Leasa Segura/Booth 132

Leasa was introduced to antiques at an early age when her parents bought an abandoned 1800s house and began to reclaim some of the antique furniture. Items in her booth range from fun to formal, primitive to traditional, and they often include the unexpected. If she doesn’t have it, she’ll still be happy to help you look for it.

New To You

New to You has been a saying of mine for years. I have always loved perusing and collecting at antique shops and thrift stores. I would be drawn to unique items and things of the past, things that have been discarded and no longer needed. This drew me to refurbishing, and a love for making pieces new and unique. Everything is affordable, and larger purchases can be put on lay-a-way.  My garage is always filled with unique treasures that I love to stock my booth with, and you will never see it empty. Please come by and see for yourself.

Courtney Rugg

Courtney comes from a lineage of artists. Her great grandmother was a painter, a grandfather was a singer/actor, and a cousin is a photographer. Courtney believes that God has blessed her and to honor God and the gift he gave her, she paints using the medium that she feels best suits that subject. She paints subjects that God puts on her heart so the result is a wide array of subjects and mediums. In addition to paintings, Courtney also sells original cards and a variety of antiques and what-nots.

 

We also have several local artists’ works on exhibit. They are:

Carolyn Griffin has loved to draw and wanted to be an artist from a very young age.  Although she was born in Washington, she spent most of her life in the Chicago area.  For many years she worked in the accounting field.  During this time she also completed an art degree at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.  Many summer weekends were spent participating in local art fairs.  About seven years ago she escaped the cold northern winters for the hot summers of South Carolina.

She works primarily in pastel and pencil, but works in other media as well.  Her love of nature and travel is reflected in very realistic images of landscapes, animals and flowers.  Many precious pets have been “immortalized” in her custom pet portraits.

Luiza Somodi is Russian born who spent her early years in New York City. She graduated from The Famous Artists School. She believes “painting is an endless challenge and a perpetual joy.  Art is a gift of God and must be used unto his glory.” She taught private piano lessons for 35 years hoping all the time to return to her other love, painting. She now resides in Aiken and is a member of Aiken Artist Guild and has exhibited at the Kroc Center, the South Carolina State Fair, the Arts and Heritage Center in North Augusta and the Aiken Center of the Arts.

Barbara Woolley- Barbara and her husband moved West in 1990. Barbara was inspired by the magical landscape of the Rockies and the American West and began painting the mountains and wildlife of Colorado and Wyoming. Currently she is enjoying painting in oil with a palette knife. For her, it’s all about color!!

Bill McDougall is a former Army Captain and retired as a Vietnam Veteran. He is a writer and an artist. His art has won competitions in Alabama and New York and sold his work from California to Connecticut. In 1979, his Painted Series on Vietnam traveled across the country with a mobile display of the proposed monument to raise money for “The Wall” in Washington, DC

Some of our vendors are also talented artists with work on exhibit. They are: Karen Bane , Courtney Rugg and Louise Mellon.
