This exhibit has been assembled by a group of artists who have been painting together for the last 2 years. The palette they use is a concentrated palette of 8 colors and white – minus black (they mix their own). Each artist explored their own motif. The artists and their subjects are as follows:Linda Mack has given us an impressionistic view of Historic Savannah for this show. Linda focused on the interplay of lush oaks, period architecture and courtyard gardens. Dolphin Head is Pepi McNair’s special place. Pepi visits the beach regularly on family outings and walks with her dogs. She has painted the changing colors and amazing views that have inspired her these last 30 years. Nancy Mitchell has given us children at play inspired by memories of her own childhood and her children, she loves how kids stay in the moment and just have fun. The ever-changing light and atmosphere is what inspired Linda Nickles to paint her soft waterscapes of the Lowcountry. Annie Smithers’ earliest memory of creating was drawing horses. Exploring horses interacting with nature and each other in her painterly style is the latest step in her artistic journey. Animals in nature painted in oil are the subject of Bing-ie Tan’s latest artistic medium. In addition to painting Bing-ie Tan has photographed animals all over the world.
The show opens Tuesday October 4th 5- 7 at The Art League of Hilton Head, Walter Greer Gallery, Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, 14 Shelter Cove Lane, Hilton Head Island. 843-681-5060 or visit www.ArtLeagueHHI.org
