ART on the Square Gallery

Associate Artist

Kay Bilisoly

“My paintings represent the colors, locales, and impressions of life as portrayed in a variety of styles by an artist who relishes exploration.”

Beginning her life as a practicing artist at a “certain age”, Kay is mostly self-taught.…learning by doing and putting miles on her paint brushes. Participation in workshops with nationally-recognized professional artists have been her primary avenues of instruction.  In addition to local subject matter, painting trips to Italy, Spain, Alaska and the American Southwest continue to provide inspiration for many paintings. Kay Bilisoly loves catching the eye with color and invites the viewer to exam her work closely to see underlying layers of texture and hue. She paints in mixed-media, collage, acrylics, and oil.  Bright colors and complex texturing are the hallmark of Kay’s abstract paintings.  The low-country has been influential in prompting her to return to plein air painting as well as working in her studio.

After being involved in the art community in Wilmington for more than 20 years and being honored with a Lifetime Membership to the Wilmington Art Association, a move to Goose Creek in 2021 propelled her to begin to look for nearby art connections and to meeting more like-minded artists. As a result Kay has recently become an exhibiting member of the Summerville Art Guild and the Goose Creek Art Guild.
