Large Margaret Petterson Oil on Canvas, Palm Tree Charleston, 2004. Canvas Wrapped Stretcher. Measures 54"x54"x1.50". Purchased at her studio-gallery, 125 Church Street, Charleston, SC. PROVENANCE: A Charleston SC Private Estate. Margaret Petterson is a Lowcountry Painter and resident Charleston artist. Her intuitive approach to art has brought her national and international recognition for her oil paintings, watercolors and mixed-media monotypes. The artist has appeared on national television, her paintings have been displayed in embassies in both Jordan and Australia and locally she is proud to be an active leader in Charleston's growing art community. Originally from Loris, South Carolina, Margaret moved to Charleston at the age of eight. Growing up in the lowcountry meant being surrounded by the beauty of the marshes, oak-shaded roads, and historic architecture of the Southern city. "I've always been an artistic person," she says, "but it wasn't until well into my twenties that I began taking it more seriously. I took a watercolor class at the Gibbes Studio of Art, and attended several workshops with local notables...and it seemed as if my artistic career just fell into place." An artist whose training includes studies at Charleston Southern University, multiple workshops locally and nationally, as well as printmaking studies with Patrick Aubert in Florence, Italy, Margaret is one of Charleston's most lauded artists. Awards include first place in the Springfest ‘92 exhibit in Charlotte, N.C. and inclusion in the competitive Winterpark Arts Festival, and the Festival of the Masters at Disney in Florida. She was selected as Artist of the Year for the 5th Annual Film Festival Worldfest-Charleston. Margaret's work has also appeared in several publications including the a book titled, Watercolor for the Serious Beginner (Watson-Guptill Publications, N.Y. 1997), the cover of Charleston Place Magazine, and the Cooper River Bridge Run poster, as well as feature articles in American Art Collector, Art Galleries and Artists of the South, and Southern Living magazines.Two of her works were also selected by the U.S. Ambassador to Australia to be shown in Canberra and Ammon, Jordan.
