{Charleston Art Walk}

I had the pleasure of visiting several galleries including, City Gallery at Waterfront Park, Robert Lange Studios, Mary Martin Gallery, Atelier Gallery, Principle Gallery, Atrium Art Gallery, Corrigan Gallery and Sro Art Gallery! I had a very busy night exploring art!


I felt really inspired while visiting the Atelier Gallery! There were so many talented artist, here are just a few that I feel in love with!

I enjoyed the beautiful and intriguing work of Michael Dicter!

“My work engages the natural world through this lens. Images of birds or flowers talk to me of connection, of beauty, of freedom, and of the precarious and profoundly precious nature of our world. Making marks on a surface, choosing colors, dripping, obscuring and replacing images talk to this through the act of painting.”

-Michael Dicter

Beautiful arrangements of flowers by Erin Gregory caught my eye several times!

I love her use of color and texture!

Visually rich and wonderful Mindscapes by Mark Holland!

“My Mindscapes are other worlds where anything happens; time goes back and forth. I find gifts in the hidden, the unseen, in dreams and little objects. The magic surrounds us.”

-Mark Holland


While at the Principle Gallery….

I meet the wonderful Laura Lloyd Fontaine! She creates breathtaking landscapes that leave you feeling refreshed and happy!

His use of chunky texture has a way of pulling you right into the canvas…transporting you right into the scene!
