Dennis Lake, Lowcountry artist and art teacher, will be showcasing his work in a variety of media at Art League Gallery this May and June. Lake's work is known for its intricate detail, traditionally realistic style, and subtle colors. His subjects range from portraits and wildlife to landscapes and still life.
"I look at the world around me as a constant source of inspiration," says Lake. "My hope is that the viewer can see the beauty that I have tried to preserve for a time."
Lake earned his BFA and worked briefly as an art director, but only returned to art after spending 20 years as an Air Force pilot. After retiring, Lake earned his Masters's in Art Education and began painting, exhibiting, and teaching art in Tennessee, where he won numerous awards in juried shows. Since relocating to the Lowcountry in 2009, Lake has taught art and exhibited at Art League of Hilton Head and Society of Bluffton Artists, and has served on the board of Art League of Hilton Head. He has won Best of Show at SOBA and People's Choice at Art League's annual show.
People, Places and Things runs May 24-June 25, 2022 at Art League of Hilton Head. An artist's reception, free and open to the public, will be held Wednesday, May 25, 5-7pm.
