The Parks & Recreation Department is bringing more art to North Myrtle Beach. Artists Everywhere is a monthly art display at City Hall to showcase our local artist’s talent and provide beautiful public displays for our residents and visitors. We are working hard to put together a great line up of local artists varying from painters, to sculptors, to potters, and much more.
The Parks & Recreation Department is proud to present the art created by:
This month’s “Artists Everywhere” display is the colored pencil art of Sharon Sorrels. Sharon raised two sons and pursued careers in the arts and education in Washington, DC. She earned a BFA in Design with minors in Art History and Education receiving instruction from renowned artists Lois Mailou Jones and David Driskell at Howard University leading to positions at the National Gallery of Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts. Later, a Masters Degree in Library Science led to a rewarding career with the DC Public Schools.
Sharon and her late husband, Anthony, moved to Conway, South Carolina in 2006. Retirement in the beautiful and culturally significant coastal region has offered the inspiration to crate paintings and drawings reflecting the rich scenery and culture of the palaces and people of the area, emphasizing light and vibrant colors.
Sharon is a member of the Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild, the Seacoast Artists Guild, and the Colored Pencil Society of America and it’s local chapter, the Colored Pencil Society of South Carolina. She has participated in exhibitions and juries shows where she has been honored as featured artist, received best-in-show, and other awards. Sharon’s artwork can be viewed at the Georgetown Art Gallery, the Seacoast Artists Gallery, and the Museum Store of North Myrtle Beach. Paintings can also be viewed on her website.
Be sure to stop by City Hall and view her gorgeous work!
