This month, mixed-media artist Karin Olah is leaving the Lowcountry for Boulder, Colorado. To say farewell, SCOOP Studios is hosting “Unwound and Bound,” showing some 20 of her latest works from August 5 to 27. While all are created using her signature layering of textiles with gouache, acrylic, and graphite, half of the pieces were directly inspired by the plant world. “In this series, I express the petals of magnolia and orchid blossoms with silk and cotton and patchwork imaginary bouquets,” she says. In the other half, “I let the organic shapes learned from my first series transform into abstract studies.” View the fresh creations during the August 5 opening reception from 5 to 8 p.m.
