If you have plans to visit Charleston this spring or summer, the Charleston Renaissance Gallery is another great place -- apart from the Gibbes -- to see the work of Southern Modernists. Lately I've become interested in Chevis Clark, a Charlestonian who studied at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
Shown above is one of his mid-century pieces, Charleston Street, circa 1956. It is quite small, just 8 x 10 inches, and is done with casein on paper. For details contact the gallery. Clark's work is also in the Gibbes' collection.
Shown above, Gates of Iron, 1957, via the Gibbes.
And just as an irresistible bridge between this post and the previous one, here's a Ruthie Sommers-designed bedroom with what looks like a mid-century abstract on the wall and a "Fig Leaf" bedskirt and bolster. Image via L.A. Confidential, summer 2005.
