Lowcountry Light: New Works by Betty Anglin Smith, April 3 – 17

Join us tonight as we present new works by Betty Anglin Smith in an exhibition entitled Lowcountry Light.

“The ambient light of the Lowcountry has fascinated artists for decades if not centuries,” Betty says. She’s, of course, among those artists: “Light fades and softens under the cloak of humidity, becoming mysteriously intriguing. And then as the haze gives way, we are entertained by the rich colors from the marshes to the waterways and the sky above. Always new and always changing. Mother Nature ‘shows off,’ and we are anything but bored!”

Betty has been painting the Lowcountry for over 40 years, but she’s been particularly drawn to its lively marshes, winding creeks, and splendid skies since she and her husband renovated an abandoned cottage in Meggett, South Carolina, about 15 years ago. In that cottage is Betty’s painting studio, which overlooks the flats of the Wadmalaw Sound. All she has to do is look outside her window to find inspiration in the light of the Lowcountry, and she finds it often.

Lowcountry Light will be on view at Anglin Smith Fine Art, at 9 Queen Street in Charleston, from April 3 to 17. There will be an opening reception on Friday, April 3, from 5 – 8pm.
