Lake City, South Carolina, is proving that we look to more than football, hamburgers, and television for gratification. It took grunt work and dollars to showcase more than 400 pieces of art, including paintings, installation art, photographs, mixed media, sculpture and digital media. Every work or art was skillfully displayed.
At the Welcome Center, I registered to vote on the art and cast 15 votes. Here’s a painting I consider a winner. It's huge, covered an entire wall/corner of the ROB (formerly a tobacco manufacturing building):
|Robert Keith's Clifton & Drake|
|Alice Ratterree's 24 Hours|
|Emily Clanton explains the unusual mushroom paint she used|
|Vera Tracy's Just One Gun (shown at the ROB)|
|George Blakely's Re-inventing the Landscape|
|My sister Nila stands between Cinderella and carriage|
