Maura Kenny: "Out of Hobcaw"
The Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery presents “Out of Hobcaw,” an exhibition of watercolor and mixed media paintings by artist and Coastal Carolina University painting Professor Maura Kenny. Works featured explore the people, landscape, conservation, and preservation occurring within Hobcaw Barony.
Hobcaw, now the Belle W. Baruch Foundation, is a 17,500-acre wildlife refuge and former rice plantation located along the Atlantic Ocean near Georgetown, South Carolina. It’s diversity of eco systems and people who research, preserve and conserve its flora, fauna and marine life thrive in Maura’s multi-layered symbiotic paintings that preserve this living treasure for the people of South Carolina.
“My experience on Hobcaw Barony this past spring has re-awakened my appreciation for preservation and sustainability at a time when development here on the southeast coast of South Carolina is increasingly alarming.” Kenny’s works emphasize the importance of preserving the legacy and cultural relevance of this area.
“Out of Hobcaw” will be on display in the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery March 10th through April 4th, 2014 with an opening reception held on March 20th beginning at 4:30 and continuing through 6:30pm.
