The Charleston Artist Guild Gallery is pleased to present “Color Notes”, a collection of new works by Ginny Versteegen. This award-winning artist will be the featured artist at the CAG Gallery during the month of November. The exhibit will continue through November 30.
As a contemporary Impressionist, Ginny Versteegen has taken her color notes to a new level. The elements of color, soft edges and drama of the landscape all come together in her latest series of paintings. Connect with the artist and nature as you view this new body of work. From the light filled color notes of “Taking Flight ” to the drama of “Spring Palette”, Versteegen unveils the majesty found in color and light. Her use of rich, vibrant color gives the viewer a selective impression of a scene. Through the use of oil paint she expresses her feelings about the subject and the time of day. Color notes taken from her plein air paintings and nature are her inspiration. Working outdoors in plein air, allows the artist to gather information for her paintings first hand.
Ginny Versteegen moved to Charleston County in 2006, after traveling the world teaching art and painting. Her work exhibits an international flair for she has lived in Brazil, Holland and Spain. Ginny has been blessed by immediate acceptance into the art community of Charleston with solo exhibits, awards and purchase prizes from the City of Charleston, as well as the North Charleston Arts Council.
