Artist's Statement 

Beauty is everywhere. Light and color and nature rain down as good gifts. My desire is to showcase this grace with celebratory brushstrokes, applauding all that is good and oh so lovely in our world.

About the Artwork

Making Memories is a 4 foot tall free standing aluminum sailboat on a large wooden base. The sailboat is beautifully decorated in paints and other materials. The metal form was created by Steven Reed. The artistry on this sailboat was done by Kelly Pelfrey.

About the Artist

Kelly graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of South Carolina in 2003. As a lifelong resident of the Palmetto State, she highlights the beauty of the southern landscape, its hospitality and deep sense of home in her works. Much of her career centered on teaching art to children. In this new season, she is emerging as a contemporary impressionist, creating paintings “which speak of glory.”
