Charleston County Public Library in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Three Local Artists

The Main Branch of the Charleston County Public Library system in downtown Charleston, SC, will features works by Elsie Eubanks, Linda McGinnis and Karen DeLoach. The exhibit on view in the Saul Alexander Gallery, located on the first floor of the library will be on view through Oct. 31, 2003. This collaboration of work is an extension of the South Carolina Aquarium's Shark Art exhibit.

As an archaeologist for the past 15 years, Elsie Eubanks has developed an interest and a passion for the things humans discard. Our predecessors left behind stone flakes and pottery shreds and today we have thousands of acres of landfills. Her work incorporates metal otherwise destined to a landfill. Her junkyard discoveries are transformed into art with an oxygen acetylene cutting torch and a mig welder. Eubanks's Lowcountry inspired work includes fireplace screens, garden gates, and yard art.

Currently living in James Island, SC, Linda McGinnis has lived in the Southeast all her life. Always a creative person, she could create art out of anything. She started out painting with oils and acrylics, and now she has discovered clay. McGinnis has always loved the ocean and many of her creations are centered around marine life. Since moving to Charleston in 1998, her passion for art has only grown stronger.

And finally, Karen DeLoach brings her 25 years of experience as an art teacher and studio artist from home-based Earthen Vessels Art Studio to the Library. For more than five years, DeLoach has been decoratively painting walls. Working from photography, she can create a unique wall or room to transform the ambience of a space. This original technique has developed from years as a painter and ceramic artist. It combines three-dimensional, naturalistic painting in land or sea-scapes, still lifes, portraits or fantasy scenes.
