Chris Kirk is a retired CPA who has resided on St. Helena Island for the past decade. As an outlet for his creative side, Chris utilizes the other side of his brain by incorporating his enthusiastic hobby of photography, his avid passion for the Lowcountry, and the abundant beauty of the local ecology to produce Lowcountry landscape, nature, wildlife, and coastal photos. His photographs are presented in both canvas and high-quality photo paper formats, with a total of over 25 pieces displayed in this exhibit and available for sale.

Chris’ ecology-oriented photography has been featured in many local, regional, and statewide publications over the past eight years. Chris has also been invited to display his work in a number of curated and juried art shows in both Beaufort and Colleton counties. In 2011 Chris received the distinction of winning the “Photography-Best in Show” award at the Beaufort citywide art show.

The USCB Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort, SC. There are two galleries housed at the Center for the Arts that are open to the public daily — the Main Gallery and the Lobby Gallery. Admission is free; gallery hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday and the galleries are also open during all USCB Center for the Arts events.
