Pop in on Sept. 4

Despite what its name suggests, Meyer Vogl’s latest two-person exhibition does not feature the work of actual siblings. The two artists, Lori Putnam and James Richards, do consider themselves to have a sibling-like bond, though.

Putnam and Richards developed a close bond when they met over a decade ago and now they’re finally having a show together. Sibling Rivalry, featuring new work from both artists, opens at Meyer Vogl on Sept. 4.

“It seemed about time that we had an exhibit like this. We have such respect for each other’s work, and we enjoy each other’s company and painting together. This new body of work showcases our mutual love for the Lowcountry, our family and good friends.” said Putnam in a press release for the show. 

Meyer Vogl hosts an all-day pop-in on Sept. 4 — masks are required. On Sept. 4 at 1:30 p.m. join a Q&A with both artists on Instagram Live.
