Sales & Events

Long time photographers and friends, Peter Cram, Eric Horan and Mark S. Tierney join forces in a photo exhibition on Hilton Head Island at Picture This Gallery. Titled New Works, Old Friends, the exhibition will run May 19-July 7, 2015 and showcase their recent works, many of them captured while exploring the back waters, maritime forests, marshes and swamps of the South Carolina Lowcountry. An artist reception is open to the public on Friday evening, May 29, 2015 from 6-8 pm.

Through boats, waterways and cameras, the three artists found each other 25 years ago and long before digital cameras turned everyone into a photographer. They met at an island hangout for film photographers, The Camera Place, near Sea Pines circle where it’s owner Fay Rabin (also a photographer) and staff, provided the best lab in the area. Both Cram and Tierney earned staff positions in the photo lab. Their other interests brought them together in the field, sailing, wind surfing and kayaking. A mutual respect for each other’s images grew, as did their friendships. Over time, travel, marriages and raising families, time and space grew between visits. This exhibition brings the artists and their diverse perspectives together in a visual display of common interests

A native of Bluffton, Cram studied photography at Sierra Nevada College in Incline Village, Nevada. A wildlife photographer in his early career, Cram’s work appeared in local art shows and was published in various magazines including South Carolina Wildlife, Natural History and The National Enquirer. After a long hiatus from his photo career, Peter has only recently delved into digital photography shooting for Hurricane Kayaks and mounted a display of his work at Redfish Restaurant Bluffton. Peter can often be found in the salt marsh in a kayak with his camera.

Horan grew up in Colorado on his family’s ranch, fishing, and hunting and on horseback with summers spent in northern Michigan sailboat racing. He graduated from Colorado Mountain College in Commercial Art and Photography. Landing his first job documenting wildlife activity with Colorado Fish Games and Parks Department, began his lifelong study of both photography and the natural world.

Horan worked as a free-lance photographer throughout his career. After training in New York City with some of the top commercial photographers in the industry, he established Eric Horan Photography, Inc. on Hilton Head Island with his wife Jan in 1994. Their company provides a range of collateral material for marketing and advertising purposes as well as fine-art photography prints, gifts, environmental portraiture, corporate assignment and stock photography. Horan also serves as private, photo guide to other photographers in his 19-foot Carolina skiff and has been frequent featured guest on Wild Photo Adventures TV on PBS with host Doug Gardner.

Horan’s work has been recognized in local, regional and international photo competitions and his stock photography is represented internationally. His work has been extensively published. Among the magazines include Business Week, Fortune, Southern Living, Orion, The New York Times Sunday Travel, OUTSIDE, Yachting, Sail and Cruising World and on the cover of Smithsonian. Book publishers include Fodor’s, National Geographic Books and later his own, Carolina Nature, A Photographer’s View of the Carolinas.

Born in Akron, Ohio, Tierney served in the United States Navy from 1977 to 1983. He began working in 4×5” large format on Hilton Head in 1986. By 1988 he juried into Hilton Head Art League’s first annual, juried show and was awarded 2nd place. Since, he has juried into other notable exhibitions including Southern Environmental, a regional traveling exhibition and Coastal Conservation League’s South Carolina region annual. Tierney has been the recipient of a small grant from the Cultural Council of Hilton Head to photograph in California and exhibited as featured solo artist with South Carolina Photographers Guild in Charleston.

Mark Flowers “Bridging the Gap”, EXHIBITION/MIXED MEDIA PAINTINGS
Kristy Higby, “The Other Brother”, DOCUMENTARY FILM

2.higbyflowerscard_front_6x9_rgb2-copy

In 1979 Mark Flowers and Kristy Higby launched their teaching and artistic careers in what was then the sleepy little one square mile town of Bluffton, SC. They taught art at Sea Pines Academy (now Hilton Head Prep) and made art out of several studios on Calhoun St in Bluffton. Kristy created sculpture with felt and Mark absorbed the Lowcountry landscapes in his brightly colored and funky compositions. It was a strong start to their family, teaching, and creative careers.

In 1991 they moved north, with two young boys in tow, to work at the prestigious boarding school in south-central Pennsylvania, Mercersburg Academy. There, for the next 23 years they helped establish a strong fine arts program that was eventually housed in The Burgin Center for the Arts, a 75,000 square-foot fine arts facility that rivals few in the Northeastern boarding school offerings.

Self-Portraits

During that time Kristy turned her creative interest to artists’ books and then to digital documentary filmmaking. Mark continued to exhibit his paintings, which became more narrative and symbolic in nature.

Despite the demands of a boarding school life, both Mark and Kristy made art and carried on an impressive professional career along side their teaching successes. They returned to the Southeast often to exhibit their work and take workshops at the Penland School, NC.

