Gallery 202 in Greenville, SC, Offers Works by 3 Local Women
Gallery 202 in Greenville, SC, will be presenting an exhibit featuring works by three very talented local female artists, Rebecca Jonas, Linda McCune and Carole Tinsley, on view from Aug. 4 through Sept. 2, 2006.
"I have collaborated with these three wonderful artists for years. They all share a common thread ... passion for the arts!," commented David Starzec, Gallery 202 curator. "Local art is thriving in Greenville and these women have played an important pioneering role ... education." They have all used their talents to teach young students a vision into the arts. While at the same time provide Greenville with wonderful, hi-end art.
Rebecca Jonas received a BA from University of Wisconsin. She first came to SC to teach art. She continues to promote the arts by serving on the boards and committees of Upstate Visual Arts and Metropolitan Arts Council. "There are happy accidents in art, though if you can repeat them, they become a technique." This has given birth to her newest direction... Photo Nouveau.
Linda Williams McCune, a Professor of Art and important permanent faculty member of the School of Visual Arts at Greenville Tech's Greer Campus since 1989, has been featured in over 300 one-artist and group exhibitions around the US and in Switzerland and New Zealand. The exhibit will be featuring three mediums from McCune including drawings, sculpture and original prints.
Carole Knudson Tinsley, has taught art at Seneca, SC, Junior High for 6 years and also taught privately for 15 years. Many of her students attended the Governor's School for the Arts. Her works are in private and corporate collections throughout the US and other countries. Her studio-gallery is in Greenville. This exhibition will be showing new abstract paintings with all types of water media, painting in layers, burnishing away, collaging and scarring the surface.
The exhibition will present over 60 pieces, 20 from each artist. With the variety of mixed media, this will be one to see.
