The Wells Gallery in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Evan Harrington and Mark Bailey
The Wells Gallery in
Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Duo, featuring
a variety of paintings from two young and prolific artists, Evan
Harrington and Mark Bailey, on view from Aug. 6 - 20, 2010.
Evan Harrington is currently enrolled in his senior year at the acclaimed Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art, where he received a merit scholarship. During his five years at the Wells Gallery, he has become associated with his definitive still life renderings, stating "I create a stage- not for humans, but for my characters, which are fruits or vases." Duo will feature Harrington's popular still lifes, along with a variety of scenes such as a brilliantly lit shrimp boat at sunset, entitled Dry Dock.
Oregon resident, Mark Bailey is known for his dramatically illuminated urban interior scenes, but he will explore other subjects such as landscape and still life in Duo. His attention to light and form combined with his signature brushstrokes have made his paintings in high demand during his short time at the gallery. Featured in Duo is a scene of four street musicians entitled Pike, where Bailey perfectly captures the atmosphere and mood of the music through his color choices and brushstroke technique.
Relocated to Meeting Street next to the Gibbes Museum of Art in historic downtown Charleston, the Wells Gallery features fine regional art from a diversity of perspectives in various mediums, including painting and hand-blown glass. The gallery is a member of the Charleston Fine Art Dealers' Association and the French Quarter Gallery Association. An additional gallery is located in The Sanctuary Hotel at Kiawah Island, SC.