In 2004, he and Kristy purchased a hand-made log cabin just north of Asheville, NC in the community of Alexander. While on summer breaks from Mercersburg, they spent ten years renovating the cabin and just recently built a large studio on the property. In the summer of 2014, they relocated permanently to the property they affectionately call “Mountain Tea”. They are thrilled to be back in the Southeast and part of the creative community of Asheville and the Upstate region of South Carolina.

Mark Flowers and Kristy Higby return to the Hilton Head/Bluffton area to share their art, which reflects their new paths. Kristy wither her new documentary, “The Other Brother” and Mark with hi exhibition titled “Bridging the Gap” brings them full circle back to the area where they got their start. More about their artwork can be found on their website, www.mountainteastudios.com.

BOOK SIGNING: 1pm special guest author Horace Mungin, “A Different Point of View” illustrated by Hampton R. Olfus Jr.
LECTURE: 3pm
ARTIST RECEPTION: 5-7pm

ADDRESS: 78 D Arrow Road, Cypress Square, Hilton Head Island SC 29928

GALLERY HOURS: 9:30am-5:30pm, Tuesday through Friday Saturday 9:30-12:30

All events are free and open to the public.

James Denmark earned his Master of Fine Arts Degree at the prestigious Pratt Institute of Fine Arts in New York largely an improvisational use of the medium of collage with brightly hand colored papers, fabric and objects.
Winston Kennedy, artist, scholar and professor emeritus from Howard University is a painter who visualizes the movement of Africans to the Lowountry.
Arianne King-Comer, an indigo batik artist studied the indigo dye process on a United Nations grant in Oshogbo, Nigeria. She is a graduate of Howard University and has studied textiles at the graduate level at Detroit Center of Creative Studies.
Hampton R. Olfus Jr., a Washingtonian, creates works of art that are direct links to African, Native American and European styles. He worked for three newspapers in the D.C. metro area, as a commercial artist / illustrator.
Fiber artist Addelle Sanders, who weaves silk and metallic cords together, will be showcased. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Addelle pursue her dream and enrolled in New York University‘s Master’s.
The artists are presenting works that draw on traditional African visual signs, symbols and images.
The African Diaspora refers to the communities throughout the world that are descended from the historic movement of people from West & Central Africa. The term has been historically applied in particular to the descendants who were enslaved and shipped to the Americas by way of the Atlantic slave trade.
According to exhibition artist Winston Kennedy, “In a visual sense, some of [the exhibition artists] integrate the traditional African visual signs, symbols and images and others are able to weave formal issues of modernism of art creativity into the universal statements in our production of Western modernism. Therefore, our creative works range from: abstract to figurative abstraction; from realism to photorealism; from conceptual to other discrete modes of time and performance art. We reflect and reclaim an internal cultural gumbo – our studio production stretches across many modalities.”

More information about the book signing with Horace Mungin “A Different Point of View”:
Horace Mungin was born in Hollywood, South Carolina in 1941. He grew up in New York City majoring in English at Fordham University. Horace started writing poetry in the late sixties, just after the genesis of the Black Arts Movement. Some of his early writings appeared in The New York Times.
In the seventies, Horace wrote a column for a Charleston, SC weekly newspaper. The column employed satire to explore a variety of political and social issues. The column was discontinued for a while then syndicated to ten other weekly newspapers and had a six year run. In 1991 a collection of those columns were published under the title Sleepy Willie Talks about Life. In May of 2001, Sleepy Willie Sings the Blues, the second book in the Sleepy Willie series was published. Horace wants to write one more Sleepy Willie book to complete the series. In 2004, the author published The Devil Beats His Wife, a collection of short stories rooted in the Charleston, South Carolina area. In 2006 San Juan Hill a fictional coming of age memoir of three young boys growing up in a New York City public housing project was published. In 2008 Subway; After the Irish, an account of his years as a New York City Subway conductor was released. In 2011 the author returned to poetry with the publication of Poetic Portraits: The African People of San Juan Hill, a book containing mostly loving profiles of the people he lived among in the Amsterdam Housing Projects during the 50’s. His latest book, A Different Point of View, is a 45 year collection of poetry that chronicles the racial changes happening in the United States over that period.
Horace has published in Essence Magazine, Encore newsmagazine, Black Books Bulletin, Disc & That, The Lincoln Review, Blind Beggar Press, Ninety-Six Sampler of South Carolina Poetry, the Point newspaper, Nommo, Black Out Loud and The New York Times. Horace Mungin is listed in the S. C. Writers Directory and the Directory of American Poets and Fiction Writers. He has read his works at the New School for Social Research, Furman University, Moja Arts Festival, Monday Night Blues and Poetry and Piccolo Spoleto. His short fiction has won the Piccolo Spoleto Fiction Open two years running (’01, ’02). He has a popular essay in Heart of the State, a 2013 anthology of South Carolina writers.

