Life Imitates Art at The Gibbes Museum

Welcome please join me for an exciting exhibit I viewed this last November in Charleston, South Carolina at The Gibbes Museum. I'm posting to City Daily Photo.

The Gibbes Museum of Art statement- Through our complicated history, through light and shadow, we have persevered-humanity intact. Art is the reason.

This exhibit is titled Life Imitates Art.
Join the #MuseumChallenge and recreate your favorite work of art.
Pictured below is Grace the Pug recreating Mrs. Robert Gilmor, Jr (Sarah Reeve Lodson, ca.1790-1866)1823 by Thomas Sully 

Emmy and Sarah Ross recreate
 Edmund Charles Tarbell's The Sisters 1921.

I think these girls are priceless in their portrayal. Great job.

"I hate to hear you talk about all women as if they were fine ladies instead of rational creatures. None of us want to be in calm waters all our lives."
Jane Austin

"Art transcends culture boundaries." Thomas Kinkade

This art recreation project speaks to me.

Here are a few more items we found

 Here's to having an excellent adventure

Thanks for stopping in and for your comments.
Take good care of you.
