Internationally recognized oil painter Peter Justl was completely captivated by Charleston’s charm, vibrant art community and fabulous residents, and strove to capture the sophistication and hospitality of the city in his work. Justl was born in Germany, immigrated to Canada, and later settled in Texas. After a long and successful career in architecture, Justl began fulfilling his life-long dream career as a full time artist. In “Charleston Charm,” Justl’s rich color palette perfectly captures the character and personality of the city. The public is invited to the opening reception on November 1st, and the show will be on exhibit throughout the month of November.
