The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is excited to present This is Us, a collection of works by featured artists Faye Sullivan and Susanne Frenzel. Faye’s collection of oil paintings reflects the beauty of the lowcountry’s coast. Susanne’s paintings are abstract using several techniques and media.
Faye Sullivan is a former art instructor and graduate of the University of East Carolina with a B.A. and Master’s Degree in Art. Faye moved to the lowcountry from Massachusetts fifteen years ago and was inspired by the beauty that surrounded her and decided her focus as an artist should be seascapes and marsh scenes. Water seemed all important in both themes, therefore she chose to make water her main concentration. Faye states “Water is the ultimate chameleon – water reflects the clouds, time of day, wind, sky, and all the many things which surround it. It is this reflective quality which is very helpful in repeating colors to unify the scene”. Faye’s goal is to create beauty through soft edges and hopefully set a mood of peacefulness and solitude. She believes it is this softness that makes her work easily recognizable.
The exhibit will run from November 1 through November 30 with an opening reception on Friday, November 2 from 5-8 PM.
