Neema Fine Art Gallery | Growing Up Gullah
This Friday, Neema Fine Art Gallery presents Part I of Growing Up Gullah: The Artistry of Dana Coleman. A Mt. Pleasant native, Coleman’s images depict moments in ordinary life — the kinds of moments that make Charleston what it is. You’ll see images of Coleman’s grandmother feeding chickens, his uncle shucking oysters, and his aunt sewing sweetgrass baskets.
Fri. Feb. 7, 5:30-8:30 p.m. Free to attend. Neema Fire Art Gallery, 3 Broad St. Suite 100. Downtown. neemagallery.com
