For this year’s Palette and Palate Stroll, Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art will feature Dutch works by Simon Balyon, Hennie de Korte, Frans Van der Wal, Frits Goosen, Niek Van der Plas, Willem Heytman and Johannes Eerdmans in a show titled “A Dutch Medley.”  The show has a variety of subject matter from still life and maritime scenes to landscapes from around the world. Simon Balyon has primarily chosen to focus his new works on the Charleston historic district. His stunning, old world depictions of downtown locales transport the viewer to a simpler time while capturing the essence and charm that encapsulates Charleston. The exhibit runs through August 30th.

The gallery is pleased to be joined for the first time by the best restaurant east of the Cooper – Langdon’s. Owned and operated by the Owens Dinning Group, Langdon`s  is a classic fine dining restaurant that fuses Lowcountry and global flavors and warm hospitality in a refined, contemporary setting. As Mt. Pleasant’s only AAA Four Diamond restaurant, the greatest emphasis is on execution, attention to detail, and consistency in creating top-notch food. Under the leadership of Chef/Owner Patrick Owens, Langdon’s continues to be a neighborhood favorite since opening in 2003.Langdons

“The Night is Ours” by Jeff Jamison , 40×30 oil on canvas

Ella Walton Richardson Fine Art welcomes all-star artist Jeff Jamison in June as he returns to Charleston with a new body of metropolitan-inspired works for his show, “City Life.” Please join the artist for the opening reception on Friday, June 1st from 5-8pm.”

“News Stand Light” by Jeff Jamison, o/c 24×30

Jamison’s romantic urban landscapes and bustling restaurant scenes have captured collectors across the country. A Tennessee native, Jamison has consistently been a top-selling artist for the past few years and has continued to provide new and interesting subject matter that continues to make clients swoon. He has a knack for capturing the feeling of a lively city square, or charming cafe during the bustle of the lunch rush.

Through his canvases, Jamison is able to reach out to viewers and create a sense of familiarity and fond recollection. His work has enough detail to feel like “you’ve been there,” but is also wonderfully vague enough so the viewer’s imagination or memories can fill in the blanks.

“My goal is to find common ground with the viewer through each piece. I truly believe that the observer can feel the energy put into a painting,” says Jamison.

While the subjects of his paintings are often influenced by major hubs like New York and Paris, they are almost always created from memory rather than a photograph. Jamison’s work has garnered immeasurable recognition and has been highlighted in numerous publications, including an impressive feature in the February 2011 Nashville Arts Magazine.

The gallery is located at 58 Broad Street in downtown Charleston.
