gallery | Faye Sullivan and Susanne Frenzel

The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is excited to present This is Us, a collection of works by featured artists Faye Sullivan and Susanne Frenzel. Faye’s collection of oil paintings reflects the beauty of the lowcountry’s coast. Susanne’s paintings are abstract using several techniques and media. The exhibit will run from November 1 through November 30 with an opening reception on Friday, November 2 from 5-8 PM. 

Faye Sullivan is a former art instructor and graduate of the University of East Carolina with a B.A. and Master’s Degree in Art.  Faye moved to the lowcountry from Massachusetts fifteen years ago and was inspired by the beauty that surrounded her and decided her focus as an artist should be seascapes and marsh scenes.  Water seemed all important in both themes, therefore she chose to make water her main concentration. Faye states “Water is the ultimate chameleon - water reflects the clouds, time of day, wind, sky, and all the many things which surround it. It is this reflective quality which is very helpful in repeating colors to unify the scene”. Faye’s goal is to create beauty through soft edges and hopefully set a mood of peacefulness and solitude. She believes it is this softness that makes her work easily recognizable.

Susanne Frenzel (Suzel) was born in Germany and received a B.A./ M.A. from the University of Dortmund and a M.A. from the University of Kaiserslautern. She worked, lived and traveled through Europe until she moved to the United States in 1990. Living in different parts of the world has significantly influenced Susanne’s work. Besides teaching art workshops, she is also a German Professor at The Citadel, The Military College of SC. One of Susanne’s passions is experimenting with various techniques, media and multiple textures. She follows spontaneous perceptions and inspirations to create her abstract paintings and to catch the viewer’s eye.  Her award winning art has been shown nationally and internationally and been juried into local, state and international shows. 

Please join us for the opening reception, which is open to the public, on Friday, Novermber 2, 2018, at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery from 5-8 pm. The gallery, located at 160 East Bay Street, is open daily from 11-6pm. Sales made at the gallery support the nonprofit Guild’s community outreach work.

Hagan Fine Art | Madeline Dukes & Mary Hoffman

In Common offers a delightful glimpse at each artist’s style as they approach some of the same compositions, showing their unique, individual perspective. At each end of their style spectrum, their painterly interests begin to gravitate toward what they share in common: Landscape and Still Life Painting.  The show will be on display for the month of November.

 

Mary Hoffman
Since the age of three, Mary L. Hoffman has been drawing and painting and knew without a doubt that when she grew up she’d be a professional artist.
As her artistic skills developed over the years, Mary became best known for her portraiture art.  Portrait commissions helped finance her college studies at The Cleveland Institute of Art in Cleveland, Ohio where she earned her BFA in 1989.
For the past 20 years, CEO’s, universities, and collectors from all over the world have commissioned Mary for her elegant oil paintings and charcoal portraiture.
Some of her well-known portrait clients include the University of Dayton, actress and model Andie MacDowell, and NHL hockey legend Mark Messier.

Madeline Dukes
A South Carolina native and Charleston area resident, Madeline Dukes, studied studio art and political science at Winthrop University. Dukes’ work has been selected for several juried group and solo shows at museums and cultural centers in North and South Carolina, including the Etherredge Gallery at University of South Carolina-Aiken, Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Juried Art Exhibition, Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, the Spartanburg Museum of Art, Lincoln County Museum, Sumter Museum of Art, McElvey Center, Mooresville Art Center, Pickens County Museum, the Rauch Gallery at Gaston College, and a traveling show with the South Carolina State Museum.  Her work has also been featured in Fine Art Connoisseur and can be found in private and corporate collections throughout the U.S.
Landscapes, “nature portraits,” and the figure are the subjects of her paintings. Although Dukes completes most work within her studio, she does employ an interactive process of observation in nature to capture color, form, and, most importantly, light. For her, this is where the painting begins – outside or from the live model. A connection with the subject must happen. Once this connection is made, she sketches, paints, photographs, and makes notes of her experiences. While some work is completed on location, she usually brings these observations into the “indoor” studio.

Like computer software we as artists evolve in response to a user’s needs. Inevitably we would like to think of ourselves as slowly transitioning into becoming better artists. We take classes, we do workshops and we talk to other artists in the art world. Eventually we put ourselves out there in a community whose commentary whether positive or negative makes us grow, we evolve. Take a walk through some of Monnie Johnson's art: personal, reflective, interactive and...‘Ever Evolving.” Monnie is the featured artist for the month of October.

