Billy Wilkie on display at USCB Center for Arts

The University of South Carolina Beaufort Center for the Arts in Historic Beaufort is presenting “The Escape Collection,” a new exhibit by local artist Billy Wilkie, on display from April 1 through May 31.

Billy’s work highlights his passion for Lowcountry landscapes, wildlife and birds.

Billy studied under master watercolorist Zoltan Szabo wherein he refined his ideas and formed his own very unique style. He is especially known for his “Crow” series. These bird paintings will fill you with joy as you see his crows — with their big attitude and work boots, taking command of the canvas.

If you love living in the Lowcountry, you will not want to miss this exhibit. Join Billy for the opening reception from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on Friday, April 11 at USCB Center for the Arts, 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort.

Broad River Timber, LLC, and The Kitchen will co-sponsor the reception and the exhibit.
