Martin Gallery located in Charleston, SC, is pleased to announce THIRTEEN: an exhibition of new works by artist LEO E. OSBORNE. The exhibit will open with a reception on Friday, February 13, 2009, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. Leo continues to investigate many mediums and potentialities in art. A master sculptor and painter, he refuses to get locked into a niche and play the same tune over and over. He has always been a sort of rebel. His philosophy is that ART transcends all borders and boundaries.
“As caretakers of this planet, we must (in all hospitality and with consciousness) leave this life having given back something of beauty. Like so many artists prior, we are storytellers of our time. Painting and sculpture are rhythm, musical form, mood, feeling, the jazz and the energy within. Release that from wood or with paint and the story unfolds.”
THIRTEEN will be a unique opportunity to meet artist Leo E. Osborne in person, and to share in an evening of fine art and fine company. Leo will be bringing THIRTEEN original acrylic/24k gold leaf paintings, created specifically for this special evening. He is also creating a new bronze sculpture that will be cast in a very limited edition of THIRTEEN. Finally, you will not want to miss the unveiling of a never before seen original wood burl sculpture. The gallery is located at 18 Broad Street in Charleston, SC.
