Mary Whyte at the Greenville County Art Museum

Friday as part of the Newcomers Explorers group Bob and I had the great fortune to go to the Grenville County Art Museum and see the paintings of watercolor artist Mary Whyte.   The exhibit is 50 paintings and is called The Working South. http://www.sc.edu/uscpress/microsites/whyte/index.html

This was our first trip to this museum.  What made it extra special is that the artist was there and she spent about half an hour talking about how she came to do this series and how she met the people she painted.   Her husband did the frames and they are expertly matched to each work of art.  Her explanations added so much to our appreciation and understanding of her work.   She even came and had lunch with us afterward.   Later this month several of the people she painted are coming to see the exhibit.   I can’t imagine what that will be like for them.  A very rewarding morning.
