A patriotic show to make the election season more lovely.
September - October 2012 in the gallery @ ARTworks in Beaufort Town Center
Original paintings and giclees of prized American images: monuments, fireworks, one President and two First Ladies, imbued with the spirit of '76, wrapped in the cotton candy of American Impressionism. Sponsored by First Citizen Bank. Meet the fantastic artist at the opening reception on Friday, September 7, 6 to 8pm. Candace Lovely is a Hilton Head based artist. Her most recent accolade is the 2012 Prestigious American Women in the Arts Recognition Award of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Her unique and powerful but non-confrontational approach to painting has captured on canvas a White House Portrait of First Lady Barbara Bush, Arlington Street Showers, The Flag depicted as a Good and Plenty hug, and President Obama in a pick up game of basketball with friends. Her palette is as vibrant as her eye for the brilliant.
