April 28 – June 4, 2022 | opening reception April 28, 2022 | 5:30 – 7:30 pm
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 also in its 25th year. A diverse array of media in both two and three-dimension, all completed by local artists within the past two years, will be exhibited. This year’s judge is South Carolina painter Alicia Leeke, who uses digital technology to incorporate scientific-research-related imagery into her work, thereby blending her passion for art and science.
