Columbia native and resident Gilkerson is a prominent presence in the art scene of South Carolina’s Midlands. She is painter with a long and full exhibition history. She also teaches art at Columbia College, and is an art critic and curator. Gilkerson holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in art from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. This will be her first exhibition of monotypes, which she produced at Greenville’s King Snake Press in cooperation with Master Printer Garrett.
Garrett, a native and resident of Greenville, S.C., is both as a painter and printer among the region’s more prominent artists. He has completed extensive studies in printmaking, including at the San Francisco Art Institute and with Tamarind Master Printer Cappy Kuhn.
Since Garrett launched King Snake Press in 1998, the medium has spread like a happy virus through Upstate South Carolina and beyond. Artists as different as Edward Rice, Carl Blair and Katie Walker have made prints at Garrett’s press. In 2001, the Greenville County (S.C.) Museum of Art mounted an exhibition of monotypes produced by 25 artists with Garrett at his press.

DON ZURLO: From Santa Fe to Orlando, June 15-20

Most of the paintings in this exhibit are of images abstracted from a series of digital photographs taken at Santa Fe, New Mexico and Epcot in Orlando, Florida. The theme of each painting begins with the sense of place from the photo, and then evolves into a composition of abstract forms in a dream-like landscape. Colors and shapes are adjusted to create a scene that relates to the physical world, but at the same time, appears to exist in some mystical place in another dimension.

The show opens June 15th and closes June 20th. Hours are from 1 pm to 6 pm, and by appointment. There will be a reception Thursday, June 15th from 6 to 9 pm. All sales are through City Art. For additional information, call Don Zurlo, Vista Studios #11, 803-960-2087, or Wendy Wells, City Art at 803-252-3613.
