The Art Central featured artist for September is Christine Crosby
Crosby, a native Charlestonian and attended the College of Charleston, now resides in Summerville. She worked in the financial industry until a heart attack triple bypass surgery at the age of 34 made her take stock of what was important in her life. A lifelong love of art led to a new and less stressful career.
What had begun as therapy quickly became her passion. She took workshops with several well know local artists and then branched out studying on her own to develop her own personal and distinctive style.
A lifetime of exploring the Carolina Lowcountry has dictated her subject matter. The marshes, beaches and swamps and the creatures that inhabit them are her inspirations. Christine is happiest in or on the water swimming, kayaking, fishing or just sitting on a shore.
“Art is my escape. It is my hope that viewers of my paintings find the same peace and tranquility that I experience as I create them. My goal is to invest nature with therapeutic values, to paint meditative landscapes in a luminous style paying close attention to light and to set down very simply and sincerely my vision of nature.”
Crosby’s website is  www.christinecrosbyfineart.com
Located in historic downtown Summerville for over 14 years, Art Central Gallery is a cooperative fine art gallery featuring local, award-winning artists.
The gallery offers an exceptional selection of paintings, photography and designer jewelry as well as handcrafted pottery, carved walking sticks, wood turned bowls, sweet grass baskets, prints and note cards.