EXHIBIT DATES: Monday, June 28 to Saturday, July 19, 2014

ARTIST RECEPTION: Saturday, JULY 12, 5 – 7 PM

LOCATION: Picture This Gallery, 78 D Arrow Road, Cypress Square, Hilton Head, SC

Long time friends, Matthew Crawford and Mark Tierney have come together to share with you a mutual love and passion for the back roads of the South. The two first collaborated on a joint exhibit 25 years ago.

Mark S. Tierney

This exhibit is composed of the first images from an ongoing multimedia documentary on the people and places along SC HWY 321.

Mark Tierney came to the South Carolina Lowcountry by submarine. While that might seem an unusual routing, it fits well in the tale of an artist eager to show us what is under, beside and behind the world we tend to notice. His photographs look intimately at how light defines the reality of the scenes depicted, often suggesting much more.

Mark joined the Navy right out of high school and ended up on a fast-attack submarine based in Charleston. From that home port, he fell in love with the mossy live oaks, swamps, dune fields and tidal channels that comprise the Lowcountry landscape. When he left the Navy, Mark found his way to Hilton Head Island, where he would expand and explore his photographic vision.

Mark has studied extensively – on his own and in workshops – digital capture, image optimization and printing. He has left behind the darkroom and chemistry, preferring the vast power and instant feedback of the best digital tools.

To see more of Mark S. Tierney’s work; markstierney.com or picturethishiltonhead.com

Mark and his partner Mira Scott own Picture This Gallery, Hilton Head Island, SC.

Matthew M. Crawford

As a professional land surveyor, Matthew derives inspiration from dilapidated buildings he finds while working in the field.  The weathered condition of old doors and windows is most suitable to the irregular and imperfect nature of Matthew’s graphite and pastel work.  Recent works are reflecting an interest in southern industrial landscapes.  When travelling, Matthew and his artistic wife, Betsy, search out and photograph old water tanks with plans to use them as the subjects for future joint projects.  In the meantime, some of the tanks make an appearance in Matthew’s current works.

Former residents of Hilton Head, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia, Matthew and Betsy now live in Smithfield, North Carolina.

Saturday Art lecture series
With Cynthia Male

May 10 – Art & Interiors
Trends & Materials – What’s YOUR approach?
Bring pics of an environ you want to change.

The purpose of Fine Art is to promote an uplifted personal awareness beyond the mundane of contemporary belief. Cynthia Male takes this definition as a personal challenge. Her artistic efforts seek to encourage the individual to empower his/her personal creative processes towards experiencing ideas and concepts outside his/her present confines. The understanding, application, and synthesis of using personal creativity in one’s life expands the possibilities of what it means to be human and offers opportunities for enriched human life experience. Cynthia believes the progression of art relies on as many people as possible REALIZING their creative potential. As science continues to push ubiquitous computing with continuous images and gaming into our stream of consciousness, the artist must continue to promote the inner image, the inner message. She is thankful for the art client who appreciates and purchases art; but passionate to introduce and help others to enter into a personal relationship and experience growth through the creative endeavor. This is transformational for the individual and ultimately for culture. To realize art historic moments within each of us and to acknowledge such accomplishments bring the discussion of cultural Art History to a personal level.
Art History: An On Going Pursuit lecture/video series, partially sponsored by the South Carolina Arts Commission with support from the John and Susan Bennett Memorial Arts Fund of the Coastal Community Foundation of SC, is offered to promote interest, understanding, dialogue, and critique regarding the arts and what informs artistic intention and stimulates creative action.

A Celebration of Indigo

untitledExhibit overview: (Download Program for September 14, 2013 event.)

A mixed media exhibition featuring the works of Arianne King-Comer, Jocelyn Châteauvert,  Mary C. Leto,  Amanda Degener, Nancy Mitchell,

Courtney Fall Tomchik, Caren Calafati, Mary Hark, Mira Scott, Carly Neil, Barbara Miller and Mary Kelly.

 

Picture This Gallery is hosting this exhibit as a celebration of indigo.  Hilton Head Island has a rich history that revolves around the production of indigo. Eliza Lucas Pinckney (1722-1793) was a woman of sixteen when she managed her fathers 10 plantations and pioneered large-scale cultivation of indigo in the Lowcounty of South Carolina and locally on Pinckney Island, next to Hilton Head Island. We want to honor the history and elevate the art-form that surrounds this globally sought after dye, “the color that seduced the world”.

Many of these artists are award winning professionals whose works are in private and public, national and international collections. Most have shown their work in famed galleries and museums, most lecture, teach and demonstrate their art form. Several have founded schools, publications and institutions. Most are affiliated with universities, local communities, mentor individuals and groups and have a deep interest in education.

