Stop by The Grand Bohemian Gallery at 55 Wentworth Street for their exhibit “Ethereal Aura" featuring three emerging female artists: Emily Farish, Page Morris, and Flo Ulrich.
Farish is an arist living in San Franscico whose paintings and drawings are currently being sought after by well known tech leaders, sports figures, and prominent designers. A native of Oxford, Mississippi, Farish is known for depicting simple objects as her subjects, yet with an intricate and fascinating approach. The zen-like sensibility of each drawing prevails not only in the detailed renderings of items such as a day-old flower, but in the carefully recorded tape, staples, scratch marks and imperfections of the object mounted to her studio wall.
Originally from Bethesda, Maryland and currently residing in Columbia, South Carolina, Morris is a colorist and is an enthusiast of impasto technique. Morris, who considers herself a “collector of papers” will often times use these documents and found objects when building and sculptuing her canvases.
Born in San Antonio, Texas, Ulrich studied art as a child at local art museums. Trained as an oil painter, Ulrich is a founding member of Plein Air Austin and was accepted into Oil Painters of America and American Women Artists. In 2006, Ulrich temporarily set aside her brushesn and began working in glass as a way to describe imagery less literally than in her painting and quickly garnered national attention. She has been awarded residencies at Pilchuck Glass School in Stanwood, Washington twice and at Northlands Creative Glass in Lyster, Scotland.
Now, working in both mediums, she has moved to Charleston to take advantage of its beautiful light, airy marsh vistas, ocean horizons, and historically significant communities. She is engaging in a fresh dialogue that is inspiring each work to push further in expressiveness.
