On November 4, 2011, from 5:00pm-8:00pm I will be the featured artist at The Sylvan Gallery, www.thesylvangallery.com. The theme of the exhibit is titled, “Let Me Tell You My Story”, it is a visual narrative of African-American lifestyle in the deep South. Visual images that stir and stimulate the soul. Paintings of southern baptisms, rural paintings of old lived in shacks by sharecroppers, fishing paintings that are so peaceful it makes you want to be right there. The colorful patch quilt paints whispers old stories begging to be heard.
During the weekend, several artists will paint in the park, including myself, each painting will be auctioned that evening and all proceeds will benefit high school art students in the Charleston, SC. The Sylvan Gallery a member of CFADA sponsored auction will also include original works of art by renown southern artists. William Aiken Walker, a prominently known southern artist works will be on auction.
Every year that I’ve participated my paintings have sold at auction. So now I have an auction record. It’s exciting ti see art collectors bid on your work and watch it sell at a high price!!!.
I will have about 30 new originals for sale, some please come by or visit online my exhibit, “Let Me Tell You My Story”. We will be publishing a catalog that you can purchase for $15.00. I will let you know when it will be available.
