One of the pioneering gallery owners on Hilton Head Island is celebrating 32 years as owner of The Pink House Gallery.
Nancy Voegele has over those many years shaped the futures of hundreds of local artists as well as several artists with national reputations.
The Pink House Gallery was first housed in the famous Pink House out on U.S. 278, and later on Marshland Road. Its now at 1503 Main St.
Voegele has provided not only a place to exhibit and sell fine art and art crafts, but a setting for arts instruction and classes.
“I’ve been lucky, and have been in close touch with some amazing artists,” said Voegele, “And through it all, I’ve been blessed with the assistance of Marsha Layman, my son, Daniel and lots of friends. It makes such a difference.”
Currently, Voegele curates and presents the work of more than 15 artists.
“I’m happy to exhibit the work of the very talented Art Cornell, Jane Arson and Mary Sullivan, “ said Voegele, “to name just a few.”
You’ll find artwork in a variety of mediums — original paintings in oil, acrylic, watercolor, pastels and photographs along with posters, and unusual dimensional work.
Visiting the gallery is like visiting a good friend who cares a lot about art.
“One of my major focuses is custom framing,” said Voegele. “I’ve been adding to my framing resources and framing equipment. My high tech mat cutter makes it possible for us to create classical framing, and also to offer incredible shapes and an unending variety of themes.”
There are gifts to be found at The Pink House Gallery, too.
Voegele and The Pink House Gallery remain one of Hilton Head’s gifts to the artistic community, and they continue to win the public’s appreciation.
Artist, musician, teacher and writer Nancy K. Wellard focuses on portraying and promoting the cultural arts, first in Los Angeles and, for close to 30 years, in the Lowcountry. Email her at email@example.com.
