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.

Join us for the opening artist reception of NURTURED, BONDED and SPIRITUAL: The Artistry of April Harrison  This is one art exhibit you do not want to miss! 

Reception: March 1, 2019 6pm- 9pm at Neema Gallery| 3 Broad St., Ste. 100, Charleston, SC 29401

This exhibit will run March 1-30, 2019

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 taken 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 original artwork is currently in the private collections of Whoopi Goldberg, Honorable Ruth Simmons, Honorable Andrew Young, Jesse L. Martin, Shaun Robinson and more! 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 is already receiving rave reviews.

CHARLESTON ARTIST GUILD | Carmen Osborn

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.

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.

Charleston Artist Guild Gallery | Faye Sullivan and Susanne Frenzel

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.

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.

The Grand Bohemian Gallery invites audiences to watch the effervescent Morówa Mosai create a visually stimulating art and performance piece, “Windows to the Soul,”  a live painting & performance event incorporating living models/artworks. Each painted canvas and corresponding live-painted human model will become a completed artwork representing four senses that allow us to interact with the outside world.  As the artist completes the painting of each, the model will move into poses (similar to those found in yoga practices) that represent their designated sense: sight, hearing, touch, or smell.

Live music performance by local artist Brooke Garwood. Relax under the chandelier-glistening oaks and join us for this multi-media event with refreshments available by Cellar at 55.

Lowcountry Artists | Monnie Johnson.

Lowcountry Artists presents ‘Ever Evolving’ by Monnie Johnson.

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. Meet the artist for refreshments and music at the opening reception 5-8 during the CGA Art Walk

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.

Dog & Horse Fine Art | Robert Zakanitch

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.”
