Now Showing In the Galleries


Rice Museum

From the Desk of the Executive Director: There are many perks to being the Director of the Rice Museum. One of them is working with the artists of our region who exhibit in the Prevost Gallery. For the last 41 years, I have had this pleasure. Currently, we are exhibiting the work of Esther Sharp. Esther is an emerging contemporary artist whom I first met about five years ago when she had just moved back to South Carolina. In the intervening years, Esther has begun educating herself in many different media. This show is the culmination of that study. I am proud to be a part of Esther’s show and I hope you all will come and see her new exhibit. To introduce her to you, I have enclosed below her Artist’s Statement and biography. Jim Fitch, Executive Director

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.”
