Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Ginny Versteegen

The Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Low Country Impressions, featuring works by Ginny Versteegen, on view from July 1 - 31, 2010.

By turns, Versteegen's paintings provide a journal of life in the Low Country. From the quiet majesty of the marsh, to the hustle and bustle of the city to the simplicity of the Farmer's Market, the artist captures glimpses of an inspiring, "insiders" view of low country life. Sharing the images with viewers by using the warm palette of the area, she has assembled a colorful collection of landscapes and still lives rendered in oils.

Versteegen was selected as the 2010 Charleston Farmers Market Artist. Peter Piper's Peppers, the  award winning image that has been reproduced on Posters, Aprons and T shirts and bags, is part of the Market Series that she created. These items may be found at the Charleston Farmers Market at Marion Square on Saturday mornings.

Versteegen's prize winning marsh series will be included in this exhibit. Quiet scenes with strong color and light are found in this series. The magical skies and water reflections are often interrupted with the graceful presence of the magnificent marsh wildlife in this collection oil paintings.
Versteegen's artwork is found in many collections at home and abroad. Before making her home in Mount Pleasant, SC, she resided in many states across the US as well as, Brazil, Holland and Spain. All of these experiences have given her work an international flair. Versteegen's degree in Art Education (Edinboro University, PA) has enabled her to teach in many schools in the US. Working with children and sharing her lifelong love of art has given Versteegen a rewarding career in art throughout the years.
