Freshfields Village will be holding its annual Art & Wine Walk on Friday, February 17th from 4:00 to 7:00 pm. Residents and visitors are invited to watch live art demonstrations, view works from local and visiting artists, and enjoy live jazz music and tastes of wine in participating stores.
Participating stores include:
Derma Medical Aesthetics who will feature paintings from local artists Sally Reynolds and Shar Duffy.
J.McLaughlin Men’s will feature a display of photographs from local artist Ron Chamberlain.
J.McLaughlin Women’s will host local Seabrook Island artist Bob Lefevre.
Scout & Molly’s will host Kiawah Island artist Gretchen Prater.
Village Optical will feature a collection of art work from Seabrook Island artist Colleen Wiessman.
Leggiadro will feature artwork from Low Country artist, Carla Johannesmeyer, whose oil paintings are reminiscent of post-impressionists but border on expressionism. Her large confident brush strokes invoke a lyrical quality to her landscape, architectural and figurative narratives. She has a style uniquely her own. Her award winning work can be viewed online, at Courtyard Art Gallery downtown Charleston or by appointment at her studio.
Visit Lilly Pulitzer to meet local artist Bri Catarino whose work will be on display.
Peyton William Jewelry will feature artwork by Gina Brown along with wine and nibbles.
Roberta Roller Rabbit will host local artist Jamie Clemmons, the owner of Clemmons Tree Care that specializes in tree removal. Rather than letting the trees that are cut down end up in a landfill, Jamie repurposes the wood into furniture. By reusing the wood from ancient Lowcounrty trees, Jamie is helping preserve their history. Many of Jamie’s renewable furniture pieces incorporate a live edge design.
The Resort Shop is thrilled to host local artist Kate Waddell! Born and raised in Columbus, Georgia, but a resident of Charleston since college, Kate has developed a beautiful and lively style of painting. Whether she is painting local Charleston scenes, the canals of Italy, the human form, or a plate of breakfast food, Kate’s use of line and color draw the human eye to detect shapes and images. With a wide assortment of paintings as well as coffee mugs, stationary, and prints to choose from, her energetic and whimsical aesthetic is a cheerful addition to any room.
Tommy Bahama will host visiting artist Alice Pruitt along with a collection of original paintings and prints.
Wonder Works to meet local author Bill Guiffre who will be signing copies of his books.
