Thanksgiving in the Lowcountry

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year. I get to relax, spend time with family, watch football, and eat until I can’t eat anymore. I may be small, but trust me, I can put away some food. Even as I overindulge at the dinner table, I always try to keep in mind the real purpose of the holiday: to reflect and give thanks.

Living in the Lowcountry, I have little trouble finding reasons to give thanks. All I have to do is look out the window. The Lowcountry landscape is beautiful, inspiring, and ever-changing. It is no wonder that artists flock to the region. And the Gibbes collection is full of artwork that attests to the beauty of our surroundings. In honor of Thanksgiving, I have selected a few of my favorite Lowcountry scenes from the museum collection—a visual feast as you prepare for your family’s feast. Happy Thanksgiving!
