Beacham Show is hung!

We've started  preparations for this Saturday's champagne reception for Helen K. Beacham's latest collection of watercolors (April 30, 5-8pm).  It's amazing how something as simple as listening to a classic story on tape can influence an artist's painting mood and style.  Helen Beacham listed to "The Good Earth" by Pearl S. Buck, and the results are magical.

Lowcountry landscapes feel Oriental in style...Charleston architecture floats in front of our eyes...flowers dance in the foggy atmosphere.  The show is entitled "The Essence of Vapor" and will hang through the month of May.