Most of the participating artists are fiber oriented.  This includes papermakers, weavers and textile artists all using indigo primarily as a dye and this color being the key component of the produced work. Also included are sculptors, painters, printmakers and jewelers, and mixed media artists as well as a healer and a thespian and those that are combinations of several disciplines.

While Mary Hark (Hark! Handmade Paper Studio), Jocelyn Chateauvert,(Roselane Studios) Amanda Degener (Cave Paper) and Mary Leto (Moon Tide Paper Studio) each make and dye their own papers all achieve completely different representations of paper and visions of indigo. Mary Hark fashions together room sized richly colored and textured textile like abstract collages from many different handmade papers. Jocelyn chooses specific fibers to be dyed, manipulated while damp, twisted, creased and pressed to make organically formed luminescent paper and silver jewelry.  Amanda, a master papermaker, forms sheets to be delicately dipped in indigo to compliment and spiritually connect with letter pressed poems by Stuart Kestenbaum for this exhibit.  Mary Leto binds her papers made of gathered indigo plants and dye into artist’s books without words to capture fleeting moments and memories.

Arianne King-Comer, Carly Neil and Mary Kelly explore the most traditional use of indigo dyeing fabric and wool, again different approaches and widely different results.  Arrianne is a textile artist in the most traditional way growing her own indigo and using African forms of batik and indigo dyeing.  Swirling patterns and designs on cloth as large as sails using primarily indigo by which she honors her heritage. Colorful scenes of her St. Helena Island home- batik (wax resist) on smaller panels are hung like the finest museum paintings.  Carly Neil weaves magic on a loom using a method called ikat dyeing (warp dying). Woolen fibers are dyed while on the loom leaving a brilliant pattern with soft edges that slightly blend creating beautiful dreamy patterns.  Mary Kelly cards and dyes her gathered wool before weaving her vivid patterns for cloth for throws and pillows, jewels that sparkle anywhere they’re laid. Her dyeing technique leaves color fast brilliant yarns from named sheep that beg to be touched.

Mira Scott (Picture This Gallery), Nancy Mitchell and Caren Calafati (Sea Islands Indigo) are more traditional in their approach but unique in execution of their work. Mira uses linocut for a portrait of indigo seed stalks using shadows to illuminate and set off the subject of her prints. Caren works with actual indigo in varying strengths as one would use watercolor for monochromatic landscapes and traditional Lowcountry themes.  Nancy paints with oil on canvas using indigo as subject matter to accent her richly textured and colorful pastoral landscapes – beautiful indigo shrubs and tabby ruins a quintessential sea island theme.

Nancy Mitchell, Courtney Fall Tomchik and Barbara Miller, sculptors all, diverse in application. Nancy sculpts a cast of characters for enchanting dioramas with detailed attention to historic scenes of indigo gathering and dying in the Sea Islands of South Carolina. Courtney uses shimmering indigo glazes for surprisingly unexpected raku clay works collaged together for wall hangings and little bits of things like buttons. Barbara Miller makes use of indigo colored jewels, indigo dyed freshwater pearls and the like, knitted on stainless steel wire and sculpted to fabricate the most gorgeous collar necklaces.

A book installation created by both artists will be the centerpiece of the exhibit combining their styles and “Inner Voices”.

The book titled “ Inner Voices” 4’ x 2.5’ x 12’ long, made in an accordion fold.

“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.” – John Muir

Mary Leto uses plants and natural fibers in the construction of her work. Mira Scott uses remembered flora from her youth and surrounding local vegetation for inspiration while using geometric grids and repetitive patterns to anchor her compositions while working from memory and internal images. She also uses blocks of color to express the emotions that compliment her patterns.

Mary C. Leto is a conceptual artist specializing in hand made paper and books. Many of her pieces are based on the cycle of the seasons and some of her papers are made completely from gathered local plants. The plant itself compliments and adds a layer of energy to each piece. For example the paper for “Inner Voices” incorporates sea grass (spartina) gathered on Hilton Head beaches made to support Mira’s unique visions of the Lowcountry. Mary feels that the written word or illustration or painting is enhanced by the use of specially created custom papers. In holding a hand made book Mary feels that you are holding a living thing in a small sculpture that contains thoughts, dreams and imagination.

Mira says “All things are connected and my paintings are a reflection of the associations and memories of my childhood in the Canadian north, discovering the magic of the natural world and how that impacted my adult life as an artist. All my paintings are 20”x32” the size corresponding to the ‘Golden Rectangle’ used by Classical and Renaissance artists as a symbol of perfection.” Mira’s work is influenced by the expressionist style of Gauguin known as Synthetism which emphasizes two dimensional flat patterns. The influence of M. C. Esher, graphic artist, is clearly visible in Mira’s work as well.
