A new exhibition by artist Craig Ragsdale is now open at Centre Stage in Greenville.
Presented by the Metropolitan Arts Council, the exhibition features 15 landscape watercolors on display through Nov. 13 and online at greenvillearts.com/craig-ragsdale.
Painted entirely with pixels, the series of work combines Ragsdale’s love of painting with photography and emphasizes the fact that life has continued in spite of the global pandemic.
“Each day is a gift, and we never know what lies ahead in our journey,” Ragsdale says. “While many facets of our daily routines have come to a halt, there are still parts of our lives and the world around us that continue to evolve and grow. Moving Through Uncertainty explores beauty, solace and growth in a time of great unknown.”
Ragsdale says the series of landscapes commemorates the places he and his family have visited over the last few months. Known for his colorful paintings of the natural world, Ragsdale developed his passion for art at an early age and credits his teachers and mentors, including renowned watercolor artist Mary Whyte, with inspiring his art journey.
He also channels his design and creative energies into marketing, advertising and graphic design at his family’s business in Easley, Martin Printing Company.
View the “Moving Through Uncertainty” exhibit from 2-6 p.m. Tuesday through Friday at Centre Stage, 501 River St. You can also see Ragsdale’s work by appointment at his studio located inside Brandon Mill on Abney Street in West Greenville. Call 864-420-6983 for more information.
