SOBA Featured Artist of the Month

The SOBA Gallery is happy to once again host as our “Featured Artist of the Month”, Edith Wood. Her new show is called, “Just Birds”. Edith works patiently for the precise moment to capture the birds while they are at their best in the wild. To do this a photographer must be practiced in the art of snapping the camera while the bird is in an artists’ composition, and also is in natural light and showing the characteristics of each species of bird.

Where Nature Meets Art

Offered by the Artists of Spring Island, this exhibition will provide a glimpse into the beauty of one of our neighboring islands.  Spring Island’s focus upon preservation and environmental conservation are complementary to the Coastal Discovery Museum’s recently adopted mission to “inspire people to care for the Lowcountry.”  Visit the museum to see the works from some Spring Island artists who have gained an appreciation for our area’s culture, heritage, and environment.
