#CSOLShowhouse2017 ART

Karen Keene Day continues her Moments with Wild Horses series

Karen Keene Day debuted the latest additions to her Moments with Wild Horses series earlier this month. Using a palette knife and acrylic gel medium mixture, Karen captures the movement of these majestic creatures with bold swift motions. But they are more than just gorgeous pieces of art work, they are real wild mustangs that have found a place in Karen’s heart. Learn more about the stars of Majestic Motion below. 

Karen Keene Day

Above: Karen poses here with her 48 x 72 depiction of, Angeni, the lady of the show. 

MWWH #274,  Angeni, 60 x 48 $7,000

“Angeni is the star of my show, because she survived a rattlesnake bite to her nose almost suffocating her.  She lives on the sanctuary that is owned by the Serengeti Foundation in Disappointment Valley, Southwest Colorado.  Thankfully she is spunky, beautiful and in good health today.” – Day

Satinka, a wild mare, is Angeni’s friend in the Sanctuary. Satinka’s sire is Hollywood. He is seen in the big red painting #197. Her mother is Mahogany.

MWWH “Angeni , a wild mare, lives in the Sanctuary (next door to SCB) where the mustangs see TJ Holmes daily, so while wary, they are not as much as the Spring Creek Basin mustangs.”- Day    

Angeni’s sire is Chrome,#173. Jif is her mother. Angeni was born after the 2011 roundup.


Chuska – Wild mare living in Spring Creek Basin, CO.

TJ Holmes: “Chuska … she was actually named by me and Kat. And the Navajo “children” were all in their 20s. 🙂 They were on a Conservation Corps crew that was working in Spring Creek Basin, cutting and spraying (to keep it from growing back) tamarisk (an invasive shrub) along Spring Creek. They were from/based in Fort Defiance, Ariz., near which are the Chuska Mountains. There was a wildfire in the Chuskas around the time the filly was born … and when I didn’t hear back from the crew leader, we named her Chuska in their honor.”

Designer Showhouse 2017 | Pre Install

Hi all!

Have you heard about the Designer Showhouse at 36 Society Street yet? This is Charleston Symphony Orchestra League’s  2017 showhouse and each section of the stunning home is being done by different designers, landscapers, brokers, etc. The home is a stunning Greek Revival from around the 1840’s. Very Charleston.

Well our very own Michael Mitchell and Tyler Hill are designing the charming entry, the living room right beside the doorway, and the back hall leading to the kitchen. The paint colors are shades of gray, one sort of a charcoal and the other a light slate/blue color. Paired with the crisp, white, ornate molding, the walls and their lines feel so sophisticated and clean.

The living room has two floor length windows overlooking the expansive porch and substantial (for Charleston standards) yard. On the East wall is a fireplace with an extremely intricate, one-of-a-kind mantel. And the floors are practically in pristine condition with just enough blemishes to show the true historic charm.

So the team already installed a grand chandelier and curtains in the living room and the shades are so striking together. They have also installed two chandeliers in the entry and the back hall that go perfectly with the style of the home. I can’t wait to see what the rest of the install will bring!

Check back for the post-installation photos of their beautiful work or go see it for yourself when the house is open to the public — March 16th through April 15th.

See their website for details (such as open hours and how to get tickets).

Come see it!

Kings of Romance: John Crum + Brian Nash

With Valentine’s Day approaching, we can’t help but obsess over our resident romance artists, John Crum + Brian Nash.  They have very different painting styles and versions of romance but both reign supreme during February!  All the feels…

Cupid’s Arrow Struck Art This Year

Hello All,

As you (should) know, Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching! I know chocolates and flowers are an easy go-to, but we all know that a solid Valentine’s Day gift should really be more. Giving a great gift — be it artwork, furniture, or something your loved one’s had their eye on for awhile — is definitely better than hearing about it later, in a bad way.

So I have put together a list of stunning, unique pieces that will not only woo your S.O., but will leave a lasting impression of care, thoughtfulness, and most importantly, love. 

Some pieces on this list are obvious signs of romance, and some not-so-much! But each work of art is a guaranteed gift score! What’s more personal than a one-of-a-kind painting, in which no two strokes are identical?

Take a look at our artists’ work and get in touch with us to learn more about your favorite pieces!

That Moment When Love Strikes by J.K. Crum | Acrylic on Canvas | 12 x 12

Creating Quite A Stir I by J.K. Crum | Acrylic on Canvas | 24 x 36

Whose Divided Heart by Jamie Blackburn| Mixed Media on Canvas | 24 x 24

Moments with Wild Horses by Karen Keene Day | Acrylic on Canvas | 48 x 48

Who doesn’t love blush pink? Especially on Valentine’s!?

What Killed My Parents III by Philip Durst | Raleigh Cigarette Coupons, Thread, + Nails | 32 x 40 (framed)

I love this piece because although it adds great texture to a room, it also serves a conversational piece for years to come.

Sullivans Island SC IV by Chris Fulp | Oil on Canvas | 5 x  7 

This one may not seem traditionally romantic, but the classic style of the homes on Sullivans and the beautiful hues Fulp uses undeniably exude depth and beauty.

Transparent Radiation by David R. Head Jr. | Acrylic Painting, CMYK Screen Print on Canvas | 50 x 84

Perfect for your more cool-girl gift; this piece suits a more modern or eclectic space.

White Stripes by Josh Brown | Oil on Canvas | 48 x 60

Thinking About Monet by Alicia Leeke | Acrylic on Canvas | 24 x 36

Honestly, what is more romantic than a Sourthern landscape? Her work provides the perfect backdrop for all Nicholas Spark’s books-turned-movies.

Ladder Under the Stairs by Hirona Matsuda | Mixed Media | 12 x 10 x 2

These beautiful miniatures done by such a multi-faceted artist really emit a sentiment feel — this piece is like an interior designed-minimalist dollhouse dream.


Iridium by Jared Owens | Mixed Media on Panel | 31 x 31

something about her

Something About Her by Sara Pittman | Mixed Media on Panel | 8 x 8

If anyone wants to get this for me for Valentines…..Really, this is perfect for such a holiday.

Totem by Tom Potocki | Acrylic on Canvas | 8 x 10

This is one of my favorite pieces on hand at MH. Not only is Tom the nicest guy in the world, his wife and he the most charming couple you’ll ever meet, but also the color scheme portrayed is truly beautiful.
