About the Gallery
Julia Moore, an artist and art educator from Columbia, South Carolina, founded Over the Mantel Gallery in 2013. Julia and her Artistic Director, Julie Coffey, felt that the city needed a Gallery that appealed to its fast growing population of broadening diversity and backgrounds.
To that end, Julia and Julie began working with artists whose life experiences helped fashion the styles and techniques of their work. The resulting Gallery exhibitions relate the untethered reflections of the artists thus allowing the audiences to make better intuitive connections with their choices.
If you have specific questions about any of the paintings or would like to place a custom order, we would love to talk to you and help you.
"The freedom to paint is a gift. It is a gift because it is solely fueled by my senses and intuition. When I paint, there is no judgment call. The cerebral part of me takes a back seat and I do just what I feel. That is simple joy!" - Julia Seabrook Moore
