Capturing the Magic of the Lowcountry
August 6 - 31, 2021
Mary Martin Gallery, 103 Broad St, Charleston SC 29401

Capturing the Magic of the Lowcountry features the work of Charleston artist William R. Bebee, showcasing historic Charleston architecture and Lowcountry birds. All are welcome to the August 6 opening from 5-8pm at Mary Martin Gallery on Broad Street where the artist will be in attendance.

“Everywhere I look in Charleston I see a painting!” Beebe muses. “I’m drawn to the charming, colorful, historic architecture. The abundant birdlife throughout the Lowcountry also captivates me. The two genres are my inspiration and I’m excited about sharing my work in the upcoming show!”

Beebe presents his images of Charleston using non-traditional compositions and creates a fresh look of this widely painted city. “Realism with a touch of Impessionism” is how he describes his work.
