We are excited to welcome South Carolina Abstract Artist, Penny Beesley, to the gallery!
Penny Beesley was raised in an art loving family and her weekends were often spent at her father’s elbow in his studio. Art was a focal point during high school followed by Eastern Michigan University, attaining a BFA in ceramics and painting. Inspiration and motivation continue to come from nature’s surrounding stimulus of color, form and light, a background presence of music, man-made or natural, and the emotions brought on by them.
Color, shapes, negative space definition and the motion of abstract expressionism come from an inner spot that flows and speaks for her. She also finds a mix of media opens more opportunities for chance chemistry. The argument inside the skin has always been to be abstract and spontaneous, to follow the push-pull. Collage media and mono print papers bring chance juxtaposition and build up texture. Color and motion are essential elements. The exploration of techniques is a continuing learning experience.
In October, Penny was our featured exhibiting artist during the Historic Bluffton Arts and Seafood Festival!
