Critics' Picks: The best visual arts events in town this week

The best First Friday art shows in town


Lowcountry Artists Gallery | Nature With a Twist
Head to Lowcountry Artists Gallery to check out works from Karen Silvestro in featured show, Nature With a Twist, throughout the month of May. Silvestro has moved away from her usual charcoals (and the world of black and white) and is now working with more colors, where she has found “organic interaction with nature that has fresh affinity and a surreal touch.”

Fri. May 3, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Lowcountry Artists Gallery, 148 East Bay St. Downtown.

Meyer Vogl Gallery | Inside Voices
Think of the work in Meyer Vogl Gallery’s upcoming group exhibition Inside Voices as the anti-landscape. Though oftentimes quiet and serene, the inside of a place can also be buzzing with energy, with mixed patterns strewn across the room, sun bursting in through open windows, and, of course, people congregating, laughing, crying, and living their lives.

Fri. May 3, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Meyer Vogl, 122 Meeting St. Downtown.

Dog and Horse Fine Art | Spreading Lowcountry Love
P-Nut the Legendary Lowcountry Poet brings his work to Dog and Horse Fine Art this May. In Spreading Lowcountry Love P-Nut bridges poetry and painting, local flavor and outsider influence, as well as upper class and working class. His internationally collected napkin poetry will also be on display.

Fri. May 3, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Dog & Horse Fine Art, 102 Church St. Downtown.
Robert Lange Studios | The Perfectionists
Robert Lange Studios’ latest exhibition, The Perfectionists, features the work of 20 world renowned painters, each one creating extremely detailed works. Participating artists include Robert Lange, Natallie Featherston, Christopher Stott, Susan Harrell, Karen Ann Meyers, Kerry Simmons, George Ayers, and more. “There seems to be a common thread among realists, that is, they never think a painting is ever done,” says Robert Lange.

Fri. May 3, 5-8 p.m. Free to attend. Robert Lange Studios, 2 Queen St. Downtown.
