Smith Killian Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Shannon Smith

Smith Killian Fine Art in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Southern Soul, featuring works by Shannon Smith, marking her tenth solo show with the gallery, on view from May 7 - 21, 2010.

The exhibit includes recent works in oil that combine Smith's expressive colors and her ability to capture the contrasting light with scenes from the Lowcountry. A true stolen moment is captured in Lowcountry Fishing, as the subject casts her rod into the tide, surrounded by the dense lowlands, and a soft light illuminating the water.

Smith states, "This body of works challenged me to try and capture the soul of our beloved  Lowcountry. Through landscape, figurative and still life, I have tried to trace our heritage of living and thriving off of the fruits of our precious land and sea basin. From farming cotton, culling tomatoes and collards, fishing and harvesting oysters from the saltwater creeks to witnessing the grand old souls of our palmettos and mossy oak trees, we can begin to appreciate the unique qualities that are vital to our southern culture, the very spiritual makeup of our Southern Souls."

Smith-Killian 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, and photographer Tripp Smith. Sculptures in bronze by Darrell Davis; works in oil by Kim English, Don Stone, NA and Susan Romaine are also available. Subject matter ranges from local and European landscapes to architectural works and still life.
