PAINTING the Lowcountry is a passion for both Eleanor Parker and Hilarie Lambert. The beauty of the marsh, the architecture and the people have been captured in the work of the artists. Both are devoted to their craft, whether they’re on location or painting in their studios.
Lambert has received numerous awards nationwide and participates in a variety of plein air events and shows. Her work runs the gamut, from cityscapes of Paris and Charleston to still life and figurative work. Her pieces are highly valued for their strong color palette, design and brushwork.
Parker grew up on the waters of the Lowcountry and has raised her children on Shem Creek with her husband, Russ. She is most interested in the sky and its varied light effects on the waters and marshlands, and her work reflects the mood of this landscape. Her use of a softened palette moves the viewer into and around the paintings and evokes the scenes so well loved here.
Lambert and Parker are busy working on commissions and painting new work for the upcoming Southeastern Wildlife Exposition (SEWE) on February 12–14, 2021. Visitors are welcome to visit their studios in James Island and Mount Pleasant respectively by appointment.
