Ten-Inch Paintings to Celebrate 10 Years
February 6 – 26 2015
Opening Reception: February 6, 5:00-8:00 PM (free to the public)
This February Robert Lange Studios (RLS) in Charleston, SC will celebrate its 10th anniversary with a group show featuring 24 RLS artists of past and present. Each artist will create multiple 10-by-10 inch works exemplifying their specific style, genre and subject matter. The exhibition will hang through February 2015 with ten-percent of the proceeds going to the John C. Doyle scholarship fund. A reception, featuring music, wine, and hors d’oeuvres will take place on February 6 from 5-8PM and is open to the public.
When considering how to celebrate the milestone of being open for a decade, RLS decided that an exhibition highlighting the wide diversity of work that has been shown over the years would be best. This show will be the 92nd exhibit for the gallery.
“In looking back over the past ten years, the only word that comes to mind is blessed,” says Robert Lange. “In ten years we have witnessed many of our artists’ lives transform. Some had just graduated college when we picked them up, most never having exhibited their work, and now they grace the covers of national magazines, receive awards and accolades and have exhibited in museums across the country.”
Veteran RLS artist Ali Cavanaugh, who recently painted the cover for TIME Magazine’s person of the year finalist, has created a new painting for the show. Karen Ann Myers’ who currently has a traveling museum show will be creating at least one new work. Another veteran to RLS, who has been voted best visual artist in Charleston for four years, Nathan Durfee has shown at the gallery since his beginning as an artist. For the show he’s created a series of three introspective dogs in cardinal costumes. “This show was a great opportunity to revisit one of most beloved characters: Bartholomeux, the dog-in-disguise. By focusing on his face and mask he becomes a vehicle for me to explore color and pattern in his costume. His closed eyes and quiet expression complete the narrative: dreams of what his costume could be and could have been.”
Lange when looking back said, “When we were 22-years old we decided to open a gallery. We actually sold our DVD collection to help cover the first month’s rent. Our goal was to promote emerging and mid-career artists with a focus on artistic and personal integrity. We could have never imagined this is where we would be today.”
