A R T S 272 CS D Seven years ago, local artist Margaret Petterson began sharing her gallery walls at 125 Church St., with the new owner, the now late John Carroll Doyle. Doyle's works continue to hang at the John C. Doyle Gallery, as does the art of Petterson, who is as prolifc as ever. Now that she's been showing her work in the space for more than 20 years, she continually creates works inspired by beautiful, oak-shaded Lowcountry roads, marsh waters, old Charleston homes and the natural color she fnds in every scene. She calls herself an intuitive painter, who uses sudden spurts of energy when she paints. Petterson says, "Nature is bursting with color, and one of my goals is to share it with others." Though she began her career in oils and wa- tercolors, the artist now focuses on oils and monotypes, and has become one of the premier monotypists in the community. She has appeared on national television, in countless books and on magazine covers, and in 2002, Petterson painted the offcial poster for the famous Cooper River Bridge Run.
