art out of "a need to understand and embrace the everyday uncertainty of
living. An avid journaler, writing in the wee hours of the morning about
nothing, something or everything, I still journal but wood, plaster and
canvas have become my paper, with color and form becoming my words."
Friday October 2, Allison Sprock Fine Art will host a fabulous reception featuring the art of Karen Weihs and Sabre Esler.
From 5:30 - 8:30 PM come upstairs to meet these
two creative and special artists and enjoy the comfort and hospitality of
Charleston's most special and unique gallery.
Karen Weihs (left), Colorist of the Carolinas,
lives in the Cashiers, NC mountains but is a Charleston native. "The colors
and spirit of Charleston make me feel alive and energized when arriving home,
and the mountains inspire serenity to live and create." Weihs’ work is
included in the Wolfgang Puck Collection and in the Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas.
Sabre Esler (art at right) is one of Georgia's most
exciting emerging artists. Her works are cutting-edge fresh, yet classically
familiar. The artist, who is greatly influenced by the German expressionists,
knows the importance of line and the energy and spontaneity it brings to a
painting. Esler studied under the Chatovs and her work is
included in many collections, including Bank of Georgia and Wild Dunes Resort.
Don't miss the opportunity to meet these two special
artists plus Allison and, of course, Lucy, her famous yellow lab. A portion of the proceeds of the art sold that
evening will benefit St. Jude's Children's Hospital.
Allison Sprock Fine Art is at 179 1/2 King
Street, part of the King Street Antique District, Lower King Street between
Queen and Market. Park on the street, or in the City Garage at
King and Queen and join us for the most special part of Charleston's Art Walk.

dynamic. Often inspired by film imagery and exotic cultures, she is the

the first to introduce a new fabric and popularize it for wider use.
