Peggy Ellis – November 19, 2015
Four Corners Gallery in Bluffton is pleased to announce a one-woman show featuring award-winning artist Peggy Ellis. Peggy is the daughter of renowned artist Ray Ellis. She remembers being a child mesmerized watching her father paint seascape scenes from the tailgate of the family station wagon. As an adult settling in Boston Peggy took advantage of spending time with her Dad learning as many as his precious tips as possible. Along with the tips she also grasped his style and character.
After relocating to the Low Country, Peggy discovered painting heaven. Not only does Peggy share her bird’s eye view of the Charleston harbor but also her travels abroad with her oils and watercolors. Peggy and her husband Peter enjoy their time together traveling and sharing their love for the landscape through their artist’s eye.
Peggy had the distinction of being asked by the Art Fields organizers to give a talk during their most recent show this spring. She also had two of her entries accepted to make up some of the 110 pieces out of 3000 entries to be curated into the Carolina’s Got Art Show in Charlotte. Her work is becoming highly sought after in a number of private collections throughout the U.S.
This show will focus on her more recent works that will carry the viewers’ eye on some of Peggy’s adventures.
