The Coastal Discovery Museum of Hilton Head Island, SC, located at historic Honey Horn is pleased to announce an evening with West Fraser, book signing and talk featuring his newest book “Painting the Southern Coast: The Art of West Fraser” published by USC Press July 2016, on Oct. 6, 2016, from 5:30-7pm.
“Painting the Southern Coast: The Art of West Fraser” is a stunning collection of the works of West Fraser, one of the nation’s most respected painters of representational art. A mastery of his medium and the scope of work ensure his place in Southern art history. A true son of the lowcountry, Fraser has dedicated much of his career to capturing the lush, primordial beauty of the Southeast’s coastal regions that have been altered by man and time. The 260 works in this book are representative of the sketches, studies, and finished paintings he has generated over his nearly forty-year career, works that depict coastal locales from Winyah Bay, South Carolina, to St. Augustine, Florida, and include Charleston, Bluffton, Hilton Head, Savannah, and the islands of the Lowcountry through the Golden Isles of Georgia. The beauty and spirit of coastal landscapes and waterways captured and celebrated in art. Books are available for purchase for $49.99.
The Coastal Discovery Museum is located on the historic Honey Horn property which features some of the oldest structures on Hilton Head. The museum moved to this location in 2007 and became a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2015.
