Non-traditional exhibit featured on Hilton Head Island

Eight artists featured through Aug. 24

A new exhibit from the Art League of Hilton Head is now open, featuring watercolors, pastels, ceramics, and oil paintings.

Thanks to Transcendence, Lowcountry arts patrons are being introduced to eight artists from Advanced Artists from Allendale. Those artists? All eight are inmates at Allendale Correctional Institution.

The works include subject matter such as wildlife, seascapes and landscapes, along with 3D ceramic pieces. Visitors will see oil paintings among the pastels and pen and ink drawings. Clay artists have created some of their best work for this show, according to the Art League of Hilton Head.

WJCL 22 has a story on the exhibit, and you can read more from Art League of HIlton Head here.
