Photos from the CFADA’s Painting in the Park

Hundreds of art enthusiasts came to Washington Park on a chilly Saturday morning to watch the CFADA artists create works of art that were auctioned off that evening at the Charleston Art Auction. This plein air event is part of the Charleston Fine Art Annual weekend presented by the Charleston Fine Art Dealers’ Association that traditionally take place the first weekend in November in Charleston, SC. The weekend is filled with gallery receptions, art stroll, plein air painting and art auction. It benefits the local art programs at high schools that participate in the CFADA’s High School Art Competition. This year’s art competition was judged by Ellen D. Moryl of the City of Charleston Office of Cultural Affairs, Darcy Shankland of Charleston Magazine, Jim Braunreuther of the Charleston Country School District and Karen Ann Myers of REDUX. Colleen Brennan of the School of the Arts won the first place with her painting entitled “Pacify, Not Glorify.” The second place went to Louisa Ballou also from the School of the Arts for her painting “Hunger.” The third place was awarded to Akeem Pinckney of St. John’s High School for his painting entitled “Brick by Brick.”
