Fine Arts Center of Kershaw Co. in Camden, SC, Features Works by Claire Farrell

The Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County in Camden, SC, will present Monotypes and More, featuring works by Claire Farrell, on view in the Bassett Gallery, from Sept. 10 through Oct. 16, 2013. A reception will be held on Sept. 10, from 5:30-7pm.

The Bassett Gallery’s first exhibition features works by Columbia artist Claire Farrell. Her work is a mix of monotypes, landscapes and portraits. Farrell is a representational artist building on the tradition of nineteenth century artists such as Joaquin Sorolla, Mary Cassatt, John Singer Sargent, Edgar Degas and James McNeill Whistler.

Farrell paints primarily in oil, and it is in this medium that she has achieved the most success. Her work is in corporate and private collections throughout the United States, including Wachovia Bank, Coca-Cola, Duke University and the Columbia Convention Center, to name a few. She has won numerous “Best-in-Show” awards, including first place in the San Diego Watercolor Society in 1989 and the annual South Carolina Watermedia Show in 2009. This was particularly meaningful since Farrell was a founding member of that organization.
