The City of North Charleston’s Cultural Arts Department will host an exhibition of works by local artist Sherrie Nesbitt in the display windows of The Meeting Place now through July 31.
There will be a free reception hosted by the artist on Friday, July 13, from 5 to 7 p.m..
In Beauty of the Lowcountry, Nesbitt presents a collection of landscapes and portraits done in acrylic, pastel, charcoal, and watercolor. Pieces such as “The Dock,” “Going Home,” and “Dock Landing,” depict sites around the artist’s home. Other landscapes present familiar Lowcountry scenes, such as beach sunrises and sunsets. A handful of portraits included in the collection capture the faces of local sweet grass basket weavers.
Nesbitt boasts an eclectic arts background. She received her formal training at the Parson’s School of Design and at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. After completing her education she worked for several years in the fashion industry. All the while, she continued to draw and paint, as well as craft original wire jewelry pieces. She has exhibited in many venues and has participated in a number of juried competitions throughout the Lowcountry. She currently lives in Summerville and is an exhibiting member of the Summerville Artist Guild.
The Meeting Place is located at 1077 East Montague Avenue in the revitalized Olde Village area of North Charleston. Parking is free. Display window exhibits offer visitors a continuous opportunity to view artwork by different artists every other month. Proposals are being accepted and considered on a continuing basis.
