Terry Newman's "Rooted in God's Splendor"

August 24 - October 31, 2017

Artist Statement - The inspiring & invigorating process of creating has been in my blood for as long as I can remember. I have delved into many forms of mediums in my creative adventures over my adult years but none brought me as much pleasure as welding a brush on canvas. My favored paint of choice is acrylics. I like that acrylic paints can be manipulated, dry quickly, clean up is effortless, & they have no uncomfortable odor to endure. I can control my work with every so defined details or let my strokes flow effortlessly with equally great satisfying results. I find true pleasure in my art when I can capture a moment in time, a specific scenic view or evoke an emotional feeling from the heart. Of late, my focus has been on God’s glorious plant life with all of its myriad colors, shapes, sizes & growth patterns.

Dot Goodwin's Three Worlds

August 24 - October 31, 2017

Dot Goodwin cites her hands as her favorite tool, savoring the sensation of carving surfaces, or carefully building multi level images for casting. Her strong sense of symmetry and attention to detail are features that stand out in her work, lending themselves to the creation of iconic images and traditional symbols of institutions and South Carolina in her commercial pieces. Dot Goodwin often incorporates Native American imagery in her personal pieces, feeling a deep connection to the people and their spiritual practices. Images of horses and wings are recurring icons throughout her work.
