day of Apr. 6, 2009, looking at, and contemplating 421 works
of art representing 223 South Carolina artisans. The vast array
of paintings, drawings, photographs, prints, ceramics, fiber
and other mediums made for the difficult task of selecting works
for, and eliminating works from, the final show. The impressive
final selection of 131 works of art represents 124 individuals
currently creating visual art in this state. About the jury process,
Williams said, "This Thirtieth Annual Juried South Carolina
Artists Exhibition represents an important aspect of Pickens
County Museum of Art and History's objective, to 'tell the stories
of Pickens County and the Carolina Upcountry.' Like our earliest
ancestors who expressed themselves in the visual arts, South
Carolina's artists still express their most important values
through their chosen media. Our artists think deeply about the
world and their place in it." He continued, "the artist
in society has not changed much during the thousands of years
of human history, since the earliest known artists represented
the relationship between human culture and the natural world
in their depictions found on the surfaces of caves and rock outcroppings.
Their works of craft also quickly transcended the realm of pure
functionality and became expressive." To summarize his role
in this endeavor, Williams said, "To see and appreciate
the 'Thirtieth Annual Juried SC Artists Exhibition' is not just
a matter of enjoying its entertainment value. It may be enjoyable,
but it is much more than that. These artists have poured their
hearts and souls into their works of art. As I juried the exhibition,
I was overwhelmed by their collective curiosity and creativity,
their psychological, philosophical, and in some cases, religious
understanding, and their ability to synthesize a complex variety
of thoughts and feelings into a painting, photograph, drawing,
print, basket, or piece of furniture."

- The Society of Bluffton Artists (SoBA)
in Bluffton, SC, announced the winners of its annual competition
held at the SoBA Gallery on Boundary Street in Old Town Bluffton.
The exhibition will be on view through Apr. 18, 2009. The winners
are: Best of Show: "Savannah Cargo" an encaustic
triptych (3-pieces) by Diane Dean; First Place: "Princetta
Praying" a graphite drawing by Ted Jordan; Second Place: "Where
Am I?" a mixed media/collage painting by Lark Smith; and
Third Place: "Marsh in Bloom" an oil painting
by Judy McElynn. Honorable mentions were awarded to: "The
Farm Stand" by Don Nelson in photography; "Window to
the Soul" a mixed media painting by Art Cornell; and "Annie"
a pastel painting by Vickie Bailey Ebbers. Holly McCullough,
Chief Curator, Fine Arts and Exhibitions at Savannah, GA's, Telfair
Museum of Art, who judged this year's show said this year's show
is "further confirmation that our region is blessed with
an abundance of artists working in a wide variety of media and
styles." McCullough was impressed by the diversity
of the exhibition and that diversity is certainly represented
in the various mediums winning awards. The medium represented
in Best of Show winner "Savannah Cargo", Diane Dean's
work, is encaustic, also known as hot wax painting which involves
using heated beeswax to which colored pigments are added. Because
wax is used as the pigment binder, encaustics can be sculpted
to reveal a textured surface. Dean has collaged images of
container ships in the Savannah River under the wax surfaces
in this three-painting composition creating an atmospheric view
of commerce from Savannah's River Street. Encaustic technique
was notably used in the Egyptian mummy portraits between 100-300
AD, and in other early icons. Encaustic painting was also a technique
of ancient Greek shipbuilders, who used hot wax to fill the cracks
in their ships. Soon pigment (color) was added and this led to
painting on the surface of the waxed hull: an art form was born. Though
Dean's paintings likely won't embellish any crypts or ships in
the near future, visitors to the SoBA Gallery can enjoy this
ancient art form in the comfort of a stylish, air conditioned
exhibition space. Ted Jordan's drawing, "Princetta's Prayer",
is a fine example of this talented artist's diverse abilities. It
is a simple, yet complex image depicting innocence and hope. "Where
Am I?", Lark Smith's worldly, complex mixed media/collage
is filled with inviting, surreal and ethereal images. Her use
of lines, color and texture enhance the interest and bode the
title's question. Oil painter Judy McElynn's "Marsh in Bloom"
is rich and soothing. She has captured the atmosphere of
a Lowcountry marsh and delivered a gem all will enjoy. Along
with the winners and honorable mentioned artists' work, over
90 paintings and sculpture complete the exhibit and the public
is invited to vote for their favorite artwork. The gallery is
located on Boundary Street in old Bluffton. For further
info call the gallery at 843/757-6586 or visit (www.sobagalleries.com).
