Piazza Gallery in Mt. Pleasant, SC, Features Works by Clifford Riley
During the month of Nov., 2003, Piazza Gallery
Art & Framing in Mt. Pleasant, SC, will feature the original
oils of Clifford Riley, a Mount Pleasant impressionist.
Riley studied art while attending Yale University. By his sophomore year, his oils were being exhibited at 20 E. Madison Gallery in New York. His work is routinely exhibited at regional art shows.
Riley discovered he was an artist when his second grade teacher admired his watercolors. He told her he wasn't happy with his watercolors because "it's not how they really look." She encouraged him to continue to see the world in his own way. Riley credits her comment with giving him the freedom to express himself in his unique way.
Riley paints exclusively in oils and claims Picasso and Dali as influences on his impressionistic and somewhat surrealistic work. The exhibit includes Riley's works Dances in the Night, After Cornwallis, Two Meeting Street, What Are They Selling?, Lady in Red, Down a Charleston Alley, The Hibernian Hall, The Wentworth's Neighbor, Battling the Cane, Poppies, Eve and Dancer's Dream.
