November 6 – December 31st 2023: Solo exhibition in Lacaster County Council of the Arts' Historic Springs House Gallery, 201 W. Gay Street, Lancaster, SC. Click here to view the virtual gallery for "Soundtrack."

STATEMENT:  “Soundtrack” includes many of my paintings that followed the path from musical inspiration to artistic expression. The artwork is not necessarily a literal depiction of the song that inspired it. Rather, it is my attempt to capture the mood and message that the song evoked for me, so it is extremely personal. 

My Moth Bouquet
October 2023: Painting “My Moth Bouquet” awarded first place in the Lancaster County Council of the Arts' annual Marian  Hagin's juried exhibition.

August 2023: Painting "Stash" exhibited in the South Carolina Watermedia Society's 46th annual national competition.

Tuesday it Rained

October 2022: Awarded first place in the Lancaster County Council of the Arts' annual Marian Hagin's juried exhibition for the watercolor, "Tuesday it Rained."
Comments by the juror, Susan Irish: "Hyper photorealism in watercolor is a difficult combination. See the drops of rain glistening atop the umbrella. Well done. The artist captured the subject in action, inviting the viewer to be part of a very private moment. The title, evocative of a diary entry, adds to the moodiness of the painting."


Gina participated in the Lancaster County Council of the Arts' "Paws on Parade" Litter #2, a public art project that places creatively designed fiberglass dogs and cats around Lancaster County. Learn more about Paws on Parade.
