Before I began heading home early in the morning, on my last visit to the beautiful city of Charleston,  I pulled over to look at the colorful, glowing sky and the church steeple of Emanuel A.M.E..

I have to tell you - figuring out the X in my series  A to Z  was mind-boggling until I started focusing on the X as a pattern rather than a word.

"Cannonball"

In Charleston, South Carolina - my favorite gallery with some rockin' artists is Robert Lange Studios.  In most galleries in the city you'll find traditional works of art, mostly featuring low-country landscapes and the city's landmarks catering to tourists.  Robert Lange, an impressive painter himself,  broke that mold and created a gallery of modern contemporary works catering the young and hip crowds and collectors.

I would love to be one of his featured artists someday - and that's why I was thrilled to be invited in an upcoming group show titled 'Fluent', opening in The Vendue, a boutique hotel just right around the corner from the gallery.  The Vendue calls itself  'Charleston's Art Hotel', hosting year-round group shows of original art - very, very cool place.

The show 'Fluent' opens June 11th, with over 40 artists represented by Robert Lange Studios.

The theme is along the lines of water, motion, fluent.  This is my piece titled 'Cannonball' - a series of 6 - 5 x 7" panels featuring my neighbor, Rocky.




Here are the individual paintings a little larger....

If you're in Charleston, please stop in at The Vendue to see the show.
