The Art of Lisa Gilyard-Rivers: A Gullah Homecoming Exhibit at Penn Center

Art is one of my favorite things to explore and I take the opportunity any chance I get. One of the newest artists who caught my eye was Beaufort County native, Lisa Gilyard-Rivers. When I found out about her new exhibit at the Penn Center, I knew I had to make a trip. The exhibit, name, A Gullah Homecoming was absolutely breathtaking and I suggest anyone to make the trip to Saint Helena Island and the Penn Center to see it.

Exhibition Runs: Now through July 31st. For more information call (843) 838-8554 or info@penncenter.com

Gullah culture is all about the land and this depiction of the fisherman has a special place in my heart as my great-grandfather was a longshoreman.
