In 2010, internationally renowned artist Mary Whyte set out on a mission to paint fifty large-scale watercolor portraits of what it means to be an American veteran today. Over seven years in the making, We The People: Portraits of Veterans in America, took her across the United States. On that journey, she met men and women of all ages and from all walks of life, and had the opportunity to paint some of our country’s truest patriots. Join us to hear more about her experience and her inspiration for the exhibit.
We The People: Portraits of Veterans in America will launch October 25, 2019 at the City Gallery in Charleston, South Carolina and run until December 22. Click here to purchase tickets. The cost is $20 for members, $25 for non-members, and $10 for student or faculty with valid ID.
