Looking for great art for sale by some amazing local artists? You’re invited to enjoy an afternoon of arts and landscape in the beautiful barn in Widgeon Point on Lemon Island as the Open Land Trust hosts the second annual “Arts-in-the-Barn” Art Show and Sale on Sunday, Nov. 4, from 2 to 5 p.m.
Set amidst the splendor of Widgeon Point Preserve —one of the most beautiful destinations in Beaufort County — will be art for sale by some of our region’s best local artists. Art and artists from Four Corners Gallery along with the Plein Air Society will be on site.
Lemon Island is the only undeveloped sea island in the Port Royal Sound that is accessible by a public highway. It offers the possibility of limited public access for bird watching and passive recreation. It was purchased to help preserve the vistas and protect the water quality in the shallow estuarine systems surrounding the property, as well as to provide important roosting and nesting habitat for a wide-variety of permanent and transitory birds.
Widgeon Point on Lemon Island is jointly owned by the Beaufort Open Land Trust and Beaufort County and plays an important role for the preservation of the wood stork rookery that surrounds the brackish pond visible from S.C. 170 and which forms the eastern edge of the property.
There will also be several paintings up for auction as well. There will be live music and light refreshments will be served. This event is FREE and open to all. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork at this event will be donated to the Open Land Trust.
