Imagine you’re an artist; now, what will you create?

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the Historic Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival in Old Town, we asked: “What kind of art would you create if you had to pretend to be an artist and submit something to a gallery?”

Emmett McCracken, Bluffton: “Something related to the May River at high tide.”











Charles Gilbert, Charleston: “3D beer can art, sculpted to perfection.”











Jeff Burns, Charleston: “Underwater seascapes – it would have to be done in watercolors.”











Ben Traub, Okatie: “Probably something in nature. I like to fish, so probably photographs of fish.”











Hank Van Den Ende, Bluffton: “Probably a sculpture in clay, maybe weird faces, or whatever happens.”
