Julie Jones at Art League Gallery

Native Hilton Head Islander Julie Jones will be exhibiting her work in Come Sea Me, an exhibit of oil and acrylic paintings at Art League this October.

Jones is well-known for her exuberant and colorful paintings of Lowcountry wildlife and scenery, most notably her expressionistic depictions of oysters. Her work has been featured in Local Life magazine, and she placed first in Society of Bluffton Artists’ 2019 annual juried show. In 2017, she was named Artist of the Year by the Greater Bluffton Chamber of Commerce.

“Jones’ work is iconic of the Lowcountry,” says Kristen McIntosh, Art League

General Manager. “It celebrates our unique environment in a bold, playful way. We’re excited to showcase such a talented local from our own backyard.”

Come Sea Me runs October 5-30 at Art League Gallery, with an opening reception on October 6, 5-7pm. Jones will hold two Artist Talks on October 9 and October 20 at 11am. Please RSVP for the reception and talks at gallery@artleaguehhi.org to prevent overcrowding.

Art League Gallery is located mid-island inside Arts Center of Coastal Carolina, 14 Shelter Cove Lane, Hilton Head Island, 843-681-5060.
