Watercolor-Comin-InThe Society of Bluffton Artists presents “Watercolor Memories, Here and There,” a collection of paintings by award-winning artist Don Theodore, on display from August 4 – 30, at the SOBA Gallery.


Long-time Lowcountry resident Theodore was born in the old whaling town of New Bedford, Massachusetts. He attended the Swain School of Design, then transferred to the Boston University School of Art where he received his BA in illustration followed by his MA in Education from the BU School of Education. This led Theodore to a teaching career in New York state, while continuing to evolve as a fine artist.

Theodore has studied the watercolor medium under such nationally known artists as Sondra Watercolor-island-treasuresFeckleton, Linda Doll, Tom Lynch, Gerald Brommer (watercolor with collage) and Linda Baker. He has exhibited his work in many juried shows in New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts and South Carolina and won numerous awards including most recently First Place in the Watercolor category of the 20th Annual SOBA Judged Show. Theodore’s attention to detail has made his paintings particularly appealing to his many private collectors.

A reception to meet the artist will be held on Sunday, August 10 from 3 – 5 pm at the gallery on the corner of Church and Calhoun streets in Old Town Bluffton. Call 757-6586 or visit sobagallery.com for more information.
