"Set Me Free, Why Don't You Babe?" by the Supremes (oil  10 x 8) by Judith Perry

Perry says, “Art making requires passion.  It's like dancing.  It's something you feel and have to express.  Having been raised in the staid southwest corner of the state of Washington, my life was isolated from the broader world.  As a teen, I first heard the music of Motown…soul music.  Soul music was an obvious display of passion and it expressed in word and sound what I felt about visual art.  As I developed formally as an artist at the School of the Art Institute in Chicago, the emphasis was on figure drawing.  To me the human form is the ultimate landscape.  It carries undulating curves, sharp forms, and multiple colors. “

Indigo Fine Art Gallery will host a reception for Judith Perry on Friday, November 4 (5-8pm).  Visitors to the show will witness the passion of soul music merged with the visual form.  The titles of Perry’s new pieces reflect the moods of this expressive music.

Wonderful home for our paintings!

When the sunset glows through the window on the right, this painting lights up the dining room!

"Charleston Bride" (oil) by Paula Lonneman
Perfect combination of elegance and "casual" - this painting completes the composition near the piano.

Two more of Paula Lonneman's oil paintings add a personal touch to the  bar area in the Smiths' Charleston home.

Paula Lonneman's Opening Reception

We celebrated Paula's latest collection of oil paintings on July1!  Her show was called "Some Like It Hot"..and it WAS that night!

For those of you that didn't know this, Paula had just completed painting her series when she fell and broke what we thought was just one arm.  Turns out it was both arms (in the same place at both elbows)!  By the night of her party, her doctor released her to remove one of the casts and the other one was in a sling.  It made shaking hands with collectors a bit hard to do, but her infectious smile made everyone feel glad they came.  Here are pictures from her big event!

Strawberries & cheeses

The weather was gorgeous...the crowds came out!  All wanted a peek at Helen Beacham's newest collection of watercolors in a series entitled "The Essence of Vapor".  The rest of the gallery artists were a hit as well.  The champagne flowed, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect evening!  We're most grateful for everyone's terrific support!

Beacham Show is hung!

We've started  preparations for this Saturday's champagne reception for Helen K. Beacham's latest collection of watercolors (April 30, 5-8pm).  It's amazing how something as simple as listening to a classic story on tape can influence an artist's painting mood and style.  Helen Beacham listed to "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck, and the results are magical.

Lowcountry landscapes feel Oriental in style...Charleston architecture floats in front of our dance in the foggy atmosphere.  The show is entitled "The Essence of Vapor" and will hang through the month of May.
