What could be more apropos for the valentine season than artist Liz Roberts’ color-laden heart motif paintings?


The Sunset Beach artist’s work is the latest featured exhibit at Sunset River Marketplace gallery in Calabash.

The exhibit, “What the World Needs Now,” is a series of Roberts’ vivid acrylic work bringing her artistic passion to life.

It’s not just all about hearts, she explains—it’s about love—what the world needs now.

“She’s a loving person, and it shows in every painting,” gallery owner Ginny Lassiter says.

Roberts has painted and studied art locally and abroad for more than 20 years. Skilled in a variety of media, Roberts’ favorite is oil on canvas.

Roberts is inspired by her world travels, music, dance and coastal beauty.

Prior to creating art, she taught yoga and Tai Chi and practiced therapeutic massage. She and her husband, Tom, own a real estate investment company and also perform as a Celtic duo. Roberts is percussionist and guitarist and also plays Irish whistle.

Sunset River Marketplace is at 10283 Beach Drive in Calabash. Winter hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.
