Visit Reinert Fine Art to see new works by Millie Gosch, Alana Knuff, Dr. Jim Spann, and Rick Reinert. Pictured here is Alana Knuff's work "Bohicket Dock."
As young as five, Alana drew the world around her. With a desire to win a new bicycle, she entered a national art contest at the age of nine. She rendered the subject, with colored pencils, winning second prize to the first place oil.
Freshman year of college, she excelled in life drawing and then graduated with a degree in mathematics in 1966. Capital Project Management was her career. In 2007, Alana joined a group of Plein Air artists in Ravello, Italy and began to paint in oil. Since retirement in 2008, her focus has been her artwork.
She is well known for her portraits and maritime paintings. Primarily self-taught, Alana’s artwork displays remarkable craftsmanship with the compositions intentionally leading the viewer. She develops harmony with a wide range of values and intensities using limited palettes. Color harmony with lost and found edges strengthens her style of romantic realism.

Visit the Saul Alexander Gallery in the Charleston County Public Library this November to see Ron Anton Rocz's Photography Exhibition "Off-Beat and Off the Beaten Path!: Images of Charleston Vernacular, Folk, Graffiti, and Hip Hop". They will be open from 2-5pm during 2nd Sunday.
Artist Statement on the Exhibition:
This exhibit was originally conceived a year ago to give photo documentation and testimony to the variety of African-American artistic “local color” forms of folk art and colloquial business sign calligraphy on the Charleston peninsula. Through the year, however, I noticed how rapidly it was disappearing, due primarily to gentrification, and I regretted that I had not followed my earlier impulses over the years to collect and document its existence on the streets of Charleston. I dashed about to photograph what still existed and searched my files for earlier examples.
In this same year, however, two phenomena occurred simultaneously and unexpectedly: the discovery of many new graffiti and folk murals on the rear sides of local businesses, and the developing talent of one young man friend’s hip-hop dancing. A vision came to me of capturing this young man, my protégée and mentee of nine years, coming from rural John’s Island, doing hip-hop movements in front of these murals. In these images I saw a newer expression of an African-American art form – urban hip-hop.
