Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Brenda Orcutt

Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC, is presenting an exhibit of works by Brenda Orcutt, on view in the Gallery Hall at Roper through Jan. 31, 2014.

Orcutt will exhibit thirteen of her unique palette-knife oil paintings, offering holiday prices. A percentage of the sales will benefit the nonprofit Roper St. Francis Foundation.

Orcutt is known for her distinctive style of creating oil paintings using only a palette knife. She is acclaimed for her use of color and texture in her depiction of lowcountry scenes, gardenscapes and romantic still lifes. A resident of Charleston, the artist has collaborated with several Roper Hospital facilities over the years. She has also participated in the Gibbes Museum’s Art of Healing project, which, in collaboration with Roper St. Francis Healthcare, highlights the connection between art and healing. Orcutt says that she is, “very pleased that my paintings may lift the spirits of many who see them in this hospital setting.”

Orcutt is represented by the Edward Dare Gallery in Charleston and the Sandpiper Gallery on Sullivan’s Island, SC. Orcutt is also a Charleston Artist Guild Gallery Exhibiting Member, Oil Painters of America Member and American Impressionist Society Member.
