Opening and Awards Reception | Tuesday, May 2, 2017 5:30 – 7:30 pm
For information about the Opening Reception, please visit our calendar.
The Art Museum was conceived by a small but visionary group of local art enthusiasts, among them a group of artists formed in the late 1960s called the Waccamaw Arts & Crafts Guild. Beginning in the spring of 1969, a pattern of art exhibitions was established that continues today. To honor the integral role that the Guild played in the Museum’s establishment, the Museum proudly hosts the Guild’s annual spring juried art exhibition, which is now in its 20th year. A diverse array of media, including ceramics, collage, drawings, graphics, mixed media works in both two and three-dimension, paintings, photography, sculpture, textiles and wood carving, all completed by local artists within the past two years, will be exhibited. This year’s judge is professional artist Linda Daly Baker of Charleston, SC. Her watercolors capture the transformative effects of light and its ability to abstract the subject matter upon which it is cast. Baker teaches workshops internationally and is a signature member of a number of guilds, including the American Watercolor Society, the International Society of Experimental Artists, the National Watercolor Society and the Transparent Watercolor Society of America.
