There is no shortage of art galleries in downtown Charleston. Even if you are not in the market for new art, it is always a treat to wander in the galleries and check out what they have. You will find very talented local -and not so local- works scattered along the walls, and a friendly face to greet you happy that you came in to share their passion. I recently had the pleasure of meeting one of these amazing artists.
Cindy Walton recently celebrated her opening of “Letters to the Land and Sea” during the Charleston Gallery Association’s March ArtWalk at the Ellis-Nicholson Gallery on Broad Street. Cindy’s work is, not only beautiful, but unique as well given that she uses a medium that is not typically seen among the art in Charleston. She uses cold wax on wood panels to create her art. Heavily inspired by landscapes, Cindy’s abstract work each creates a sense of connection with the elements.
Asheville, North Carolina is where Cindy calls home. You can find her working on her craft at Wedge Studio. She also teaches throughout the year in various cities across the nation. Currently her works are in five formal galleries. Cindy’s exhibit at the Ellis-Nicholson Gallery runs through March 30th. Be sure to stop in and see “Letters to the Land and Sea”.
