For Meyer Vogl Gallery’s group exhibition “Love Story,” five artists — Anne Blair Brown, Diane Eugster, Kathleen Jones, Laurie Meyer, and Carlos San Millán, have each created a series of paintings that pay homage to one subject they keep coming back to, something that lights a little fire inside every time they paint it: their own personal love story.
“It’s been a year of loss and heartache and anger, but at the same time, it’s been a year of renewed devotion to the things that matter most to us,” said Meyer Vogl Gallery director and co-owner Katie Geer. “With Love Story, we wanted to — simply enough — put some love out into the world. Each artist was asked to share their own personal ‘love story’ from the studio.”
Laurie Meyer’s subject of choice?
“My love story is with the organic and natural landscape of the Lowcountry of South Carolina,” she said. “I find it most beautiful when backlit by the sunrise. Spanish Moss just glows and warm light wraps around the oaks and cedars. I look at it both abstractly and literally to create a variety of interpretations.”
For Eugster, it’s the country girl (right).
“She is the very embodiment of hard work, self-sufficiency, and honesty,” she said.
Kathleen Jones has chosen the vessel, explaining that she “keeps coming back to them because I love not only exploring vessels as still life objects, but as containers for myself in any given moment.”
Brown is focusing on “awnings and umbrellas,” while San Millán pays homage to his studio in Madrid, Spain.
An all-day pop-in opening celebration will be held on Friday, June 4th, from 10 am to 5 pm, and the show runs until June 25th.
