Principle Gallery Presents - Laura Fontaine's Solo Exhibition,

"Lowcountry Light"

Stop by Principle Gallery during for Charleston Gallery Association's First Friday Art Walk! Their Artist Reception for Laura Fontaine's Solo Exhibition, 'Lowcountry Light,' is Friday, March 4th from 5:00 -8:00! 

Laura Lloyd Fontaine paints mainly on large gallery wrap canvas. Her style has been called representational painting, or as she refers to it as contemporary impressionism with a traditional flair. She works with oil glazes on a textured surface. Laura has always admired the American Impressionist Henry Hensche and Charles W. Hawthorne, founder of the original Cape Cod School of Art. Laura finds that working on a textured surface, she is able to layer color to create atmosphere and depth. Laura’s home and studio looks over the marsh of Charleston, S.C. Laura relies on her many charcoal sketches of compositions and plein air paintings for the intensity of the light and the value changes. In July 2015, she will be represented by the Principle Gallery in Charleston, S.C. Laura has been chosen to be their artist in residence for the upcoming year. She will be demonstrating in the gallery 3 times a week. Feel free to contact Laura through the website if you are interested in seeing her studio or interested in her work.
