Aiken Artist Guild in Aiken, SC, Features Works by Carol Sue and Forrest Roberts

The Aiken Artist Guild in Aiken, SC, will present the exhibit, Mostly Africa, featuring works by award winning artists, Carol Sue and Forrest Roberts, on view in the Aiken Art Guild Gallery at the Aiken Center for the Arts, from Aug. 1-31, 2011. A reception will be held on Aug. 20, from 11am-2pm.

The exhibit will feature Carol Sue’s oil paintings and Forrest’s photography representative of their various trips to Africa including recent trips to India and the Brazalian Pantanal.

Carol Sue has received numerous awards for her work and her paintings are in collections internationally. She studied with such artists as Ira Brakoff, Marc Chabot, Gregg Dreutz, Al Beyer, and C.W. Mundy. Her work is on display at Gallery on the Row in Augusta, GA, and at the Aiken Center for the Arts. Carol Sue is also an accomplished organist studying at the Royal School of Church Music and at the North German Organ Academy.

In 2003, Forrest joined the “digital revolution” and his photography went from the usual family photographs to a new level. Carol Sue, his wife, expressed an interest in producing some limited edition prints of her work and “I knew I had to improve my photography and printing,” Forrest reveals.

Forrest felt that this challenge required study, training and practice which lead him to workshops with Art Morris, Todd Gustafson, Stephen Johnson and Doug Gardner. He also attended workshops at the Santa Fe School of Photography and a Black & White printing workshop with Eliot Cohen. Three of these instructors specialized in birds and wildlife so most of his current work is in wildlife and nature photography. Forrest uses a Nikon DSLR camera.