Charleston Artist Guild Gallery | H. Scott Cushing

The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is pleased to present New Perspectives, featuring the surrealistic photography and digital art creations of H. Scott Cushing, a Brooklyn-born/Daniel Island, SC, based photographer and graphic artist. Scott is the featured artist for the month of October. The exhibit will run from October 1st through October 31st with an opening reception on Friday, October 5th.

From student-athlete to hippie to Navy seaman; traveler, husband, father, friend and artist...Scott has lived in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Westchester, Florida & South Carolina, and has traveled through the Caribbean and Europe.  At his former home on Long Island, NY, his love of the beach and ocean took him to Jones Beach where, over the past 30 years, the serene beauty of nature during the fall and winter provided endless inspiration for his work. With New York City a short trip from his home, the frenzied pace and unique cultures of "the city" additionally inform his aesthetic, creating a juxtaposition uniquely his own. His work has been displayed at juried art shows in the Lincoln Center, Westport and Mystic, CT, as well as a private show at Agora Gallery in Chelsea, NY.

Upon relocating to Daniel Island, SC, nearly a decade ago, Cushing continues to look to nature for inspiration, drawing upon the unique beauty of the Charleston landscape. 

Please join us for the opening reception, which is open to the public, Friday, October 5th, 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.

Reception Friday, October 5, 5:00 – 8:00 p.m.

Exhibition on view through October 27, 2018

The gallery is honored to exhibit work by Robert Zakanitch, one of American contemporary art history’s most important artists.  Zakanitch has been represented by many of the top galleries in Manhattan. This fall he will be traveling through Europe with The Ludwig Collection which includes his paintings. The collection will travel from Aachen, Germany, to Vienna, Austria.  Additionally this fall he has shows in Lyon, France, and Los Angeles. 

The Charleston exhibition will include illustrations which are featured in his children’s book, Good Dog, published by Random House (out of print).  On hand will be his biography: Zakanitch: Robert Rahway, a biography published by Pomegranate, and his book A Garden of Ordinary Miracles: An Alphabet Book, published by Rizzoli/Universe.

The gallery has always been one of Zakanitch’s biggest fans; we have always believed that art should take the viewer to a better place.  One cannot come to a Zakanitch exhibition without being happily transformed.  Renowned art critic David Pagel calls Zakanitch’s work “a wild collision between freewheeling bohemian abandon and settled-down domestic sociability.”

Charleston Artist Guild | Jan Kelley and Sherri Bardsley

The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is pleased to present Moments in Time, a collection of works by featured artists Jan Kelley and Sherri Bardsley.  Jan’s work features a collection of ink paintings and drawings as well as acrylic and pastel work. Sherri’s work is a collection of wildlife and animal portraits painted in oil.  The exhibit will run from September 1st through September 30th with an opening reception on Friday, September 7th from 5-8 PM.

Jan Kelley grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan and received her BS from Eastern MI in Special Education – Emotionally Impaired. Her Award winning pen and ink paintings tell a story with many hidden objects in the works.  They take you on a visual journey through the variation of line, color, space and technique - the essence of that moment in time that captured her eye and sparked her imagination. Along with raising children, Jan’s creativity and love for creating art continued to grow. She and her husband have lived in the Charleston area since 2003. Jan says, “Art has been a positive in my life and creating it is a godsend.”

Sherri Bardsley is a Charleston native, retired with over twenty years in law enforcement.  Returning to art, which she enjoyed during high school and college, Sherri found her retirement hobby and it soon became a second career.  Sherri says “Most of my paintings feature wildlife or pets.  My love of art and my love of animals have allowed me the ability to combine the two into one.  Nothing gives me greater pleasure than to be able to paint someone's pet for them, giving them a lasting memory.”

Please join us for the opening reception, which is open to the public, on Friday, September 7, 2018, at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery from 5-8 pm. The gallery, located at 160 East Bay Street, is open daily from 11-6pm. Sales made at the gallery support the nonprofit Guild’s community outreach work.

Miller Gallery | Marina Dunbar

Miller Gallery invites you to enter an immersive installation by Charleston artist, Marina Dunbar. Her recent body of work, consisting of over forty paintings and sculptures, explores the harmony between spontaneity and control through her use of color, movement, shadow and space.

