Robert Lange Studios | Many Long Walks
Many Long Walks, currently on display at Robert Lange Studios, features the work of landscape painters Megan Aline (who is also one of the gallery’s owners, along with her husband, Robert Lange) and Brett Sheifflee. Both Aline and Sheifflee are known for their ability to create quiet, contemplative landscape scenes. Naturally, then, both artists felt a connection to the show’s title, Many Long Walks. “What makes this body of work truly special for me is knowing that Megan’s little painted worlds and my own will come together on the same walls to be something new, to be a kind of conversation we can’t have just on our own. I think it’s going to be a show where people want to slow down, observe, remember and perhaps plan their next trip out of the daily grind,” says Sheifflee.

Through July 26. Free to attend. Robert Lange Studios, 2 Queen St. Downtown. robertlangestudios.com

During this tour Borick will discuss the key figures involved in the winning of independence in this state, and how the conflict affected Charleston.
