Rice Museum OPENING July 15 - Celia Wester and Kay Lybrand

Kay Lybrand is a native of Columbia, SC currently residing in Pawleys Island.  "My work is inspired by nature.  I choose my subject matter to explore color, mood and the overall theme.  Having grown up in South Carolina, I spent much time on the coast and fell in love with the soft and ever-changing light, particularly in the marshes.  For me, the mystery of the landscape is a metaphor for life - full of transitions, both subtle and dramatic, soft and delicate, others more severe.  My goal is to translate in paint the realism and abstraction and let them merge and co-exist in a beautiful way. Celia Wester moved to Georgetown from her native Charlotte, NC in 2001, changing her artistic focus to fine art.  With a versatile style, working in various mediums she enjoys presenting detailed imagery and color, whether the subject is whimsical or photo-realistic. Her focus has been photography, painting local scenery and shorebirds.  The colors, textures and patterns of nature are the focus of everything in her subject matter.  Her goal is to cause the bystander to be in awe of everything around them and to not miss the flower for a view of the garden.

Sunset River Marketplace July - Aug

POV: Abstraction. Works by Ginny Lassiter thru July 8 Fresh from showing at the Arts Council in Wilson, NC, Ginny brings her exhibition of abstract acrylics back to the beach. She has a keen eye and uses a limited palette adeptly, the result being a body of work with rich coloration and an architectural feel. Although she graduated from East Carolina University with a major in art, Ginny didn’t start painting seriously until 2013 when she sat in on a workshop with North Carolina artist Sterling Edwards. “He really pushed me to develop my own voice, my own art,” she says. She also credits her design instructor at East Carolina, the late Warren Chamberlain. “With his help, I learned the importance of spontaneity and the value in limiting my palette. It keeps the work from becoming too busy.” Tarheel Wandering: a Journey In Black & White Works by Raine Middleton Through July 29th Lincoln County, NC artist Raine Middleton follows a path of creativity originally taken by her ancestors. She throws porcelain on the pottery wheel, painting the piece in black slip. She paints her designs freehand on each piece and then carves out the background. This ancient technique is called Sgraffito and Middleton is a master.
