The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department is pleased to announce that works by members of the Goose Creek Artists Guild will be on exhibit at the North Charleston City Gallery from February 4-27, 2016. A free reception will be held at the gallery on Thursday, February 4, from 5:00-7:00pm. Many of the exhibiting artists will be present and refreshments will be served. The public is invited to attend.
The Goose Creek Artists Guild, founded in 1982, will present its 33rd Annual Judged Show featuring two-dimensional works in a variety of subjects and mediums. Comprised of artists from Berkeley, Dorchester, and Charleston counties, guild members from all levels of expertise express their talents in oil, watercolor, acrylic, pastel, drawing, and mixed media. Ribbons for Best of Show as well as first, second, and third place in multiple categories will be awarded by guest juror, Karole Turner Campbell (KTC). A retired New York City principal, KTC now works as a full time visual artist with a passion for all things creative. Her full body of work is quite eclectic, ranging from representational to abstract, and two dimensional to three dimensional. Since moving to the Lowcountry in 2006, KTC has immersed herself in the local arts community by curating exhibits and displaying her works in solo shows, group shows, and galleries throughout the state.
The Goose Creek Artists Guild meets monthly for live demonstrations and business to further its purpose "to bring together a group of artists interested in self-improvement, public recognition, and the promotion of the arts in the community."
