Real Estate Studio in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Austin Grace Smith

The Real Estate Studio in Charleston, SC, will present Celebrate the Coast, featuring works by Austin Grace Smith, on view from Dec. 18 through Jan. 28, 2014. A reception will be held on Dec. 18, from 5-8pm.

Austin Grace Smith celebrates the coast in her new show. Fresh from a trip to South America, Summerville, SC, native and Charleston-based artist debuts her latest collection of coastal paintings and tide clocks.

Grace Smith received a new perspective on the Charleston coast after taking a trip to South America. While Peru offered her the beautiful landscapes of the Andes Mountains, returning home filled her with delight as the sunsets and sunrises bounced colors off the waves and tidal waters. Upon returning home, she found herself rejuvenated and inspired to create.

Each piece of Grace Smith’s work is hand painted with care on individually selected wood panels. This new collection will feature full-sized paintings, miniatures and new tide clocks.

Grace Smith is an artist living and working in Charleston, SC. Growing up in Summerville, she has always been inspired by the Lowcountry and has a deep appreciation for her roots. Although she has pursued art her entire life, she dedicated her career to her craft in 2010. In 2012, she was featured in Piccolo Spoleto and has since held many solo and group art shows. Her tide clocks and paintings on wood panels are all inspired by the sand, sea and sky.

The Real Estate Studio is the downtown office of Dunes Properties, a boutique real estate, vacation rental and property management company serving the Charleston area since 1989. Located on historic King Street, The Real Estate Studio supports Charleston’s thriving art community by highlighting a new artist or organization every six weeks. The Studio routinely hosts special events and receptions for area non-profits and artists.
