Ellis-Nicholson Gallery in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Helen Duckworth

The Ellis-Nicholson Gallery in Charleston, SC, will present Whispers and Song, an exhibition of paintings by Helen Duckworth, on view from May 24 through June 30, 2013. A reception will be held on May 31, from 5-8pm.

Duckworth will be showing works from several collections, including The Vessel, Woman, Dance and A Man and a Woman

Duckworth was born in Yorkshire, England. She began painting as a teenager and emigrated to the United States in the 1960’s. She studied intermittently at the Art Students League and the School of Visual Arts in New York City, concentrating on drawing and portraiture. Mostly self-taught, whilst living 12 year in New York City, Duckworth frequented the Metropolitan Gallery where she found numerous influences and inspiration for her work, although painting mostly from imagination.

In 1977 she moved to South Carolina with her husband and two children. She now lives twelve miles from Charleston, close to marshland and rivers. “The air is thick with everything growing,” she says, “which feeds my ideas for both painting and poetry. My paintings are about feelings,” she continues, “I am trying to express through color and form, the full range of my own emotions.”
