On April 11, 2014, artist Peter Karis announced that a new work of art has been added to his exhibit at Karis Art Gallery in Hilton Head, S.C. The piece of art added is called "Mystery Love."

The new piece is by Karis himself. Peter Karis is an artist who is known for being an expressionist who works in acrylic. Karis paints people, flowers, trees and other objects.

Karis' art has been exhibited throughout the U.S. including the Nabisco Gallery, Cleveland Clinic, Cooperstown Art Museum, Butler Museum and Kent State University.

This artist creates his art as he interprets the objects versus how others might see them. He has won numerous awards, one of them being the Juno Award. The award is known as the Canadian equivalent of a Grammy (for best album cover design).

In 1993, Karis was one of three American artists selected to exhibit at the Gallery Roseg. The galler is located outside of St. Moritz in Switzerland.

In 2005, Karis was nominated to participate in the Annual International Biennial of Contemporary Art. That event was held in Florence, Italy.

"Mystery Love," among many other works by Peter Karis, is represented by the Karis Art Gallery at Village of Wexford. The gallery is located at 1000 William Hilton Parkway on Hilton Head Island.

Artist Peter Karis is an expressionist, painting people, flowers, trees and objects as he interprets them, not as they seem to be.

Karis works in acrylic and the subject matter is interpreted with maximum color, conveying emotion and power.

The work tends to draw you into a memory of your own, more evocative than descriptive. - Karis Art Gallery
