Crescent Gallery in Spartanburg, SC, Offers Works by Rebecca N. King
The Crescent Gallery in Spartanburg, SC, is featuring fifteen oil paintings by Carolina native, Rebecca N. King in the exhibit, The Lady and the Lay of the Land, on view through June 16, 2009. King's love of landscape painting has taken her across oceans and up her native Appalachian mountains in search of new vistas and new ways of seeing them.
In early 2008, King gave birth to a son and was painting on the cliffs of Dingle, Ireland, with baby in tow by summer. "Balancing the challenges of art and motherhood has been wonderful and terrifying. But I have found a new sense of immediacy in what I am trying to do, and I am finding that my landscapes are taking a more narrative turn."
King's career began
in Asheville, NC, under the tutelage of Ben Long, North Carolina
fresco painter and nationally renowned draftsman. From Long, King
learned to trace artistic inspiration back to Western Europe through
intense study of artistic anatomy and drawing.
This show will feature oil paintings of landscapes from Italy, France, Ireland and the Carolinas. In addition, several figurative paintings and their preparatory drawings will be on view.
