The show is hung and we are GIDDY about the new work from artists Allyn Graham, Robin Howard, and Walter Arnold. We've got wine and live music, so stop by on your way to or from dinner Friday night!
Art Mecca of Charleston
427 King Street
6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Robin Howard's "Charleston" boxes are intricate assemblages of local found objects and paper bundles. It's all held together with beeswax, so these works aren't just amazing, artful conversation pieces - they smell good.
Robin is an avid naturalist and this series is her love letter to the Lowcountry. When she's not in her studio on the marsh making art, she's usually out kayaking, wandering the beaches, birding, or roaming Bull Island looking for materials.
Robin is the third artist showing at our February 24th Group Show. It's hard for us to keep these boxes in the gallery - but we've got nearly a dozen hanging right now for the show (and for the enjoyment of the #SEWE folks this weekend).
Come see her new work (before it disappears!) and plan to come back and meet Robin on Friday, February 24th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the opening.
We're starting to hang the work for our Group Show on Friday, February 24th. We're featuring three artists, Allyn Graham, Robin Howard and Walter Arnold, who work in very different mediums, but have a common thread: Their work is nostalgic, organic, and sometimes haunting.
Walter is a photographer who captures unusual and artistic scenes in places that others often pass by. He uses an artistic technique called High Dynamic Range photography. By capturing multiple exposures ranging from dark to bright, he can reveal a greater range of light and detail in a scene than what could be captured with a single image. This, coupled with his creative interpretation of a scene, allows him to create non-traditional and sometimes surreal scenes that bring to life the forgotten locations.
We just received amazing new work by Walter and we can't wait for you to see them. Mark your calendar now for our Group Show on Friday, February 24th from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
