For this year’s stroll, The Sylvan Gallery is pleased to welcome the recently opened Eli’s Table for a memorable evening of fine art and delicious food served by one of Charleston’s most well-known chefs-Brett McKee.

Born and raised in Brooklyn and Long Island, New York, Chef McKee’s upbringing inspired the eclectic creativity that

Chef Brett McKee

has formed his legendary culinary career. Growing up, Chef McKee was influenced by his own Irish-Norwegian background, as well as the abundantly diverse cultures found in the melting pot of New York. In 1983, he officially began his career in Manhattan and the Hamptons after graduating first in his class from the New York Restaurant School. In 1989, he ventured south to Charleston, South Carolina, where he introduced his culinary creations to the guests of The Vendue Inn. In 1991, Chef McKee opened Hugo’s on the Isle of Palms prior to showcasing his flair for upscale Italian cuisine at Union Hall. He then opened two namesake restaurants, Brett’s and Brett’s at the Wickliffe House.

Chef McKee thrived on his culinary success while Charleston raved about his personality as much as his restaurants. He left his first, and most significant, footprint on the Charleston restaurant community with the opening of Oak Steakhouse in 2005 where he was executive chef. In 2007, Chef McKee was one of five finalists for Chef Magazine’s “Chef of the Year” and in 2008, the Culinary Legend Award at the Charleston Food & Wine Festival. To add to his growing list of restaurants, McKee launched O-Ku, a high-end Japanese and sushi restaurant on King street in Charleston.

Chef McKee’s culinary skills and commitment to philanthropy positively impacted the Charleston community and the world beyond. He was awarded Charleston Magazine’s “Giving Back: Reader’s Choice Award” in the fall of 2007 and the “Paul Hulsey Philanthropy Award” from the YES Carolina Foundation in 2008. Most recently, Chef McKee partnered with Charleston Hospitality Group as their Corporate Chef and consultant and worked to open Eli’s Table on busy Meeting street.

The Sylvan Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of an exhibit by renowned southern painter Ted Ellis. A reception to honor his new body of work, Spirit of the South, will be held on November 6, 5:30-8:30 pm at 171 King St. Charleston, SC. The collection will be on display at the gallery through the end of the month. Ellis will be painting on location the next morning, November 7, in Washington Park as part of the CFADA Fine Art Annual weekend.

The paintings in this latest collection are inspired by Ellis’ memories of his childhood in New Orleans. With a primitive style that is reminiscent of the Outsider Art movement, Ellis tells the stories of everyday African American life in the Deep South. His heavy brushstroke and frequent use of rich colors reveal the environmental influences of his rural subject matter. Motivated by teaching others about his style of life, Ellis says “I paint subjects that are representative of the many facets of American life as I know it. I like to think of myself as a creative historian. I was put here to record history…all aspects of American culture and heritage. My sole purpose has always been to educate through my art”.

Ellis, who currently resides in Friendswood, Texas, has been recognized as one of the most celebrated artists of the 21st century. Ellis’ private collectors are many and scattered throughout the globe.  His work is also in many corporate collections including Walt Disney Studios, Coca-Cola, Phillip Morris, and Avon.

The Sylvan Gallery is a member of the Charleston Fine Art Dealers Association, which created the Charleston Fine Art Weekend. This years events include opening receptions at participating galleries, a plein air demonstration, and the Annual Charleston Art Auction. More details about the weekends’ events can be found at http://www.cfada.com.
