By Tina Mayland for The Island Connection
Some of the area’s leading artists will be participating in the Sea Islands Chamber of Commerce’s 11th Annual Art Walk at Bohicket Marina. This year’s line-up includes the following local artists: Kellie Jacobs, Tina Mayland, Sandra Roper, Colleen Wiessmann, Lisa Willits, Amelia Rose Smith, Jennifer Black, Fer Caggiano, Bob LeFevre and Helen Beacham.
Each of the featured artists is well known throughout the region, and looks forward to the chance to see one another, as well as the followers of their work. The show, which is always held the day before Easter, has increased in popularity over the years.
This year’s Art Walk will be held from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. in the parking lot of NV Reality at the entrance to Bohicket Marina.
The artists are housed under one big tent, and the event is open to the public, with ample parking available. Each artist will be displaying his or her own work, and all pieces are for sale. Many of the artists will also be painting live, so it’s a great opportunity to meet them and see their creative process in action.
Mark your calendars for April 3, the day before Easter. There’s no better way to spend a Saturday than looking at amazing art in a beautiful setting. You can find out more about this year’s Art Walk on the Sea Islands Chamber of Commerce website, seaislandschamber.org/Art_Walk.html. Artist Tina Mayland and the Chamber’s Executive Director Karen Thompson work together to set-up and promote the event each year.
