Exhibition by Mary Whyte Travels Around South Carolina
In Sept., Mary Whyte's 27 original watercolor illustrations, from the acclaimed children's book, P is for Palmetto, will begin a 7-month journey across the state of SC. The traveling exhibit will open in Beaufort, this Sept., 2002, and stop in Aiken, the Spartanburg County Museum of Art in Spartanburg, the State Museum in Columbia, and finally complete the tour in Mar., 2003, at Coleman Fine Art in Charleston.
P is for Palmetto is a collection of descriptive rhyme and appealing watercolor images that covers this beautiful southeastern state from A to Z. Author Carol Crane captures the diverse features of SC with her flowing verse and solid expository text, while Whyte's imaginative and colorful watercolor paintings add the perfect finishing touch. South Carolinians, young and old, will treasure P is for Palmetto, published by Sleeping Bear Press, and educators will find its two-tiered teaching format extremely useful in their classrooms.
Whyte is best known for her watercolor portraits and her Lowcountry Series, a moving collection of watercolors that depicting the rich heritage and culture of the Gullah people. Her work is exhibited in over two hundred corporate, university, museum, and private collections. Whyte has been teaching for over twenty years and is the illustrator of more that a dozen children's books. She has written several feature articles for American Artist 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 fourth printing.
