Gallery at Dock Street Theatre in Charleston, SC, Presents Works by Katharine Hastie

The City Gallery at the Dock Street Theatre in Charleston, SC, will present an exhibit of acrylic on paper by local artist Katharine Hastie, from Aug. 20 through Sept. 18, 2003, entitled Katharine Hastie: Recent Paintings.

Hastie was born and raised in Charleston. She grew up on a former plantation with acres of farm, open fields and abandoned slave dwellings. In 1970, she received her BA in History from the College of Charleston, and later studied at the Pratt Institute in Italy in 1985. She has additional training from the Day Studio of Decorative Painting, New York City, Lorenzo de Medici in Florence in 1995; the Ruskin School at Oxford University in 1999-2000; and most recently the College of Charleston.

Hastie has been featured in solo exhibitions at Jan Goin Gallery (1989) and A. Zola (1994). Since 1992 she has been exhibiting her work from her Charleston studio.

Hastie comments on her work: "This recent group of paintings is about remembering and shared experience. A trumpet vine weaves a story, a chair speaks of the person who sat there, a lone female figure is the icon for any woman. The work combines the imagined and what I have felt or seen. Variation in line, color, and form are the essential mechanics and of the most concern to me."
