Lure of the Lowcountry


This exhibition features the mixed-media photographs of artist John Folsom (American, b. 1967). Selected from his series entitled Lure of the Lowcountry, the photographs on view depict several locations in the region, including Palmetto Bluff and Edisto Island, both in South Carolina, along with Cumberland Island, Georgia. To explore the art-historical precedents of Folsomís work, this exhibition pairs his photographs with early Lowcountry landscapes from the Gibbes collection, including paintings by Thomas Coram and Charles Fraser.

Sponsored by The Charleston Art & Antiques Forum and Charleston Gateway magazine.
