Anglin Smith Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Betty Anglin Smith

Anglin Smith Fine Art n Charleston, SC, will present a selection of new paintings by Betty Anglin Smith in an exhibition entitled, Air, Land & Sea, on view from Apr. 4 - 18, 2014. A reception will be held on Apr. 4, from 5-8pm.

Forever inspired by the beauty of the Lowcountry she calls home, Smith has found her muse in nature. “Air, Land and Sea are the basic elements that provide the environment that sustains our life on Earth,” says Smith. “Without any one of these elements, life would not exist as we know it.”

For Smith, painting plays an important role in preservation. “As citizens of this Earth, it is our sacred duty to protect and preserve this environment both for us and for our future generations,” she says. “My commitment as a landscape artist is to put color to canvas to express and interpret the beauty and value of our air, land and sea. Not only are these elements our lifeblood, they are the substance of nature that inspires and awes us in all their unique power and beauty.”

Betty Anglin Smith is a native of the Carolinas and has firmly established herself as an enduring artist in the region. After the birth of her triplets, all now successful artists themselves, Smith pursued her training as an artist and has now been painting for over 40 years. Her paintings adorn the walls of private collections in the area, around the country, and abroad. Her recognizable and vibrant style has made her a favorite among collectors.

Anglin Smith Fine Art is Charleston’s gallery for contemporary realism and color. The gallery features works by Lowcountry painter Betty Anglin Smith and her triplets, painters Jennifer Smith Rogers and Shannon Smith Hughes, and photographer Tripp Smith. Sculptures in bronze by Darrell Davis and works in oil by Kim English and Colin Page are also available. The gallery also represents paintings and drawings from the estate of Carl Plansky. Subject matter ranges from local and European landscapes to architectural works and still life, figurative and abstract.
