On Friday, October 1st, we will be hosting two fantastic shows:
"SHINRIN-YOKU,BREATHE IT IN” by Elaine Hruska
Shinrin-Yoku, “forest bathing” or “taking in the forest atmosphere”, started in Japan in the 1980's as a physiological and psychological exercise to counteract stress and tech burnout. It has evolved into a worldwide movement, “Forest Therapy. The very timely show, “SHINRIN-YOKU , BREATHE IT IN ” by pastel artist Elaine Hruska,was created to raise awareness about the health benefits of being surrounded by nature, as well as the need to protect the gift of nature we were given. Hruska creates captivating pastel paintings using color layering techniques made famous by the Impressionists in order to attain vibrancy and brilliance.

“Ins and Outs of Charleston” by Brandon Newton
Strolling through the streets of Charleston at night, one cannot resist enjoying the beauty of its dramatically light historic churches and buildings. Stand in front of a Brandon Newton nocturnal oil painting of Charleston and one can also see and feel that grandeur. Newton was introduced to Charleston after being asked to join an HBO series project being filmed in the city, as a scenic artist. Falling in love with the city, Newton temporarily relocated his family. “ Ins and Outs of Charleston” consists of small and large classic paintings of Charleston.
