• Pavement & Sand Exhibit at BAA:
Ordinary images of everyday life cause Beaufort Art Association’s featured artist Patricia Walsh to grab her brush, oils and canvas and start painting. Simple reflections on wet sand, backlit sunlight highlighting a person crossing the street, children playing at the beach, all fill Patricia with delight. Her desire to tell these imagined stories in visual form led her to Boston University’s School of Fine Arts in the early 1970s. Following completion of a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in painting, she remained involved in creative pursuits working as a designer and commercial artist until she began a career in law enforcement. In 2012, Patricia moved from New England to South Carolina and currently resides on St. Helena Island. The exhibit of Patricia Walsh’s art begins Monday, Sept. 15 and continues through October 25. There will be an opening reception at the BAA gallery on Bay Street Friday, Sept. 19.
