The subjects move in and out of realism via use of intense complimentary colors and make exceptional use of negative space for balance.

Michael Parks Gallery, in Charleston, SC, is pleased to present “ ’Til the Cows Come Home,” an exhibit of watercolors and mixed media with a focus on cow art by M.C. Churchill-Nash. Work will be on view Oct. 1 through Oct. 31, 2012. A reception will be held on Oct. 5, 5-8 PM, during the First Friday Artwalk on Broad Street.

M.C. has been an avid equestrian all her life, and has an ongoing fascination for horses and cows (among other domesticated creatures) as subject matter for her paintings. Viewed through her personal watercolor style, the subjects move in and out of realism via use of intense complimentary colors. The compositions are compact and make exceptional use of negative space for balance. While animals are a constant in her paintings, Churchill-Nash works are entirely fresh and never drift into cliché.

M.C. Churchill-Nash is a South Carolina based artist who has exhibited in juried and invitational shows throughout the Southeast and the US. Her watercolor “Farrier Day” is an award winner at the 35th Annual South Carolina Watermedia Society Exhibition 2012, and is included in the 2012-13 traveling show. Both watercolor and pen & ink work have won awards during her career. She received an AFA from Sullins College, and a BFA at the University of Tennessee.
