The Charles Street Gallery in Beaufort, SC, Features Works by Amiri Geuka Farris

In celebration of the 300th anniversary of the City of Beaufort's charter, nationally recognized artist Amiri Geuka Farris has created 20 new paintings that honor the past, present, and future of the City of Beaufort. His new works are on display at the historic Charles Street Gallery in Beaufort, SC, through June 12, 2010.
"The City of Beaufort is renowned for its impressive lowcountry feeling, antebellum architecture and Gullah culture," says Farris.  "I am honored to create Beaufort's beauty in my own unique style," he added. 

In honor of Beaufort's tricentennial the 20 moderate-sized paintings will be on sale for $300 dollars in keeping with the theme. Farris's work is highly sought after, and this will be a good opportunity to view and purchase some of his new works. 

Farris is known for his dynamic works of art. His work uses a social realist style combined with original imagery to create art that celebrates life and his contemporary experiences. Amiri's works are full of exuberant color and intimate personal experiences. His deep engaging layers invite you to look deeper into the painting, where images and colors dance across the canvas in an energetic display of expression. His work has been exhibited in major venues nationally and internationally, from the US Capital in Washington, DC, to Paris, France and St. Petersburg, Russia.

Farris was named the 2008 Artist-of-the-Year at Historic Penn Center National Historic Landmark on St. Helena Island, SC. He is a professor of art at The University of South Carolina Beaufort, where he teaches studio and fine arts. His art work was featured as part of 2010 USCB's Golden Jubilee Celebrating 50 Years of Higher Education in the Lowcountry.
