The Women of A&L Studios - Part II: Kiah Bellows

As we mentioned last week, Art & Light Gallery is lucky to play host to three beautiful artist studios and the women that occupy them are just as beautiful. Gallery owner and artist, Teresa Roche, local talent, Kiah Bellows and the newest addition, Dorothy Shain. This week, we take a look at Kiah Bellows and what she has going on.

Bellows has been an Art & Light staple for years, balancing her painting with assisting Teresa in running the studio spaces and the gallery. At the start of 2018 she made the choice to focus on her work full-time and move her studio out of the main gallery and into the A&L Studio Cottage in the rear of the property. If you haven't yet visited her new studio, make sure to come on out and say hello during MAC Open studios November 9th - 11th.

The very wise decision to paint full-time and move to the cottage has given her more space to work and more time to propel her career forward. In the past eight months, Bellows has had two pop-up releases through us, prepared for a two exhibitions and gained a new gallery.

Next Friday, you can see Bellow's latest works paired with one of our newest A&L artists, Eric Benjamin. "Dance in Chaos" is sure to be an incredible show and will run from Friday September 7th - September 29th. We hope to see you at the opening celebration on the 7th from 6pm - 8pm. 

If you are in Charleston, you can catch Kiah's work with our friends over at Miller Gallery and this November they will host a show with works by both Bellows and Teresa Roche.

We are so excited to see this local Greenville talent continue to grow and thrive doing what she loves! If you would like to keep up with Kiah's latest paintings, please head to our contact page and shoot us a message letting us know. We will add you to her "First Look" email list.
