Community Foundation Artist-in-Residence Program

Announcing the 2017 Reserve at Lake Keowee’s Artist in Residence

The Reserve’s Community Foundation wishes to welcome Charlie Pate for the 2017 Artist In Residence program during the week of May 14-20th.  Charlie is a Painter and Sculptor, who gravitates to pastel as medium of choice.  On Monday, May 15th a Pastels Workshop will be held on the Orchard House Veranda from 11am-3pm,  members are encouraged to bring supplies and easels and can join him at this workshop. On Tuesday, May 16th a Reception and Art Show will be held at Founders Hall from 4-6pm.  On Thursday, May 18th Charlie will demonstrate sculpting at the Market and Reserve members are invited to stop by and watch and learn about his sculpting, and share in his life’s work.  Pate’s artwork is a career-long love affair with the natural beauty of South Carolina; his color-drenched cotton fields, reminiscent of his childhood in the Lowcountry; the quintessential seascapes and marshes, drawn from the coast; and from his home in the foothills, his works proclaim the fragile beauty of the Carolina mountains.  For more information visit his website 

The Reserve at Lake Keowee Community Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2018 residency. Applications will be accepted until December 15th, 2017.
