Lowcountry Thru the Lens

Author: Natalie Hefter

For the second year in a row, the Coastal Discovery Museum is hosting an exhibit curated by the Camera Club of Hilton Head Island. Over 100 images will be exhibited from February 16-April 16. Many of these photographs will be available for sale along with matted images and note cards in the gift shop at the museum.

The Camera Club of Hilton Head Island was founded in 1988 and has continued to grow over the years, boasting more than 150 members today. Members travel throughout the area (and the world!) to capture beautiful images of landscapes, people, historic sites and nature’s creatures. If you take the time to attend one of their weekly presentations during the exhibit, you’ll clearly see the passion that these club members have for photography.

“The club is excited about having another opportunity to showcase the members’ work. Last year the programs were well attended, and we’re hoping for the same this year,” said Camera Club President, Jim Newman.

“The Camera Club’s members have truly captured the Low Country’s beauty in their images,” said Michael Marks, President and CEO of the Coastal Discovery Museum.

In addition to the exhibit, a series of half-hour “Gallery Talks” on various aspects of photography will be offered each Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Jarvis Room. The talks are presented by members of the Camera Club and are free and open to the public. No reservations are required.

Scheduled dates and subjects are:

February 24: “Know Your Camera”
March 3: “Composition”
March 10: “Lighting”
March 17: “People, Places & Things”
March 24: “What Do I Do Now?”
March 31: “Printing”

The exhibition will be held in the Jarvis Room of the Coastal Discovery Museum at 100 William Hilton Parkway, from 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Sunday. Don’t miss this opportunity to see the photographs taken by these extremely talented members of our community. For additional information, call 689-6767.
