Daniel-Island-Nocturne-copy‘Lowcounty Oils and Silks,’ an exhibit of works by renowned Charleston fabric artist Mary Edna Fraser, is currently hanging at the USCB Center for the Arts, where it will make an ideal backdrop for the ‘Pat Conroy at 70’ Literary Festival, October 29 – 31.

The artist had this to say about the author:

            “In the early 80’s I lived in New Hope, PA and had taken Pat Conroy’s 1972 book The Water is Wide to reread. His colorful writing helped me stay connected to the South while developing my aerial landscapes. His legacy of books and mentoring others is to be admired. Happy 70th Pat!”

            ‘Lowcountry Oils and Silks’ will be on display through November 4th. For more information visit www.uscbcenterforthearts.com
