Virginia Cassidy featured at SOBA in July

Virginia Cassidy wants to capture the imagination of her audience just as the canvas has captured her imagination.

“Everything I do comes from what I see in my head — colors, shapes, imaginary scenes. No reference photos,” Cassidy said. “I let my intuition guide me, often taking me in directions that I don’t expect. Every blank canvas holds the promise of a new adventure.”

“From My Imagination to Yours” will exhibit from July 3-30 at The Society of Bluffton Artists gallery in Old Town Bluffton. An opening reception will take place from 5-7 p.m. July 6 at the gallery. These events are free and open to the public.

Cassidy works primarily from her Bluffton-based home studio. She began painting in earnest when she retired from her career as a business consultant in 2019. Her primary medium is acrylic, occasionally incorporating other items into her art to create mixed media pieces. While Cassidy is partial to trees, flowers and landscapes, her work also includes non-representational abstract paintings that focus on the use of color, shape and texture.

“I love to experiment and combine different styles, techniques and tools,” she said. “As you view my art, I encourage you to use your own imagination to interpret what you see.  Transport yourself into my idealized world of color, beauty and wonder.”

Cassidy is an exhibiting member of The Society of Bluffton Artists and the Art League of Hilton Head.  For more information, visit
