Walter Greer Gallery on Hilton Head Island, SC, Offers Works by Lynda K. Potter

The Art League of Hilton Head is presenting the exhibit, Celebration of Paint and Water, featuring works by Lynda K. Potter, on view in the Walter Greer Gallery, located in the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, on view through Mar. 31, 2012. A reception will be held on Mar. 2, from 5-7pm.

Working in watercolor, acrylic and mixed media, Potter uses loose brushstrokes to evoke the magic of the Lowcountry world with its charming cottages, live oaks dripping with Spanish moss, sunsets on rivers, marshlands in early morning light and beaches alive with colors of sand and sky. Her florals, lush with soft edges, as well as her landscapes are painted in what the Bluffton resident calls “abstract realism.”

“ Her [Potter’s] work is an artful balance of what the viewer knows is there and what the viewer’s imagination brings to the painting.... It is the free-flow of impression from the realism that delights...Potter’s work always offers something new,” wrote The Island Packet’s Nancy Wellard.

The artist, a signature member of the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, has been featured in more than 21 one-woman exhibitions as well as numerous group shows. She has also been invited to show her paintings in more than 30 exhibitions in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Her work has been published in six books.

Potter, who lives in Bluffton, SC, also teaches watermedia classes at the Academy of the Art League of Hilton Head.

Also on exhibit during March are works from Art League member artists. The Art League of Hilton Head is a not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to promoting and supporting the visual arts.
