"Island Treasures - Original Paintings by Addison Palmer" will be the featured exhibit Aug. 27 through Sept. 21 at Art League of Hilton Head.
An opening reception to meet the artist will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 4 at the gallery, 14 Shelter Cove Lane.
Palmer grew up on Hilton Head Island. His award-winning work focuses mainly on landscapes and animals - both wild and domestic - and largely features the beauty of the Lowcountry. His style ranges from clean-lined depictions in bold colors to serene landscapes and skyscapes using a minimal color palette.
"'Island Treasures' speaks for itself. Growing up on Hilton Head Island, I was fortunate to both see and feel the 'treasures'' of the island and the surrounding areas," Palmer said. "Since the age of 13, I have captured the beauty of Hilton Head with my original paintings. Today, my paintings are in homes and businesses around the world. People are able to enjoy the beauty of Hilton Head every day through my paintings, even though they might live far away."
In addition to painting, Palmer teaches painting classes, sometimes aboard cruise ships. He was honored to take part in the international "Birds in Art" show in 2018, one of only 90 artists around the world to participate. He now splits his time between his two studios on St Simons Island, Ga., and Winston Salem, N.C.
Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m., and 90 minutes prior at all Arts Center performances. For more information, call 843-681-5060 or visit artleaguehhi.org.
