Martha Worthy & Linda Warner Constantino

5pm – 8pm


Refreshments served.
The show will hang through March 28th.

Two professional Lowcountry artists and longtime friends have come together to exhibit their new artwork in their upcoming show entitled Counterpoints.

Counterpoints highlights the work of two artists whose individual styles and media distinguish their work. Martha depicts folklore themed paintings and creates mixed media sculptures while Linda paints botanical watercolors and makes art quilts. Both find that working in two contrasting art forms is inspirational and provides a stimulating change of pace.

Linda Warner Constantino

Linda is also a long time Hilton Head Islander and taught Illustration at SCAD in Savannah for almost 20 years. She is dedicated to watercolors, both botanical and plein-air painting. Her love of art quilting is strongly influenced by Amish quilts translated into a modern vision of color and shape. She finds creating quilts to be a lot like the art of collage.

My botanical art is a celebration of the design and color nature. Painting in watercolor enables me to combine my love of drawing with that of watercolors. By emphasizing color, form and detail they o!er the viewer a second look at the nature around us. My art quilts are also inspired by colors that I see in nature and then translated into abstract designs using shape and color. Some designs represent a new interpretation of traditional quilt design and others are purely improvisational.

Martha Worthy

Martha is a long time Hilton Head Islander. She is an avid birder and naturalist. Her background in fine arts and textile design adds a dimension of surface design to her paintings. Her tactile sensibilities infuse her mixed media sculptures with a delightful use of found materials.

By using two contrasting forms of artistic expression through painting and mixed media sculpture, I am exploring entirely different ways of thinking creatively. “ere is, however, an underlying theme that unites these works, found in the ancient belief systems rooted in folklore, myth and legends. In each of these artworks, I invite the viewer to discover the spirit of these timeless and enduring stories.
