The Hilton Head Art League schedule of exhibits this year is a menu for sampling what happens when the idea of “suffering” for one’s art is turned upside down. Here we see featured artists responding to the treatment of gentle weather, ambling pace, beauty in every color imaginable and the freedom to come as you are – and go where you please.
The current show, in the Walter Greer Gallery of the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, at Shelter Cove, is Abstract Impressions – an exhibit of recent paintings by N. Jack Huddle. It continues through July 2.
These are large-scale works in oil that open with a dominant color intended to establish a specific mood. Their freedom of line and composition empowers the viewer to participate with individual and personal interpretations.
Coming up is a schedule that reflects the abundance of local artists we enjoy here on Hilton Head Island and nearby.
