The artwork is up! Local Works displays rotating artwork in the office space from Charleston’s local artists. One talented individual showcases their pieces on the walls of Local Works for a three month period and all pieces are up for sale. Come check out our first artist, Thomas Sweeney. He will be showcased until the end of September!
A bit about the artist:
“Life drawing has always provided solace from architectural drawing for me. Eventually I realized there was an undeniable link between the two initially disparate aspects of my design process. One is not independent of the other. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Design from Clemson University I received a National Merit Scholarship to attend the Art Institute of Chicago. While at there I studied figure painting & drawing & taught in the metal & wood shop. I began post graduate work at the University of Illinois at Chicago and finished my Master of Architecture thesis at Clemson University. I currently live in Charleston, SC within a short distance from the office/studio in order to maximize time at home with my family and time spent making. Painting, while working at a design build firm, creates a combination of art and architecture that is typically latent and occasionally blatant throughout my work.”
