The Spoleto Watercolors of Stephen Mueller and Carl Palazzolo

From the Collection of David and Carol Rawle

ROTUNDA GALLERIES


A program of Spoleto Festival USA and the Gibbes Museum of Art

This exhibition features extraordinary watercolor paintings by Stephen Mueller and Carl Palazzolo, created over a period of two decades when the artists visited Charleston during Spoleto season. Inspired by friendship, the rich culture of the Spoleto Festival, and the lush lowcountry environment, Mueller and Palazzolo found a perfect setting to explore the lyrical medium of watercolor in distinctive, though complementary, styles.

The Spoleto Watercolors of Stephen Mueller and Carl Palazzolo is made possible by the generous support of Gibbes, etc, the Medical University of South Carolina, The Albert Sottile Foundation, The Joanna Foundation, and South Carolina Bank and Trust.
