Return to Nature: A Gullah Geechee Story

Return to Nature: Gullah Geechee Story and History is an exploration of the plight of the indigenous Americans and descendants of West Africans who inhabit the Sea Islands of South Carolina. This exhibition features dynamic bodies of work that examine the evolution of Gullah Geechee art, while chronicling history in relation to nature.

Featured artists include Jonathan Green, Sam Doyle, Amiri Farris, Natalie Daise, Diane Britton Dunham, Arriane King -Comer, James Denmark, Hank D. Herring, and Victoria Smalls.

While the artists depict aspects of the lives of ordinary people, the layered textures, and rich, vivid colors emanate the celebration of Creole culture, the vitality of the subject, and nobility. Both the art and the objects featured in this exhibition introduce its viewer to a culture, which is dominated by the honoring of ancestors, agriculture, sea island living, spirituality, and cultural heritage memories.

May 3rd - June 25th
Opening reception: May 13th from 5-7 PM
