A Blog about Finding Inspiration

"We have a wonderful world to be inspired by and each new day is like an adventure into the unknown, where things that require a second glance can be captured in time on a canvas for anyone to enjoy forever." (Louise Corke)

Alvin B. Glen Exhibition

Last night we attended Charleston Artist Gallery's Opening Reception for Alvin B Glen  Exhibition "Glimpses of the Low Country".  His style could be called Surreal-Realism. Seldom are images in fully recognizable environments. He either includes or takes away some element allowing the viewer to complete the image. Bright colors are used to catch the eye to engage the viewer.

"The images in this exhibit give brief looks into how I grew up and how new experiences affected my view of the familiar, the expected and the new. I prefer not to tell a complete story, but instead allow the viewer to complete the story with the knowledge they bring to the piece."
Visit the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery during the month of July to catch a "Glimpse of the Low Country" and complete a story of your own. Gallery is open Sun through Sat 11am-6pm.
