The Kiawah Municipal Center on Betsy Kerrison Parkway will host the third annual Fine Art Show Aug. 1.
Eight members of the Kiawah Art Guild will display original representational and abstract paintings at the show, scheduled from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Admission is free, and all works will be for sale.
Residents and guests of Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns Island are welcome.
If you have yet to visit our beautiful new facility, this is an excellent time to do so.
Masks are required when waiting to enter the building and while inside. We ask all visitors to socially distance while viewing the art.
In addition to this yearly show, the members exhibit art at the Municipal Center year-round. These works hang in the hall leading to the meeting room.
Guests are welcome to view this rotating exhibit, which changes three times a year.
The guild was formed over 25 years ago. Our members, which number more than 40, participate in local shows and charity fundraisers. Membership is open to any painter who is a property owner.
Our artists work with oil, acrylics, pastels and watercolor. In addition to monthly meetings, we host two workshops a year with instructors from around the country.
In addition to studio painters, the guild has a dedicated plein-air group. Painting on location is a highly rewarding discipline that allows painters to study light and color from life rather than from photographs. Kiawah and the surrounding area offer endless artistic possibilities.
