Lisa Gilyard-Rivers Exhibit
The Etherredge Center
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, “Every artist was once an amateur.” Beaufort-based artist Lisa Gilyard-Rivers seems to defy this sentiment. When art enthusiasts gaze upon her paintings, stroked with emotions of love and pain, stories of yesterday and today.Although her career as an artist did not begin until the age of 52. Her children were overjoyed on Christmas day 2016. They were overwhelmed with awe and emotion. And her career as an artist began. What will catch your attention are the vibrant colors that shine boldly off each canvas. Lisa paints with love, and it is felt in her home on the porch, where she creates a Masterpiece with her brushes. The family stories are created with her paint brush strokes and in each finished piece. Her use of multiple mediums include; acrylic, oil, collage, and textile.
