The Coastal Discovery Museum at historic Honey Horn is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibit by the Art Quilters of the Lowcountry, titled “Imagine,” in the Main Gallery, from July 16 -October 6. Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend the opening reception on Thursday, July 18, from 5 to 7 pm.

“Imagine” is an immersive art exhibit that explores the power of imagination. The award-winning fiber artists and art quilters fuse fabric and thread to delve into the transformative and introspective nature of imagining one’s own world. By fostering a space for creativity and self-reflection, “Imagine” aims to inspire attendees to reimagine the world around them.

“We are delighted to once again showcase the works of these talented artists and invite everyone to experience this unique art form,” said Elizabeth Greenberg, Director of Exhibitions, at the Coastal Discovery Museum.

Gallery hours are Mondays – Saturdays, 9 am – 4:30 pm, and Sundays, 11 am – 3 pm.
