Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC, Offers Works by Melissa Gravano

Roper Hospital in Charleston, SC, is presenting an exhibit of graphite drawings by Lowcounty artist, Melissa Gravano, on view in the hospital's admitting hallway, through Oct. 31, 2010.

Included in this exhibit will be portraits of the youth at Colleton Middle School in Walterboro, SC, who Gravano mentors on art. "I see the vulnerability that at times is hidden by a tough exterior. At other times it is not hidden at all. I see their beauty and their strength and I'm not convinced that they are aware of it. I want to bring it to the surface for others and the students themselves to see."

Gravano studied at The Cooper Union School of Art in New York City and at Southampton College at Long Island University. Her work was included in the 25th and 26th annual Piccolo Spoleto Juried Art Exhibit, and was featured in the Post and Courier's Charleston Scene as Artist of the Week, May 20th, 2010.
