Mount Pleasant Artists Guild kicks off season

As seen in Moultrie News

The Mount Pleasant Artists Guild began its season with guest speaker West Graser on Monday, Sept. 12. Fraser is one of the leading American artists in the representational and plein air tradition. He has painted throughout the U.S. and internationally, but his passion always draws him back to the marshes and landscapes of Georgia and the South Carolina coast. Paintings and books by West Fraser may be seen at the Helena Fox Fine Art Gallery, 106-A Church St. in Charleston, and also online.


The Mount Pleasant Artists Guild has other speakers lined up for its upcoming meetings.

At the Monday, Oct. 3 meeting, Susanne Frenzel will speak. Frenzel grew up in Germany and moved to the U.S. in 1990. She experiments with various medias and multiple textures, following her spontaneous perceptions and inspiration to create abstract paintings. Frenzel’s art has been shown nationally and internationally, and has received numerous awards in many juried art shows. Currently her paintings are exhibited at the Charleston Art Guild Gallery, 160 East Bay St. in Charleston. Frenzel has served as a board member for both the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild and the Charleston Artist Guild for many years. She is currently volunteering as the CAG co-director of artistic growth and teaches German at the Citadel.

Mount Pleasant Artists Guild meetings are held the first Monday of each month, September through May at the Mount Pleasant Town Hall, 100 Ann Edwards Lane.

A social begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by the meeting at 7 p.m. New members are always welcome, including beginning art students and anyone with an interest in art. There are opportunities for artists to exhibit their work, paint and learn with other artists.
