The impressionist art created in Mark Horton’s workshop by local students will be on display in the Seabrook Island Lake House in March. The workshop concentrated on painting landscapes, skies and clouds beyond a literal interpretation. Mark Horton’s impressionist paintings portray nature in a way that reflects his own ideas and sensibilities while capturing the spirit, color and changing light of a place. He is particularly fascinated with the effects of light and weather upon the landscape. Students from Seabrook Island, Kiawah Island and Johns Island captured his style in his workshop and will be on display throughout the month of March.
