Benches,Books & More!
Art League of Hilton Head and The Literacy Center have teamed up in a collaborative effort entitled Benches, Books & More! This week-long exhibition features hand-painted furniture by locally well-known artists inspired by, and in partnership with, Lowcountry authors. This collaborative fundraiser is a first of its kind here on Hilton Head. The illustrations and themes of popular books by ten Lowcountry authors will be hand-painted by local artists on adult benches and children's furniture such as; chairs, tables, toy boxes and step stools. Notable artists include; Addison Palmer, Dennis Lake, Amos Hummell, Andrea Studenc and Stella-Lee Anderson. .
“Both organizations have a mission to enrich Hilton Head and it’s great to work together to support our community. Stop by and place a bid. You will not only have a chance to win a one-of-a-kind work of art you can hand down for generations, but you will be supporting two community organizations.” states Mary Ann Hanna, Art League Board Member.
You must see this exhibition of two local organizations working together to enhance our community. Benches, Books & More! will be on exhibition at Art League Gallery, May 28 - June 1, 2018. A Gala event will be held on Friday, June 1, from 6-9pm.
