Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Features Works by Lesley Powell, Angela Smith and SOPHIA

Providence Gallery in Charlotte, NC is pleased to announce the opening of its newest show celebrating the still life. The work of three women, Lesley Powell, Angela Smith and SOPHIA will be featured in this exhibit, which will be on view from Feb. 1 - 28, 2011.

Compositions will range from traditional subject matter including florals and fruit to interior vignettes.

Angela Smith's paintings capture the viewer's imagination through the artist's vivid use of translucent color and strong, textural brush strokes. Working from photographs, Smith uses delineated lines to draw the eye across the canvas and emphasize every detail of her paintings.

For fellow artist Lesley Powell, interior scenes are a favorite subject. Powell often finds inspiration in the rooms of her own home and other favorite spots, anywhere she senses a true feeling of intimacy she can share with others on canvas. A versatile artist, this show will also include examples of her traditional still life works featuring fruit and fine china groupings.

SOPHIA has garnered a loyal following for her lush, color-laden paintings of flowers, candy and the ephemeral. The Greek and French artist brings a Mediterranean effervescence to her joyful tabletop renderings, which are reminiscent of Chagall. Her romantic whimsical works truly celebrate love of live.
