Nina Liu and Friends Gallery in Charleston, SC, Offers Exhibition Based on Trees

Nina Liu and Friends is presenting an exhibition entitled Trees through Aug. 30, 2003. The exhibition features lithographs, pastels, ceramics, photographs and works in other media. Nina Liu, the gallery's owner, has assembled works by South Carolina and national artists for the exhibition.

Jim Creal, a Spartanburg, SC, print maker, depicts the density of Lowcountry landscapes in lithographs that recall nineteenth century images of South American jungles. Focusing on trees in urban landscapes, Iowa artist Sharon Burns Knutson's pastels contrast with Creal's prints in subject, scale, and color.

John Moore Jeri Burdick

Eutawville, SC, ceramist Jeri Burdick's tiles and vases in carved, wood-fired clay depict pinecones, twigs, and bark. Burdick's stylized forms play against the realism of the color photographs of trees by John Moore of Charleston, SC. Moore's subtle use of color distinguishes his work from large format silver gelatin photographs by Michael Johnson, who hails from Illinois.

Janet Kozachek, an Orangeburg, SC, artist, paints trees from around the world in somber-toned oils that evoke winter's chill. California artist Debra Conklin uses oil pastels to make images that sparkle like stained glass.

Now in its seventeenth year, Nina Liu and Friends is located in the historic Poinsett house at 24 State Street in Charleston.
