Meyer Vogl Gallery |Second Course
Meyer Vogl Gallery co-owner Laurie Meyer is showing her own exhibit, Second Course, throughout May. The pieces highlight Charleston restaurants and kitchens and other culinary memories. In a statement about the show, Meyer says, "By selecting a kitchen scene for a painting, I am assured a figurative piece full of gesture and energy. The glow of the warm lights and the neutrals of the stainless steel offer incredible colors as well. I love a traditional chef in white with warm lights, surrounded by the coolness of the restaurant kitchen interiors."

Miller Gallery | Seriously. Painter, Designer.
Painter Charlotte Filbert and designer Benjamin Rollins Caldwell are one helluva an artistic couple. Filbert has exhibited in New York's prestigious Opera Gallery and Caldwell earned international acclaim in 2013 when Lady Gaga used his "Binary Chair" as part of her marketing efforts for the Artpop album tour. Check out old and new works from both Filbert and Caldwell at the Miller Gallery; Filbert's paintings reflect the "colors, layers, and complexities of her emotions," and Caldwell's work is comprised of pieces he finds from antique stores, abandoned warehouses, and salvage yards. "Sometimes the objects I discover simply inspire the overall design idea and other times the objects actually become the raw material for the pieces," says Caldwell.
