ROCK HILL, S.C. — A bold painting by Winthrop University Professor of Fine Arts Marge Loudon Moody will be featured in a special exhibit in Charleston, S.C., beginning this weekend.

The City Gallery at Waterfront Park will host the exhibition featuring Moody’s work, “Chicago in Your Dreams.” An opening reception is scheduled for Friday, May 23, at 5 p.m. at the gallery, 34 Prioleu St., Charleston, S.C., 29401. It is free.

The exhibition is part of the Charleston Piccolo Spoleto Festival. The 17-day festival showcases the performing, literary and visual arts along with children’s activities, food, films, and more. The event began more than 30 years ago in Charleston as a way to showcase these different creative forms.

Moody and her husband, Fine Arts Professor Phil Moody, moved to the United States in 1983. Marge Moody began teaching at Winthrop part time in 1988 and has received numerous grants in support of her work, including from the S.C. Arts Commission, the Arts & Science Council of Mecklenburg County and from Winthrop. She’s also had exhibits in Washington, D.C. and New York City.

Moody’s work is inspired by the spirit of the places she visits and lives, she has said. Her abstract acrylic paintings “arrive at a harmonious expression of the essential nature of the subject.”

The exhibition runs through June 8. Gallery hours during the festival are: 10 a.m.-2 p.m. May 23; 10 a.m.-3 p.m. May 24, 29, and 31 and June 3-4; 10 a.m.-5 p.m. May 27; 10 a.m.-6 p.m. all other days; and noon-5 p.m. on Sundays. For questions about gallery hours, call the gallery at 843/958-6484.
