Camp Conroy Exhibit at Beaufort Art Association through July 14

‘Sunset Contrast’ by Ava Wilson, age 12

Our Beaufort students are amazing! Beaufort Art Association Gallery is excited to present an exhibit of selected artwork and writing from the 2024 Camp Conroy, an annual program of the nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center.

This is the 7th year that Camp Conroy has challenged students, ages 9 to 14, to have fun and create during two weeks of their

summer break. Students work both independently and collaboratively as they research, write, illustrate, edit, and design pages for a book they publish together. This year’s theme was time travel, which resulted in a nearly 90-page anthology of student work titled “Timeless Treasures,” exploring notions of time from student perspectives. The camp’s instructors were author and artist Lisa Anne Mckibben, poet Miho Kinnas, Lady’s Island Elementary School third-grade teacher Maddy Roth, and Conroy Center executive director Jonathan Haupt.

Alex Bosley, an intern at Beaufort Art Association and one of six Camp Conroy counselors this summer, has curated “Timeless Treasures” from the art created by the talented students of Camp Conroy. The exhibit will be freely on display at the Beaufort Art Association Gallery (913 Bay St.) from Tuesday, July 2 through Sunday, July 14. A reception will be held during First Friday celebrations on July 5.  The public is invited to visit, to celebrate these creative students, and to encourage and promote artists of all ages in Beaufort.
