Piccolo Spoleto Art Exhibit and SpoletoTea Room

Information on newer 2008 Spoleto and Piccolo Spoleto Events may be found by clicking the art categories "Piccolo Spoleto Festival art" and "Spoleto Festival USA" in the sidebar to the right of this page. Thought you might be interested.

Some of the 2007 show artists await the judge's decision at the Piccolo Spoleto Art Exhibition in Marion Square on opening day this afternoon.

The award winners are congratulated after the awards presentation by Mayor Joe Riley and the exhibition staff members this afternoon.
Pictured is a high school art classmate of mine who won 2en place honors, Anne Hightower Patterson. Way to go, Anne. Mrs. Bolton is smiling down on you.

Artist Bonnie Stabler won a Merit Award.

Artist Floyd Gordon was awarded an Honorable Mention for his acrylic painting on paper "Magnolia Gardens". Mr. Gordon has been juried into the last 27 consecutive Piccolo Festival Art Exhibitions.

Rick Reinert won an award of merit for his oil painting, "Doyle Gallery, Broad Street". Rick's a member of COPA. I've had a chance to see him paint en plein air.

Michel McNinch won an honorable mention with her oil painting "Low Tide".

I hope the weather stays as great as it was today- cool, sunny with a light breeze. Perfect weather to enjoy an outdoor Arts Festival. If you can make it to Charleston in the next seventeen days, this is one event you'll want to see.

I'm showing two large oil paintings across the street in an exhibit at St. Matthew's Lutheran Church. The Charleston Artist Guild is exhibiting artwork as part of St. Matthew's Spoleto Tea Room and Art Exhibition thru June 3ed.

Please come by to see the artwork and enjoy afternoon tea. St. Matthew's Church is across from Marion Square at 403 King Street. Tea, other drinks, finger sandwich plates, and homemade desserts will be served from 1pm-5pm. May 25-June 3.
