Columbia, S.C.  – What a way to kick off the 2011 FOM Series season. Yes, it is a continuation of Bonnie’s show from December, but with a twist. Bonnie will be doing some live painting with her Ink and Wine series. This month is designed to be a smaller, more intimate evening with the artist. A chance to watch her work and even experience it personally…you’ll have a chance to sit for one of these Ink and Wine renderings, which will be available for purchase on the evening of the Series.  Also, Gervais and Vine will be here to provide the “wine” for the paintings as well as for your tasting.

Anastasia & Friends is providing the chance to have your New Year’s resolution etched in stone, which would then become a part of an installation at the gallery called Resolution Road for the February 3rd opening.  In collaboration, we will also feature an encore exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and mixed media by Paul Kaufmann, Michael Krajewski, Thomas Crouch, and Anastasia.

S & S Art Supply is proud to present Columbia artist, Rachel Thomason: Gilded Equines, which  is a selection of recent paintings. This show spotlights horses done in gold leaf, as well as other abstract and mixed media works. The gilded paintings range from small and intimate to large and dominating pieces.

The Tapps Art Center Project will reveal the second round of window installations.  The featured artists are Jamie Blackburn, Kara Gunter, Whitney Lejeune, Amanda Ladymon, Gina Langston Brewer, Susan Lenz, Khaldoune Bencheikh, Keith Tolen, Val Zaba, and Mathew John. The interior windows will showcase works by Jefferson Vimana, Pamm Collins, Kim Bookman, Sue Shrader, and Benira Sutphin. This series will remain on display through the end of February.   Other exhibiting artists include: Kirkland Smith, Carey Fluitt, Kjoy, Brent Nichols, Olivia Rae Thompson, LiKisha Dukes, Ian Dillinger, Gina Langston Brewer, Mercy McComb Clonts, Pamm Collins, Julie Larkin, June Tucarella, Amy Windland, Leanne Badeaux, and more.   Hors d’oeuvres will be provided by our neighbors at Villa Tronco and Hennessey’s.

Frame of Mind is open Tuesday through Friday 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday 12 pm to 4pm, and is located at 1520 Main Street across from the Art Museum in Columbia, South Carolina.
