Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art located at 58 Broad Street in downtown Charleston t is pleased to highlight new incoming works from their New England artists, Stapleton Kearns and Scott Moore. Both artists traveled to Charleston to spend the majority of December capturing the crisp Lowcountry winter. Both artists’ brilliant color and detail showcases the natural beauty of the area, spanning from McClellanville to Kiawah Island.
The gallery will proudly receive at least two-dozen new paintings with a show opening and reception during the January Gallery Row art walk on Broad Street, Friday, January 7th from 5-8pm.
Stapleton Kearns lives in New Hampshire and paints predominantly plein-air style, on-site in the elements no matter the harsh temperatures or dismal weather. He tells people, “If I’m awake, then I’m painting!” He also taught a 3-day workshop as part of his most recent stay in the area. He spares nothing in detail or time it takes to complete a perfect painting.
Scott Moore is best known for his unique architectural renderings. His downtown Charleston scenes are eye-catching, with vibrant rooftops scenes that lend extraordinary views of downtown, from the harbor and its striking Ravenel Bridge to familiar streets like Broad, Tradd and Cumberland. He also has a knack for capturing countryside charm, painting the cottages and dirt roads of the outlying areas around town. Scott hails from Maine and has been professionally painting for over three decades.
