Deane King's Work On Display This Week

Deane King, a member of the Anderson Artists Guild, will be part of an exhibition by a group of oil painters called The Painterly Ladies on Thursday, April 26, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in Greenville.

Three Members Featured in Belton Exhibit

Three Anderson Artists Guild members have seven pieces in the “Beyond Skin” exhibit currently on display at the Belton Center for the Arts. The show features work by traditional artists inspired by tattoos, as well as traditional art created by tattoo artists. Sue West’s pieces are Workshop Model (watercolor on rice paper), Solitude (mixed media), and Mama’s Boys (mixed media). All are based on models from life drawing classes. The tattoos were added to two of the pieces, but Workshop Model was a bit of divine providence.
