Main & Maxwell in Greenwood, SC, will be hosting an artist reception on Monday, Nov. 28, 2016, from 5:30 – 7pm. “Against the Grain” features the work of three artists who work primarily in wood; Caroline Harrington, Hal Taylor, and Dolores von Rosen. During the reception the artists will be on hand to discuss their work and offer special purchasing opportunities.
Caroline Harrington, who currently lives in Hilton Head, SC, is an equestrian and artist. Her work is dedicated to the art of turning historic, reclaimed barn wood into beautiful, nature-themed works of art. She paints lifelike horses, sea creatures and forest animals on reclaimed and recycled barn board that she collects from around the country.
Dr. Hal Taylor is a wood worker who specializes in turned and sculpted wood art. His award-winning work has been displayed around the country including at the American Association of Woodturners 30th Anniversary Juried Show, “Turning 30”, in Atlanta GA. Currently, Taylor has a large inventory of hand turned bowls, vessels and wall hanging pieces on display at Main & Maxwell.
Dolores von Rosen grew up in Coroneca, SC, and graduated from Lander University and later the University of Tennessee. After teaching for a number of years on the west coast she married and moved to the North-West Territories of Canada, then on to Vancouver, Edmonton and finally Windsor, Ontario where she was the founder of The South-Western Ontario Basket Guild. In 1996 she retired and she and her husband moved to Chappells, SC, where she started the Lakelands Basket Guild. Well known for her beautiful basketry, von Rosen teaches workshops both in South Carolina and Windsor, Ontario.
