“A Tribute: Honoring Past Members and Their Work” is a look at a diverse selection of member artwork that has been on exhibit throughout Art League’s 50-year history.
An opening reception will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Sept. 28.
On display will be the works of more than 30 artists, including one of the Art League’s founding members, Walter Greer, one of the foremost Lowcountry American artists and the island’s first resident artist; Suzanne McCullough Plowden, whose mural study “Early Clockmaking” can be found in the Smithsonian; Yvonne Stark, known for her impressionistic landscapes; Nancy Wittke, organizer of the Art & Flower Show and Fabulous Fakes, two beloved annual ALHH special events; and Gretchen Ramsey, Art League’s first president.
“Art League is a collection of artists inspired by the island, its people, and its natural beauty. Our artists are brought together by a love of learning and art making, and by the camaraderie of working and exhibiting in a supportive community atmosphere,” said Kristen McIntosh, Art League general manager. “This exhibit is a way to honor those who led us to where we are today.”
The exhibit and reception are free and open to the public.
