“Farmer’s Market” by Joan Moreau McKeever

Art League member Joan Moreau McKeever will showcase her artwork in her exhibit, “Taking a Leap; The Art of Discovery,” on display at Art League of Hilton Head Gallery through May 1.

McKeever is a well-rounded artist whose work is sure to appeal to a wide audience. Loose or precise brushstrokes with vivid or muted colors; serene Lowcountry landscapes in oil, acrylic or pastel; or brash, whimsical collages made of washi tape – McKeever does it all. “I experiment. I take risks. I am constantly trying new media and techniques,” she said. “I am still searching for ‘me.’”

A Connecticut native, McKeever was first introduced to art by Ted Davies, a renowned woodcut artist, and has been creating art ever since, whether in the form of paintings and collages or commercial advertising and graphic design. She ran two advertising agencies before moving to the Lowcountry and returning to fine art. McKeever was recently inducted into the National Association of Women Artists.

Art League Gallery is now open every day: Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Sunday noon to 4 p.m., and 90 minutes before every Arts Center performance.

Art League is located mid-island inside Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, 14 Shelter Cove Lane on Hilton Head Island. Art League of Hilton Head is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit visual arts organization on Hilton Head Island with a synergistic art gallery and teaching Academy.
