Charleston Artist Guild Gallery in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Jane Hart

Charleston Artist Guild Gallery in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Inside/Outside, featuring works by Jane Hart, on view from Sept. 1 - 30, 2010.

Hart works in a variety of mediums, but her goals remain the same. "I'm always trying to portray a particular feeling through the use of the basics: composition, color, value, and texture. My goal is to capture the play of light on an object, to show the overlooked color and texture of a landscape, or to provide a unique perspective on an everyday scene". Hart has studied with a number of well-known artists;  Master Pastelists Claire Miller Hopkins and Doug Dawson, pastelists Ben Nita McAdam, Judith Carducci, and Tammy Papa; painters Teresa Prater, Rick McClure, Hilarie Lambert, Martin Ahrens, Ann Merrill, and Joyce Hall.
Hart grew up in a suburb of Chicago before moving to Denmark, SC, in her junior year of high school. She began her life as an artist after working and raising a family. She was inspired to paint interiors after taking a second tour of Drayton Hall here in Charleston. The natural daylight was coming in through the windows, lending a stark, almost abstract quality to the spaces inside the historic home. There was a sense of mystery in the empty house. As Hart's tour group left each room, she took some photographs hoping to capture and recreate the light. She also paints outdoors ­ "plein air" painting. 

"Selecting a subject from all the possibilities and simplifying this into an interesting and pleasing composition ­ all before the light changes too much ­ is a great challenge to me," adds Hart.
