December Issue 2004
in Rock Hill, SC, Features Works by Barbi Dalton and Megan Marshall
The Arts Council of Rock Hill and York County will present the exhibit, Smiling Faces and Beautiful Places, featuring works by painters Barbi Dalton and Megan Marshall in the Dalton Gallery in Rock Hill, SC. The exhibit which will bring some fresh faces and new places to Rock Hill will be on view through Dec. 27, 2004.
Dalton, niece of Harry and Becca Dalton for whom the gallery is named, resides in Chapel Hill, NC. A graduate of Kansas University, she has traveled Europe, studying painting techniques used by Italian masters. Dalton has become an established watercolorist and oil painter around the Carolinas, known for the flair she brings to her European-styled landscapes.
Dalton says, "My paintings are inspired by God and colored by my vision and ability to transform an everyday scene into a dynamic affirmation of life." She is drawn to the strong interplay of light and shadow in her vignettes, which she says brings her to acknowledge a Divine presence.
Megan Marshall, a recent graduate of East Carolina University currently resides in Asheville, NC. She has shown work in statewide and nationally juried exhibitions throughout North Carolina. In her work, Marshall creates places using characters of her daily life. The characters have captured her attention for some reason or another, but her confident presentation through palette and composition brings the viewer face to face with their delightful expressions.
