Mary Whyte's "We the People" at City Gallery

December 18, 2019 - Posted in Palmetto Scene by Libby Dallis

In 2010, internationally renowned artist Mary Whyte set out on an inspirational seven-year mission to paint fifty large-scale watercolor portraits of current-day American veterans. On October 25, ETV captured the opening reception of this extraordinary exhibit and some of the veterans’ reactions to their paintings. We The People: Portraits of Veterans in America will continue to be on view through December 22 at City Gallery in Charleston, S.C.   This is a remarkable series depicting military veterans of all ages and in all walks of life – culminating in a timeless portrait of and for the American people.
