USC Sumter in Sumter, SC, Features Works by Carole Carberry

USC Sumter in Sumter, SC, is presenting Blooms, Beaks and Then Some, featuring works by Carole Carberry, on view in the Upstairs Gallery, located in the Administration building of USC Sumter, through Apr. 30, 2014.

Carole Carberry is a multi-media artist with particular interest in watercolor, oil and printmaking. From an early age, she enjoyed an inherited natural artistic ability and a love for drawing. Formal art training included art studies at Montana State University, specialized instruction in fine-art pencil and egg-tempera methods from accomplished artist, Gene Franks, in California, and graduate studies in printmaking from Boyd Saunders at the University of South Carolina.

Carberry is a “Member in Excellence” of the South Carolina Watermedia Society, currently represented in the prestigious traveling show with her original watercolor, “Boys on the Bed.” She is president of the Sumter Artists Guild and a Member-at-Large on the board of the Sandpiper Gallery in Polson, MT. She has taught college level art appreciation and instructed workshops in calligraphy and watercolor.

Carberry has won numerous awards for her work and is represented in private collections throughout the US and abroad. In addition to the Sandpiper Gallery in Montana, her work is displayed at Courtyard Art Gallery in Charleston, SC. For 18 consecutive years, she has been a juried exhibitor at Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Fine Art Exhibition.

Born and raised in the northwest, Carberry and her husband traveled the world as an Air Force family, and now call both Montana and South Carolina home.

“Drawing is my first love, but I also enjoy watercolor, printmaking, oil, and calligraphy. Growing up in Montana, I had a great appreciation for nature’s beauty. It is that beauty of shape, color and line, pleasing to my eyes and soul, which I attempt to share through my work. Residing now in South Carolina, my work draws on the beauty of coastal birds and the elegance of the swans found in Sumter’s own Swan Lake Iris Gardens, ” Carberry says.
