Artists' Guild of Spartanburg in Spartanburg, SC, Offers Works by Carol Beth Icard

The Artists' Guild of Spartanburg will present the exhibit, Waxing Poetic, featuring a collection of wax and oil paintings by Landrum, SC, artist Carol Beth Icard, on view at the Guild Gallery in the Chapman Cultural Center in Spartanburg, SC, from July 1 - 28, 2010.

The title, Waxing Poetic, aptly describes Icard's media and muse. The translucent property of beeswax, melted pure, or as a component of cold wax medium, allows her to explore subtle color changes in her painting. The ambiguity of her subject matter invites viewers to invent lyrical tales from their own imaginations.

"If I had to coin a term for my style, I'd call it 'Introspective Abstraction,'" says Icard. "I consider my work to be emotional and evocative, a poetic reflection expressed through visual language."

Icard trained in the arts mecca of the Berkshires in western Massachusetts along with several stints in Italy. But it was after she moved to South Carolina in 2002 that she truly hit her artistic stride. With an expanded studio and new sources of inspiration, she has produced work that has earned solo shows in prestigious galleries throughout the Carolinas and beyond.
