While we Savannahian’s like to think that we have some of the most cutting edge artists and galleries to be found in the lowcountry as a natural by product of the presence of the sprawling campus in the Historic District of The Savannah College of Art and Design, we tend to forget those equally gifted northern neighbors up the coast from the the Hostess City in the Holy City of Charleston. Our new found Low Country partner and friend, Ms. Laurel, posted her inaugural I Love Charleston blog about another accomplished coastal living artist, Dana Coleman back in October of last year. Now we have TWO REASONS to love our sister city of Charleston. Read Mrs. LaFlamme’s well done blog in it’s entirety below:
Born and raised in Charleston SC, Dana Coleman’s artwork has reached international status.
With his tribute to the “Priscilla Project” his work will be featured in documentaries and history books throughout the world. A graduate of Trident Technical College in Charleston and the University of South Carolina in Columbia, Dana is pursuing his dream as a professional artist.
“I love the deep rich colors of the Charleston area and the way the light and shadow play on the beautiful sunsets, marshes and buildings. These are the things I enjoy painting,” says Dana. “I am fascinated with the rich architecture in this beautiful, historic city.”
Dana is married to Hope Coleman and has three wonderful children; Dana Jr, Raheen and Iree. Says Coleman, “Raising children teaches you patience. God and my family are my first priority, and my inspiration. I would also like to thank my loyal collectors and enthusiasts for making me one of the hottest artist’s in Charleston and beyond.” Dana also contributes a really cool website called I Love Charleston.
