HOW DO YOU HUE

Dorothy Shain

Occasionally, I hit it big in the realm of house-sitting. When this happens, I pack up my paints, brushes, and crazy creek so I can spend the weekends painting dockside. There is really nothing like salty air and views of the Carolina marshes to energize and inspire you. The paintings featured in the image above are examples of color studies and timed paintings I often practice to get back in the swing of things. My favorite author, Pat Conroy, says it best, 

“Charleston has a landscape that encourages intimacy and partisanship. I have heard it said that an inoculation to the sights and smells of the Carolina lowcountry is an almost irreversible antidote to the charms of other landscapes, other alien geographies. You can be moved profoundly by other vistas, by other oceans, by soaring mountain ranges, but you can never be seduced. You can even forsake the lowcountry, renounce it for other climates, but you can never completely escape the sensuous, semitropical pull of Charleston and her marshes.”

- Pat Conroy, The Lords of Discipline

I could not agree more, Mr. Conroy.

SETTING UP SHOP

Dorothy Shain

After a long period of time knocking on the door of Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston, South Carolina I finally received an email saying I was in! Thank. The. Lord.

Redux is a hot spot in the South for emerging and established artists like Teil DuncanKatie Long StevensonLulie Wallace,  Raven Wilson. It is incredible to me that these ladies are not only doing what they love, but they are making waves, to say the least. I knew it would be a huge privilege and learning opportunity to be around them each day! Please also notice that I said ladies . . . yep, you heard me. Redux is predominantly women - and they are killing it! Watch out world! 

So I am so thankful for the opportunity Redux has given me and their hospitality. I have also come realize the importance of art supporting non-profits like themselves. I wouldn't be able to make moves without their backing and support. 

Support. Local. Arts!
