Award-winning sculptors, Patz Fowle and Mike Fowle share an exhilarating life together that is fully engaged in the arts with works in public and private collections and permanent museum collections.  Exhibiting works at Maddison Square Gardens in New York, to Brookgreen Gardens, this collaborative couple utilizes innovative processes and techniques, working in everything from: natural clay from the earth to post-consumer discarded materials to ¼ inch structural steel plate. Their most notable large-scale, public art sculptures to date are: Big Bleu Birdnanna 25-foot tall, kinetic, metal, located in the heart of the Cultural Arts District in Downtown Florence, and the kinetic, metal sculpture, Upward and Onward designed to honor the life and achievements of NASA astronaut and American Physicist, Ronald E. McNair located at the Dr. Ronald E. McNair Life History Center in Downtown Lake City.

Patz Fowle and Mike Fowle have been International Artists-in-Residence in Tokyo, Japan and have studied abroad in Lacoste, France at the Savannah College of Art & Design. The Fowle’s have taught and inspired countless numbers of educators and students throughout their careers as Approved Teaching Artists through the South Carolina Arts Commission.  In addition to the Fowle’s own studio art practices, they guide, direct and share a love of art at the innovative, art studio they designed and created for High School students at the South Carolina Governor’s School for Science and Mathematics in Hartsville, SC.

University Place Gallery Solo Exhibition | Charlie Mills

University Place Gallery is excited to share a solo exhibition by Charlie Mills.

Painting Blind: Views For The Intuitive Eye

Charlie Mills’ beautiful and intuitively inspired abstract paintings have transformed University Place Gallery.

After Forty-eight years of commercial design work, Charlie Mills now focuses his time on abstract painting. His interest in non-literal expression is fueled by his focus on accessing the intuitive mind or the subconscious. Mills’ large scale paintings express clearly defined shapes and edges, calligraphic shapes and pin-striping. They are a result of the artist finding a balance of the analytical and the intuitive.

Please make plans to visit this visually striking exhibition.
