Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston Works by Karole Turner Campbell

Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, will present Reflections of Rainbow Row, featuring works by KTC (aka: Karole Turner Campbell), on view at the Charleston Artist Guild Gallery, from June 1 - 30, 2013. A reception will be held on June 6, from 6-8pm.

Campbell is a mixed media artist because she loves the versatility and unique modes of expression it allows. It expands her ability to communicate. It’s like being multilingual. She gets to speak many “visual” languages.

“Arts are the stuff of life” is my motto (kudos to Mr. Shakespeare). I have an MFA in Drawing and Painting from City University of New York, BS in Art Education from North Carolina A&T State University and graduated from the prestigious HS of Music & Art in New York City, as an art major. Since moving to the Lowcountry in 2006, I’ve returned to my visual arts and I love it!,” says Campbell.

Campbell grew up in NYC and utilized the plethora of cultural and artistic opportunities to gain a cosmopolitan appreciation for all the arts.

Campbell offered the following statement: “This show was inspired by the beautiful homes on ‘Rainbow Row’. There is something sublime about these pastel colored buildings layered between the blue sky and the gray streets. This pastel and gray palette is punctuated by earthly browns, leafy greens and the stark blacks of the intricate iron work fences. By condensing these colors and textures into their most basic elements, my abstract interpretations invite you in to partake of this visual tour of ‘Rainbow Row’.”
