Thanks to those of you who stopped by for the art walk (Nov. 1) – a good time was had by all! Even with the threat of rain the gallery was full of people. We had a great response to the Surrounded by Water show! There is nothing better than sharing the enthusiasm of this art that we so enjoy!
That same weekend was Charleston Fine Art Weekend (CFADA). There were artists painting in Washington Park on Saturday, Nov. 2, and it was a treat to watch them from start to finish! Each artist takes the painting back to their respective gallery where there is a box to place a sealed bid. Each gallery will notify the highest bidder on December 16. The money raised will be presented to CFADA who in turn gives it to local schools for art supplies. We think it’s important to support the arts in our schools! This year, from Anglin Smith Fine Art, Shannon Smith Hughes and Susan Mayfield painted in the park, in addition to the auction pieces created in the park, Betty Anglin Smith and Jennifer Smith Rogers each donated a painting to be included. So if you see something that catches your eye, make your way to the gallery and place a bid!
Susan Mayfield is a visiting artist from Colorado. The piece in the auction is a pastel, but she also paints with oil. She is a delightful person, it was exciting to have her participate in this event and include her painting in the auction!
Below are the paintings up for auction at Anglin Smith Fine Art… You can also click on the link for each artist to see more paintings that are available (full price, not auction pieces):
