Charleston got some love in the March issue of Oxford American. The “Visual South Issue” includes a big feature on 100 new “superstars of Southern art” with nods to local artists Ben Williams, Karen Ann Myers, Leslie Burns, Jonathan Yoerger, and Reynier Llanes. Seventy-six-year-old Hilton Head artist Aldwyth, who was featured in a 2009 exhibit at the Halsey, is also listed.
The artists were selected by a crew of art insiders, including curators, gallery owners, critics, and other artists; in Charleston, those included painter Jonathan Green, the Halsey’s Mark Sloan, and the Gibbes’ Pam Wall. See more at oxfordamerican.org, or pick up a copy to see the full list.
