On September 2, 2016, Lowcountry Artists Gallery will host an art show featuring works by mother-daughter duo Stephanie Hamlet and Kellie Jacobs. Stephanie Hamlet will feature her new works using inks and acrylics, and textured collages.
Through experimentation, Hamlet has found a path to express herself in a more loose, flowing medium and discovered her passion in mixed media with the use of bold, vibrant colors. “It’s exciting to have this exhibit together,” said Jacobs about the exhibit she and her mother, Stephanie Hamlet, are having. Jacobs described growing up in a household where creativity was always encouraged and art was present.
Kellie Jacobs, pastel artist, will feature her new softly textured pastel paintings focusing primarily on Lowcountry marshes and beaches. South Carolina’s rich, natural beauty provides her with an endless supply of subject matter. In her new series, Jacobs uses watercolor underpaintings or washes with denatured alcohol to provide a fascinating painterly appearance to her work. Jacobs visually describes the scene, but allows the viewer to complete the landscape by adding his or her own personal interpretive experiences or memories.
The exhibition will be on view at the Lowcountry Artists Gallery September 1st – 30th, 2016. A reception will be held on September 2, 2016 from 5-8pm with light refreshments provided.