Marina’s process involves manipulating the surface of each piece with heat, wind, and gravity, granting the works a sculptural quality. The practice is both hypnotic and uncertain. Because fluid media is sensitive to its environment, a deep breath, a slight shift of focus, a sound in the distance can all cause the paint to sway from the pre-determined path.

Embracing the spontaneity of both her process and our natural environment, Marina’s paintings continue to reference organic forms while departing from their literal representations. They pursue a desire to capture an intrinsic harmony in a way that is refreshingly unpredictable.

Join us at Miller Gallery on September 7th from 6-8pm. 

All are welcome!

What does it say to you?  Join us as we welcome Trish Weeks to our Broad Street Gallery on Friday, September 7th 5-8 PM.  She will be here to answer any questions and discuss the significance of “Conversations about Color”.

Trish Weeks is a passionate and intuitive oil painter taking her inspiration from her experiences in the Midwest and the Carolinas where she spends much of her time. Weeks’ paintings dance the line between expressionism and impressionism.  She translates her vision to canvas with palette knife in hand with movement and enthusiasm that are evident in her cheerful compositions and complex layers of color.

Bonnie created The Studio Art School and Gallery in Wauconda, Illinois (also known as Studio in the Woods) teaching fundamentals and fine art to over 300 students a week.

Charleston Artist Guild Gallery | Kay Moffitt

The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is pleased to present Life Paths, a collection of new works by award-winning artist Kay Moffitt.  The exhibit will run from July 1st through July 31st with an Opening Reception on Friday, July 6th from 5-8 PM.

Kay’s work is often described as conveying an air of mystery. Beneath her brush the commonplace becomes captivating - each image brimming with unanswered questions, stories untold, and secret paths that lead to uncertain ends.

In Life Paths, Kay immortalizes subjects from all walks of life on canvas in equal regard, giving light to those who frequently go unseen, and compelling the viewer to consider the depths of character in each.  

Her color choices are often more tonal, but even the moodiest work will have touches of color. In her own words, “I find painting the gritty captures my interest more than the pretty aspects of life.”

Kay was recently awarded First Place in the Charleston Artists Guild 64th Annual Members Exhibition for her painting Welcome Home. Over the years it has been her privilege to study with accomplished artists such as Richard Schmid, Sherrie McGraw, David Leffel, Scott Christensen, Quang Ho and others.  Kay has participated in several group shows and exhibitions in Pennsylvania, Illinois and South Carolina. In her 10 years living in the Chicago area she was an active participant in programs at the Palette and Chisel, Evanston Art Center and the North Shore Art League.   She is a member of the Charleston Artists Guild, the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild and Oil Painters of America.

Charleston Artist Guild | Colors of Life

The Charleston Artist Guild is pleased to announce Tina Botzenhardt and Lori Jill DiBiase as the Featured Artists for the month of June. Their exhibit, Colors of Life, is a collection of photographs showcasing both of the artists’ love for photography and travel. Their wish is for the viewer to be inspired by their unique pieces of photographic art showing the beauty of life and the world around us. 

Born in Germany, Tina moved 20 years ago to the United States with her husband and little son. Today she is a mother of two adult children, one teenager and three dogs. Tina started photography 10 years ago and is a member of the Professional Photographers of America. She learned from many of the best professional photographers in the world in countless classes and workshops. After years of practice and a natural eye for composition, Tina has become an award-winning photographer. She loves to travel the world with her family, creating stunning images that are full of color. Although Tina loves color, she is often inspired to also create simple but powerful black and white photographs. 

Lori Jill is a licensed Charleston Tour Guide and loves to show off the images of the beautiful city she roams about on a daily basis. Since 2004, Lori Jill has been a professional photographer but has recently moved from doing professional portrait work to capturing and creating photographs meant for artistic display. She was formally trained at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, SC, where she studied the fine arts. She is also a certified professional photographer with the Professional Photographers of America. She has taught photography workshops on both a national and international level but has always enjoyed teaching the aspiring photographers more. Today you are likely to find Lori Jill chasing a bird around in the woods for hours on end, lost in the challenge of capturing "that perfect moment".  

This exhibition is a partnership between two long time friends who grew close due to their common interest in photography. Through years of collaboration, fun, and countless antics, they have made mistakes, but have grown as artists. Their work will be on display together as the featured artists of the Gallery from June 1st to June 30th.
