Galleries in the Grand Strand Area in SC Play Musical Chairs

Cheryl M. Newby, Inc. is moving from Rainbow Harbor in Myrtle Beach, SC, to The Shops at Oak Lea in Pawleys Island, SC. The gallery, which specializes in fine antique prints, maps, paintings, and museum standard framing has operated in Myrtle Beach for 16 years. The new, larger gallery location is scheduled to open Apr. 1. In addition to its normal inventory the gallery will expand its offerings to include original paintings by several accomplished contemporary artists, currently including works by Ray Ellis and Claire K. Farrell. The gallery will also continue to offer art restoration services to its clients.

Due to the vacancy at Rainbow Harbor, Gaye Sanders Fisher will move her gallery from 7901 North Ocean Blvd., in Myrtle Beach to the former location of Cheryl M. Newby, Inc, at 5001 North Kings Highway. Fisher has been at the Ocean Blvd. location for twenty-five years.

After Apr. 12, The Gaye Sanders Fisher Gallery will open in its new 1400 square foot facility. The new spacious gallery will exhibit Fisher's original watercolors, oils and limited edition prints, as well as providing a framing service.

The gallery will also display exotic plank floors which are milled by Fisher's son, John, at J.L. Powell & Company at Whiteville, NC. A plank floor of wormy mahogany will be part of the gallery's new interior.

Fisher is an established artist, well known for her emotional interpretations of flora, fauna, people and architecture of the Lowcountry. She has been an active resident and participant of the art community for forty years. Fisher was the instigator of the acquisition and move of the Springmaid Villa to its present location and now known as the Franklin G. Burroughs and Simeon B. Chapin Art Museum. She also owns and maintains a gallery in the historic district of Charleston, SC, at 124 Church Street.
