I was able to take advantage of an impromptu trip to Greenville South Carolina.I was attracted to the wonderful natural and man made gardens of Falls Park on the Reedy. When we pulled into the Hyatt I saw the Art Systems van from near my home in Florida, where I buy art supplies. There was an art educators convention, I kept hoping to somehow get one of their goodie bags. I visited Christopher Park Gallery who was listed in Southern Living, Liz Daly Designs, the Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville, and several others. Although only two floors were open at the Greenville County Museum viewing the exhibits amplified thoughts that have already been on many American's minds. Bruce Davidson: Time of Change—Photographs from the Civil Rights Movement, documents an era dating from before and during my early childhood. Some images made a knot in my stomach. I thought the curator had a sense of humor in the placement of the Jasper Johns and Andrew Wyeth pieces as he made a thematic comparison; a target by Johns next to a Wyeth moose. As an art collector I spied some works by folk artists, emerging artists and professionals to place on my list. The gallery that I would like to feature my work is not in the downtown area, and hopefully we will talk more about that in the future. Yes I plan to return, I like it there! I was photographed while working on some quick oil pastels in my moleskin book.
