Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, Offers Works by Lorraine Dauphin

The Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, will present an exhibit of works by Lorraine (Lori) Dauphin, on view in the Seacoast Artists Gallery, located at The Market Common, from Jan. 1 - 31, 2014.

Dauphin states, “I fell in love with the Carolina coastline and enjoy capturing the exquisite, vibrant light on the landscape with oils. It is an exciting challenge to mix just the exact hue that depicts a pale yellow in the sky at dusk or the lavender in a cast shadow. There is such power of expression that a single brush stroke can make, ultimately drawing the viewer in emotionally, so they feel the painting – not just see it.”

Dauphin moved to Myrtle Beach from Connecticut with her husband Roland eight years ago. She has been drawing and painting from nature since childhood. She earned an Associate’s Degree in graphic design/illustration at the Art Institute of Boston and spent several years as assistant Art Director for a major corporation. A successful freelance designer and illustrator since 1994, Dauphin has integrated her pastel drawings into several design projects, and has appeared in The Directory of Illustration. Her pastels and oils also hang in businesses, private homes and small galleries throughout the Northeast and South Carolina. Dauphin’s submission for MB 2010 Food and Wine week poster competition, took third place. She is becoming known for her portraiture and pet portraits. In addition to exhibiting at Seacoast Artists Gallery at the Market Common, Dauphin is a member of the Seacoast Artists Guild, and she takes classes with artist Jeffrey Sturm.

The Seacoast Artists Gallery exhibits the original artwork of over 70 local artists. Oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, fiber art, photography, engraved silver and clay are just some of the media that can be viewed and purchased at the gallery.

The Seacoast Artists Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit visual arts organization dedicated to promoting and advancing excellence in the visual arts through teaching, exhibits, workshops and special events. It is focused on developing and nurturing young artists-to-be through training programs, sponsorship of art scholarships and art shows.
