Mitchell Hill Gallery, 438 King St., Charleston, SC
Friday, May 10, 2019, 5 – 8pm

“Modern abstract artist Linwood will debut fifteen original works of art at Mitchell Hill Gallery beginning on May 10th, during a solo show opening night cocktail party with the artist, local collectors, and editors. The new pieces underscore Linwood’s mastery of mixed media; often layers of acrylic, oil, pastel and collage interplay on his canvases.

Assessing the body of the work coming to Charleston, Linwood notes, “Abstract art challenges each viewer to find meaning. But that said, I will comment that joy is an omnipresent theme in my work. Additionally, I invite all to find a signature bateau [boat] in each piece. I’ve embraced this symbol of life’s transcendence and the buoyancy of the human spirit.”

Commenting on Linwood’s place in the Charleston art scene, Mitchell Hill co-owner, Michael Mitchell, adds, “Linwood’s paintings resonate in our growing artistic community. Collectors both locally, and from out of state, are drawn to Linwood’s use of color, including unusual pairings, as well as his artful balance between bold and delicate brush strokes. Linwood always excites dialog and conversation, one of the higher callings of art in our view.”

The Mitchell Hill showroom is located 438 King Street in Charleston and open Monday through Wednesday from 10-6, Thursday through Saturday 10-9, and on Sunday 11-5. All are invited to the Linwood opening night party, Friday, May 10th from 5-8pm. To RSVP, simply email
