Karen Keene Day
March 3, 5-8 PM

Karen Keene Day continues her Moments With Wild Horses series March 3rd with the opening of Majestic Motion. A decade of summers spent adventuring the valleys of Colorado comes together in this body of work. Traveler, Sundance, and Kreacher are just a few frequent subjects of Day's energetic representations. Painting from photographs taken in the field, Day's slick palette knife strokes create just enough of the image for the viewer to fill in the rest. It's difficult not to be swept up in the overwhelming sense of implied motion. With some pieces spanning 72", Day is able to highlight the wide open feeling of 22,00 acres within which these mustangs live. 

Join the artist and fellow art walkers March 3rd from 5-8 pm for an opening reception at 438 King St. All are welcome!

MARY MARTIN GALLERY AND RON DI SCENZA

FRIDAY FEBRUARY 3, 5-8PM
“From Dark to Light, Then Color”

Mary Martin Art Gallery is pleased to announce the Grand Opening of Ron Di Scenza’s art exhibit showcasing his paintings and his perfected Verdaccio or Monochromatic underpainting technique, which originates from the Italian fresco painters of the early Renaissance. Ron Di Scenza, who resides in Italy, will be in attendance for the exhibit opening and an artist meet and greet on Friday, February 3rd from 5-8 PM.

Di Scenza achieves an optical effect that cannot be achieved by direct painting with color. An underpainting is a monochrome version of the final painting intended to initially fix the composition, give volume and substance to the forms, and distribute darks and lights in order to create the effect of illumination. His process begins with preliminary drawing transferred to the canvas and he works "from dark to light." Once Di Scenza established his monochromatic design, he then adds color.

Especially exciting, Di Scenza's detailed realism is on par with Flemish painter Johannes Vermeer's, while the soulfulness of his subjects brings to mind Italian artist Michelangelo Caravaggio. “When I paint, I try to continue the great painting methods that came before me," explains Di Scenza. "At the same time, I seek to create the immediacy of the here and now through the unique spirit of the person I'm painting.

“From Dark, to Light, then Color” will be on display through February 28, 2017.
Ron Di Scenza is represented byMary Martin Gallery, 103 Broad Street, Charleston, SC 29401

MARY MARTIN ART GALLERY PRESENTS
MASTER ARTIST RON DiSCENZA’S ARTIST WORKSHOP
“FROM DARK TO LIGHT, THEN COLOR”
Andell Inn-Kiawah, SC
January 31st - February 2nd
 
Join us for a dynamic workshop in the Verdaccio or Monochromatic underpainting technique which originates from the Italian fresco painters of the early Renaissance with artist Ron DiScenza.

You will achieve an optical effect that cannot be achieved by direct painting with color. In its simplest terms, an underpainting is a monochrome version of the final painting intended to initially fix the composition, give volume and substance to the forms, and distribute darks and lights in order to create the effect of illumination. Color is applied over the underpainting only when it is thoroughly dry. 

Especially exciting, Di Scenza's detailed realism is on par with Flemish painter Johannes Vermeer's, while the soulfulness of his subjects brings to mind Italian artist Michelangelo Caravaggio."When I paint, I try to continue the great painting methods that came before me," explains Di Scenza. "At the same time, I seek to create the immediacy of the here and now through the unique spirit of the person I'm painting. His process begins with preliminaty drawing transferred to the canvas and he works "from dark to light." Once Di Scenza established his monochromatic design, he adds color. Di Scenza's paintings can be seen in galleries in the United States and Italy and in the permanent collection of many Long Island and New York City corporations. His individual collectors hail from around the globe.

DAY 1- On the first day, students will recreate a Rembrandt portrait.  They will learn the procedures of how Rembrandt's paintings were created, with reference pictures supplied by Ron Di Scenza.
 
DAY 2- The Rembrandt technique learned on day one will be applied to a still-life painting.  The still-life reference will be provided by Ron Di Scenza.
 
DAY 3- On the last day, students will apply what they have learned to a landscape or seascape painting.  Students may bring their own reference pictures if they choose.  Ron Di Scenza will also be providing instruction on how to create a landscape painting without a reference picture, using only the imagination!
 
Classes are $350 per person and will be held from 11 AM - 6 PM at the Andell Inn in Freshfields Village.

Mary Martin Gallery | Laura Palermo

This December, Mary Martin Gallery will be featuring our local wildlife conservation artist, Laura Palermo- a passionate artist who has turned to art activism as a form of aesthetic resolution for our threatened and endangered species.  It all started with a sea turtle.  When Palermo first moved to Charleston in 2012, she was fishing off the coast of Sullivan’s Island when she was greeted by a green sea turtle.  It was love at first sight!  Palermo was immediately inspired to begin a collection of sea turtle paintings to promote conservation.  One year later, the enthusiastic artist was SCUBA certified and eager to swim and study these magnificent creatures in their natural environment.  Palermo donates 10% of her profits from her sea turtle collection to the SC Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center, and 10% of her bird collection profits to the National Aviary and BirdLife International – in an effort to help provide sustainable solutions for conservation on a local and global level.  Stop by Mary Martin gallery for Art Walk on Friday, December 2nd from 5-8 PM for the show opening and to meet the artist!

Mary Martin Gallery | Leo Osborne: Whistling St. Francis Comes To The Lowcountry

Join us on Broad Street in the famed Charleston Historic District for an enchanting evening of fine art at the Mary Martin Gallery! This November, we proudly present the mystical work of one of our brightest spirits: Leo Osborne. For decades, Leo’s full embrace of the natural world has fed his intensely creative spirit, leading to the creation of countless tributes, crafted with exacting precision, that embody the fondest qualities of mother nature and all of her children. Thus, it is fitting that Leo has dedicated this showing to his recently crafted homage to St. Francis of Assisi - patron of feather and fauna. Leo’s love of all things wild, and his spiritual connection to St. Francis have come together to bring about a divine creation, crafted in bronze, to honor our friend Whistling St. Francis. Join us as we welcome Whistling St. Francis, and the joy of wonderful art!

IAN MASON “The Essential Dog”. Reception:  Friday, Nov 4th, 5 – 8 PM.  The November exhibition continues British artist Mason’s deconstruction and reconstruction of the dog portrait. His work references 18th and 19th century portraits, combined with found-image appropriation from old books, photographs & video stills.  His genius lies in his ability to expertly capture each breed’s anatomy with very few brushstrokes and at the same time perfectly capture the personality unique to each breed.
