Coleman Fine Art in Charleston, SC, Offers New Works by Mary Whyte
Fine Art in Charleston, SC, has released 23 new works by Mary
Whyte including pencil sketches, watercolor studies, and large
studio works, which will be on view through July 10, 2004.
The body of work continues to explore aspects of life in the South Carolina Lowcountry, the genre for which Whyte is most recognized. Images of shy young girls standing among the live oak trees, their grandmothers' quilts, and the flora of the Lowcountry are abundant in the exhibit, and will hearken to Whyte's acclaimed book, Alfreda's World (Wyrick & Company).
Every painting tells its own story and reveals the true spirit of the model. Whyte paints her subjects during private moments that we would normally not have the privilege of seeing and has the capability of transferring the ordinary into nothing less than extraordinary.
Whyte is most recognized for her watercolor portraits and her Lowcountry Series, a moving collection of watercolors that depict the rich heritage and culture of the Gullah people. Her work is exhibited in over three hundred corporate, university, museum, and private collections. Whyte has been teaching for over twenty years and is the illustrator of more than a dozen children's books. She has written several feature articles for American Artist, The Artist's Magazine and Watercolor magazines. She is also the author of the popular instructional book, Watercolor for the Serious Beginner, published by Watson-Guptill and now in its sixth printing.
Images of works in the exhibit are available to view on the gallery's website at (www.colemanfineart.com).
