The Coastal Discovery Museum at historic Honey Horn is pleased to present a selection of images from the Camera Club of Hilton Head Island, in the Main Gallery, from May 13 to July 7. Admission is free. The public is invited to attend the opening reception, on May 14, from 5 pm – 7 pm.

The theme is “Field Trip,” showcasing images of natural and historic sites throughout the region. A highlight of the exhibit will be photographs by student winners of the Kurtzberg Memorial Awards. Named after Dr. Larry Kurtzberg, a champion of youth photography and the club’s founder and first president, these awards recognize exceptional students enrolled in Hilton Head Island High School’s visual arts photography courses.

As part of the museum’s ongoing efforts to support local arts groups, the museum is also hosting four gallery talks by the Camera Club, at 2 pm, on May 16, May 29, June 12, and June 22. The talks are free and open to the public.
