The Charleston Artist Guild announces Kenneth Hanger as the Featured Artist for the month of April. His exhibit, Rock On is a collection of paintings that reflect the artist’s recent venture into watercolor and oils to reflect the rockier side of life.
Kenneth is a local artist who has painted many years in the lowcountry and in the hills of North Carolina. He began many years ago as a watercolorist, then took on oils as well. A recent workshop brought him back into the watercolor world, so this show includes both. In the last several years, the palette knife has formed the basis for many of his oils which will be evident.
“I really like being able to go back and forth from the beautiful, soft, lucent shapes that watercolors bring about, to the precise and dramatic forms that oils and particularly the palette knife create. I think you will enjoy both. I also enjoy flower still life and both ventures offer a different view of nature. My interpretation can range from photorealism to impressionistic, so get ready for the ride.”
You are invited to join Kenneth for an opening reception, which is free to the public, on Friday, April 7, 2017, from 5pm-8pm. The gallery, located at 160 East Bay Street, is open daily from 11-6pm. Sales made at the gallery support the nonprofit Guild’s community outreach work. The show will be on display from April 1 until April 30, 2017.
