The Gallery offers art showing for Spring Art Walk
The Gallery at 802 Bay St. in downtown Beaufort is pleased to offer a fun and stimulating show for Spring Art Walk.
Join The Gallery on Saturday, March 17th during the Guild of Beaufort Galleries’ Spring Art Walk from 5-8 PM as they celebrate the work of two local artists. Featuring furniture designer Rex Hunter aka “Red Fish Rex” and painter Marlies Williams in a joint show titled “Naturally Inspired”.
Both artists are drawn to the natural beauty of the Lowcountry and harness their creative inspiration from their surroundings.
Rex Hunter works with exotic woods celebrating the beauty of the grain and embellishes Mother Nature’s work by creating functional works that fit into any environment or aesthetic. He loves to play with the contrast of different species and create final pieces that are graceful, simple and elegant. Mr. Hunter has been working away in the studio and promises to bring some fabulously fresh creations with a bit of a retro flair.
Marlies Williams’ tactile paintings depict the beauty of the Lowcountry, but not of your normal perspective.
Ms. Williams concentrates on the intimate viewpoint of the marsh grasses. Her paintings beautifully capture the subtly of the changes of the grasses as the seasons bring new life into the environment where water and earth collide. Marlies’ works are rich in color and bold in stroke creating exciting and dynamic surfaces. Her works grace the walls of many Lowcountry homes and beyond.
No Lowcountry art collection is complete without at least one of Marlies’ works.
