NV Realty Group hosts an ongoing rotation of fine art shows featuring local artists on Kiawah, Seabrook and Johns islands.
To date, together with their downtown office, more than $15,000 has been donated to the MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital, which opened in February.
The current show, which will conclude in late April, features artists Capey Freeman and Colleen Parker, who are residents of Kiawah Island. All works are original oil paintings, which include local landscapes and still life and a variety of other genres. 25% of sales will be donated to the hospital.
The MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and Pearl Tourville Women’s Pavilion is located near Calhoun Street and Courtenay Drive in downtown Charleston. The state-of-the-art facility is designed to integrate children’s care with obstetrical services. In addition to a family-centered labor and delivery unit, it has 250 beds dedicated to childhood illnesses, including cancer care.
NV Realty started its fundraising program three years ago with a goal of supporting the new hospital and promoting the work of local artists. Each show is kicked off with a wine and cheese reception and is on display for about two months. In addition to this fundraiser, NV donates $25,000 yearly to the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation. NV is a Nicklaus family-owned company. Its office is located at 1900 Seabrook Island Road, at the entrance of Bohicket Marina. Business hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. The public is invited to drop in to view the show – no appointment is necessary.
