Artist Bio

Joyce Oates

photograph of artist Joyce Oates

As the retired postmaster of USPS in Prosperity, S. C., I now have the time to pursue my passion for painting. I paint mainly in oil, but also use acrylics and watercolors when needed. I have been commissioned to paint portraits, murals, and landscapes. I enjoy painting Lake Murray water birds (ducks, Canadian geese, egrets, and blue herons). I have entered and sold paintings in the S.C. State Fair Art Exhibit. As a member of Chapin Crooked Creek Art League, I was an award winner several years in their Annual Art Exhibits & Juried Shows. I have painted murals in homes and in our church. I paint on commission for portraits of children, pets, bridal couples, and portraits from photos of old homes and family members. My work is hanging locally in Newberry, Prosperity, Chapin, and Little Mountain galleries.

The Chophouse/Deca Gallery is located inside the Chophouse of Chapin on inner wall shared with the Deca Dessert Bar at 301 Columbia Avenue in Chapin (across from the High School). We are excited to partner with the Happy Fork restaurant group to showcase the artwork of local artists.

A collection of art by one to two artists is featured in this gallery in a display that rotates every three months. The gallery is open to the public during normal business hours.
