Black Southern Belles
South Carolina native and internationally acclaimed Gullah artist, speaker and Pan African Cultural Heritage Institute Fellow, Sonja Griffin Evans, displays her works in Brookgreen’s Wall Lowcountry Center Auditorium through March 31. Her work encapsulates the lifestyle of African Americans after the Civil War and illuminates the beauty of Gullah culture. She is a prolific mixed-media artist who incorporates items such as tin, wood and other materials while using vibrant colors on canvas indicative of traditional Gullah style. Each of her pieces tells an alluring story and creates a reflection of the deep spirituality of people of African descent.
