Tyrone Geter’s work finds its foundation in the legacy of his mother, who grew up in the early 1900s in an environment of discrimination, poverty and illiteracy. His works in charcoal, mixed media and pastels refer to the trials of youth and the struggle of the aged, reflecting themes of compassion, hope, justice and perseverance. Geter was born in Anniston, Ala., and earned his MFA from Ohio University in 1978. For seven years he lived in Zaria, Nigeria, creating art and learning the culture of the nomadic Fulani people. He taught at the University of Akron and recently retired as an associate professor of art at Benedict College in Columbia, S.C. GALLERY HOURS: 9 A.M. TO 5 P.M.

Jeff’s work interprets this ancient art using modern methods. His stereographic depictions of mythical Thai scenes are 3D rendered & printed and shadows are cast when light is carefully harnessed within the 3D printed globe. Jeff Case, an associate professor at Coastal Carolina University is best known for his work specializing in cutting edge technology such as rapid prototyping, 3D scanning and printing. He lived in Thailand from 1998-2000 and has returned on several occasions as a researcher and as a professor, leading students in study abroad programs for Coastal Carolina University.

If you weren't able to join us in July for the opening of the "Celebrating Pawleys Island" show and booksigning with Lee Brockington and Steve Roberts, it's not too late to see it! The exhibit of art created by each of our 24 participating gallery artists truly captures the charm and nostalgia of our barrier island. Hope you will take some time during the month of August to pop in and see this incredibly diverse and unique gathering of original art hanging through Labor Day Weekend.
