The Pink House Gallery

Alice Stewart Grimsley

Three prints by Alice
Alice captures the Charleston scene with rich vibrant colors.

Alice Stewart Grimsley, native of the South Carolina Lowcountry, resides now in a rural area by Swinton Creek, on Yonges Island. Born and reared in Charleston, she moved to Yonges Island during the turmoil of Hurricane Hugo in 1989. Her Studio, also located on Swinton Creek, provides a creative respite from the rigors of co-owning the ever busy Pink House Gallery, in downtown Charleston. Alice is also an exhibiting member of Lowcountry Artists Ltd., whose gallery is at 48 East Bay St., Charleston.

Upon receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree from Winthrop College in 1971, Grimsley was an art teacher at the high school level. In 1986 she was selected to judge the Scholastics National Art Competition for young adults. In order to enhance her devotion to nature and the South Carolina lowcountry, she completed a Masters Degree in Biology at the Citadel. Wishing to pursue a personal full time commitment to painting fine art, Alice retired from the public school system in 1988 and has achieved continuing recognition for her work since then. Grimsley's fascination with the play of light and shadow, the intensity of color, and the use of strong contrasting values are signatures of her painting style. The viewer is able to almost enter into her paintings of Charleston street scenes and almost able to walk down the country road paintings for which there is a constant demand.

The Grimsleys have one grown son, now serving his country on active duty in the US Army on his third tour in Iraq. Their house is also home to their two cats and Alice often includes a kitty in her paintings to show her love of them.

Grimsley is a member of the Charleston Artist Guild has won many awards for her watercolors. She was the consultant for the founding of the Edisto Art Guild and is a very popular guest artist/demonstrator at guild meetings all over the region. Alice also offers workshops and continuing lessons at her Studio and is available to give workshops all over the country. Her teaching abilities produce immediate and pleasing results for the beginning watercolorist. The originals and prints of this talented artist appear in collections worldwide and returning visitors to Charleston seek out her work.
