The Gibbes recently opened a stunning new photography exhibition entitled Daufuskie Island: Photographs by Jeanne Moutoussamy-Ashe.  These compelling photographs document life on the remote South Carolina Sea Island during the late 1970s and early 1980s, a way of life that has now faded from existence.  Moutoussamy-Ashe’s intimate portraits depict men and women at work, children at play, families celebrating weddings, and the community gathering for a funeral.

Don’t miss the opportunity to meet Moutoussamy-Ashe on November 18 when she will deliver an artist talk during the Gibbes Museum’s Women in Art lecture series.  A reception and book signing will follow the lecture.  Click here for more information and to order tickets.
