This December, Carolina Galleries presents an exhibit of Margaret Peery’s newest watercolors titled Views of Charleston. The opening reception is on December 4th, from 5 to 8 p.m. The most recent series features the rooftops and skyline of Charleston from some of the city’s most private homes. Midge has been welcomed into the homes of Charlestonians to paint the view from their rooftops and verandas, sharing with her audience a sight that very few are privileged to see.
Margaret Peery was born in Jackson, North Carolina in 1941. In the 50’s she became a boarding student at Ashley Hall, in Charleston, South Carolina where she studied art with Edith de May Smith. She graduated from Hollins College and earned a MA in mathematics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Inspired by the beauty of the Lowcountry, Peery started painting in 1981. Initially she participated in workshops with many artists including Janet Walsh, Frank Webb, Miles Batt, and West Fraser. Using information learned in these classes, she developed her own style involving layering washes. Peery loves color and enjoys painting atmosphere. Her pieces often have “big” skies anchored by small strips of land.
Peery is a signature member of the Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina, and Southern Watercolor Societies. She has recently had paintings accepted in the Allied Artists of America 94th Juried Exhibition, the Georgia Watercolor Society 29th National Exhibition, The Southern Watercolor Society 31st Annual Exhibition, and the Louisiana Watercolor Society 38th International Exhibition.
Her work can be found in the collections of the Bank of America, Carolina First, Federal Reserve Bank, Roper Hospital, the Gibbes Museum of Art and many private collections.
