News > Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit

Spoleto is almost upon us! As we prepare for the 17 days of theatre, dance, film screenings, literary readings, and fine arts exhibits, we can’t help but be excited to see some favorite Art Mag friends at the Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibition.

Each day of the festival, Marion Square fills with local artists showcasing their work. As you walk around the exhibits, make sure to stop by and say hi to the following folks:

Colleen Wiessman is a local contemporary abstract artist. Her use of collage and layering creates dimensional works that are breathtaking- especially in her landscape paintings. On Friday, June 1, Wiessman will hold a mixed media demonstration inMarion Square at 2:30 pm.

Fred Jamar, born in Belgium, brings a breath of fresh air to the art scene of Charleston. His oil paintings, specifically the Charleston cityscapes, are worth the walk to Marion Square.

Hilarie Lambert’s oil paintings of rainy days in Paris and days at the Carolina beach highlight the beauty in the small, and often forgotten, details of every day life. Lambert will give a pastel demonstration on Wednesday, June 6 at 11 am.

Kevin LePrince is known for his alla prima style, with oil paintings hanging in the Ocean Room at the Sanctuary Hotel on Kiawah. His works capture the feel of life here in the Lowcountry.

KC Collins

KC Collins creates paintings that are both abstract yet true to life. In 2010, she won the Piccolo Spoleto Mayor’s Choice award. Her works will have you rubbing your chin and wondering if you are looking at a painting or a photograph.

Laurie Meyer paints life in the Lowcountry in her signature “brushy” strokes along with rich colors and a palette knife to create a unique, soft style. Meyer will hold an oil painting demonstration on Saturday, June 2, at 11 am.

Rick Reinert’s brilliant use of colors and sunlight transform everyday images into beautiful and mesmerizing works of art. Reinert will give an oil demonstration in Marion Square on Wednesday, June 6 at 2:30 pm.

Tammy Papa refers to herself as an “expressive colorist,” drawn to bright colors and dramatic light. Her impressionist paintings often focus on the beaches of Isle of Palms and other scenes from around Charleston. Papa will hold a pastel demonstration on Saturday, June 2 at 2:30 pm.
