Camden ART will open its fall show in the Bassett Gallery at the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County on Thursday with a reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. before the opening night of “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.”  The Camden ART exhibit will be on display in the Bassett Gallery until Jan. 16, 2015.

The juried exhibition will include works of art in a variety of styles and media, including watercolor; oil; acrylic; charcoal; pen and ink; and mixed media. Select works will be available for purchase just in time for the holidays. The Camden ART fall show will be judged by Michael Story, whose exhibition opened the Bassett Gallery’s season in September. 

“Camden ART’s Fall Show is a wonderful exhibit that showcases the many talents of artists in our community,” said Kristin Cobb, FAC executive director. “We are always delighted to feature their work in the Bassett Gallery.”

Born in Beloit, Wis., Story was encouraged to draw in his childhood by his grandfather, Ken Osgood, who was a professional artist.

Story has studied pastel and oil painting with internationally-known artist Daniel Greene. His recent travels to the Southwestern United States and Canada have uncovered a new artistic direction for Story with regards to his landscapes.

Today, Story is an award-winning artist who regularly teaches pastel and oil painting, gives guest lectures and juries art shows.

The first, second and third place winners, along with the audience favorite will be featured in the spring show scheduled for May 2015 in the Bassett Gallery.

Camden ART is a group of local artists, both professional and amateur, who meet the first Monday of each month at the FAC and present two annual exhibits in the FAC’s Bassett Gallery.  Camden ART welcomes anyone interested in visual arts to join.  Membership will provide opportunities for artists to showcase their work, hear from speakers and demonstrators who can share their expertise and meet other artists in the community.
