Gallery 412 Opens 2-D and 3-D Works of Denise Greer and Jim Wade

Gallery 412 of the Florence Regional Arts Alliance will open "The 2-D and 3-D Worlds of Denise Greer and Jim Wade" beginning Thursday, June 2 with a Wine and Cheese Opening from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. The exhibition will continue through Thursday, June 30 and will be open daily Monday through Friday from 1:30 p.m. until 4:30 p.m. The show will feature 40 work by two-dimensional artists Denise Greer and 20 works by three-dimensional artist Jim Wade. Having moved to South Carolina from her native New Jersey only six years ago, Greer resides in Rembert and is developing quite a distinguished reputation for herself with works in watercolor, acrylic, pastels, collage, and, her own personal specialty, mixed media. Wade is a native North Carolinian who graduated from East Carolina University with a B.S. degree in Arts Education. He relocated to South Carolina to teach art in Sumter, where he has made his home for over thrity years and where he also earned his Masters in Art degree from the University of South Carolina. A true Gemini, Wade enjoys creating art using a broad variety of media, a characteristic that has been influenced by his love of travel, to over 5 of the 7 continents and to 48 of the 50 states. He was chosen as a Fulbright recipient to Belgium and The Netherlands for Arts Education. Both Greer and Wade had participated in numerous shows and competitions. As a result, original works by each of them adorn homes and are part of collections far and wide.
