Featured Artist, Suzanne Aulds

Suzanne Aulds is excited to present an exhibition of her latest work at Thibault Gallery, 815 Bay Street, Beaufort, SC.

Suzanne has been a resident of South Carolina since 2000, residing in Charleston and, for the past 13 years, Hilton Head Island. She works in all genres but her latest body of work has focused primarily on still life and landscapes based on her local surroundings. Suzanne finds inspiration from the dynamism inherent in compositions that portray contrasts, and, in particular, the blend of organic and geometric shapes. She is a self-professed colorist, and uses the elements of bright versus dull, and light versus dark, to create compelling compositions. Suzanne’s work is traditional in that it is essentially realist, but her portrayal of traditional elements is unmistakably contemporary.

Suzanne graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in the fall of 2014, and has been exhibiting in galleries and at art fairs all over the southeastern United States ever since. When not travelling, she works from her studio at her home in Hilton Head Island every day.

Please join Suzanne at Thibault Gallery on First Friday, May 5, 2017, from 5-8 p.m., to view her newest paintings and enjoy some wine and hors d’oeuvres. She would love an opportunity to discuss her work and art-related experiences with you.

Lane Palmisano is the "Featured Artist for April" at Thibault Gallery, 815 Bay Street, Beaufort, SC. She invites the public to meet her and view her paintings during Art Walk/First Friday, April 7th from 5:00pm-8:00pm.  Wine and hors'doreuves will be served with live music by David Laughlin.

Lane is a New Jersey native and graduate of Monmouth University.  After college, she ventured south to Norfolk, VA where she taught art studio courses at Wesleyan College and Tidewater Community college along with exhibiting her work at art shows in New York City, New Jersey, Virginia and Washington, D.C.  Lane was juried into the acclaimed Torpedo Factory Art Center in Alexandria, VA, where she taught art and maintained an art studio for twenty-eight years.

As an award-winning, imaginative oil painter - a colorist - Lane is equally enthralled with figurative still life and, more recently, landscapes genres.  Since moving to Bluffton, SC in 2012, she has been "captivated with the myriad color and perpetual movement of the Low Country tidal marshlands."

Her contemporary oil paintings, which she refers to as "Spiritscapes", are drenched in color with thick impasto application, loose textures and delicate glazes.  Lane's luminous paintings are in private and public collections throughout the world.

"I am searching for the eternal healing essence that color can achieve in these "Scapes."

Lane's paintings are her personal tribute to all the Impressionists....the artists of light.
