Red Piano Art Gallery on Hilton head Island, SC, Offers Exhibit of Lowcountry Scenes

The Red Piano Art Gallery in Hilton Head Island, SC, will be showing their second Spring 2000 exhibit, Joyce Nagel & Jack Williamson / Lowcountry Scenes, on view Apr. 29 through May 20.

Joyce Nagel notes "My pastel paintings are not striving for realistic portrayals. I use the landscape as a point of departure, pushing color and values to express the temperature and emotion of the scene." Nagel's impressionistic pastel paintings have captured many national awards including one with the Degas Pastel Society and the Pastel Society of the West Coast. She is a "Member of Excellence" with the Southeastern Pastel Society and "Full Member" of the prestigious Pastel Society of America. The paintings exhibited during this show will highlight the abundance of beautiful subject matters one may confront each day when living in the Lowcountry.

Jack Williamson remarks "I often like to depict the quiet beauty of nature and the charm of yesterday's simpler times in many of my paintings. I'm intrigued with the effects that sunlight and foliage play on beautiful old buildings. Here in the Lowcountry, the variety of dock areas, beaches, marshes and especially the wonderful old shrimp boats and oyster bateaux provide me with much of my subject matter." Williamson graduated from Parsons School of Design and subsequently studied at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Williamson's new paintings will feature many of the Lowcountry's most cherished old architectural gems still found dotting the landscape throughout Beaufort County and his poetic renditions of our shorelines cradling (both derelict and working) rustic fishing vessels.
