Harriet Marshall Goode is a full-time artist, instructor, juror, speaker, gallery owner and art consultant living in Rock Hill, SC. In addition to memberships in regional and national watercolor societies, Goode is a founding member of the Piedmont Artists and Open Studio; a board member of the Museum of York County; a past president of the South Carolina Watercolor Society; and on the advisory board of Winthrop University's School of Visual and Performing Arts.
Genie Marshall Wilder is a signature member of the National Watercolor Society, the Midwest Watercolor Society, the Georgia Watercolor Society, and a member in excellence in the South Carolina Watercolor Society. Residing in Clinton, SC, she has served two terms on the board of directors of the South Carolina Arts Commission and two terms on the board of directors of the Laurens County Arts Council.
Alex Palkovich began drawing and sculpting as a child in the Carpathian Mountains of the Soviet Union. An advanced degree in mechanical engineering has given him the opportunity to work in Haifa, Mexico City and Oxford before coming to Florence with General Electric as the company's global magnet operations manager. He has remained actively involved in the arts throughout his travels, exhibiting in Russia, Israel, Belgium, England, Mexico and the US. In addition to his representational sculptures of human and animal figures, Palkovich has been drawn in recent years to furniture design. He has enjoyed the challenge of taking a motif and adapting the appropriate qualities of disparate materials to create functional and surprisingly comfortable chairs.
