Twenty artists and friends visited the Mary Whyte watercolor exhibit at the Greenville Art Museum on Aug. 9.
The show featured Southern working class portraits executed by the watercolor painter, Whyte who worked for over 3 years researching and painting subjects found in occupations such as textile workers, fishermen, hotel workers, restaurant workers, musicians and others are captured in detail on large size watercolors on view at the Greenville Art Museum.
Whyte herself led the tour and explained many of the stories behind her work. Whyte’s paintings are framed by her husband.
This show will continue in Greenville until mid September and will then tour other southern cities including Charlotte.
Christine Mariotti, Tryon Painters and Sculptors vice-president, organized this art field trip and is planning future trips to Asheville and Spartanburg.
