Citadel Square Baptist Church in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Artist on Fire for Piccolo Spoleto Festival

The Citadel Square Baptist Church in Charleston, SC, will present an exhibit of works by members of the Artist on Fire group entitled Sweet, as a presentation of the Piccolo Spoleto Festival, on view on the third floor of the building, from May 23 through June 7, 2013. A reception will be held on May 23, from 5-8pm.

Everybody loves chocolate, right? Babies, cakes, candy, birds, young love... What are the things in life that make you want to celebrate? What causes you to soar and be more freely you? What just makes you feel good? Artist on Fire presents “Sweet!”, a visual arts exhibit celebrating the good things in life.

Twelve artists explore “sweet” things from the beauty of outer space (Melanie Spinks) to moments in relationships you never forget like young sisters sharing a milkshake (Alex Radin) and the first taste of a pomegranate (Amelia Whaley). Undiscovered wonders, the beauty of nature, and the creativity of a child’s imagination are the focus of young artist Elianna Radin who is exhibiting for her second year. Karen DeLoach and Jan Placko take you to the land of ceramic chocolate delicacies through a sculptural Pop art installation room complete with cafe tables and menu.

The show will feature paintings by Alex Radin, Hilary Siber, and Elianna Radin; photography exhibits by Kimberly Krauk, Helena Rutan, and Jacquelyn Hiott & Bethany Jaenicke; a sculptural installation by Karen DeLoach and Jan Placko; a short abstract film by Sara Radin; mixed media works by Amelia Whaley and Melanie Spinks; and poetry by Helena Rutan, Alex Radin, and Sara Radin. There will be music by Volcanoes in the Kitchen at various times throughout the show.
