Join us at the beautiful Moreland Village in Palmetto Bluff for an evening of art, food, drinks and music. On Friday, April 19th from 5-8pm, Moreland Outfitters will be highlighting local artists at their Easter Weekend Social. Three distinct artists will be featured at the event – Author Roger Pinckney, Handblown Glass Artist Jon Poirier and Painter Jessie Peterson Tarazi. Roger will be signing books and telling stories at the event. Jessie & Jon will be displaying, discussing and selling their work. Moreland Village offers a unique Palmetto Bluff setting directly on the May River. Centrally located in the village, Moreland Outfitters is both a beautiful art gallery and fly fishing outfitter, all rolled into one creative space. Guests can enjoy books by local authors as well as exclusive Palmetto Conservancy logoed items. This is your invitation to get to know what sets Moreland Village and Moreland Outfitters apart. The Moreland Artists Showcase and Easter Social is one of a series of events put on by Outside Brands in 2019 to celebrate their 40th year of local business.

About the Artists:

Author Roger Pinckney is a descendant of pirates and Confederates. Two of his ancestors signed the Constitution and served the early Republic with distinction. Pinckney is an award-winning author of fourteen books about the Lowcountry, including Reefer Moon and Little Glory, optioned for film. He lives on Daufuskie Island, remote, beautiful and sparsely settled, where he writes and works to preserve land and culture.

Handblown Glass Artist, Jon Poirier, is committed to keeping the tradition of glasswork alive. For over 15 years, his shop in Savannah has provided handblown functional pieces of art to much success. He uses heat, breath and talent to turn molten glass into beautiful, functional works of art. Jon creates his art just like they did 2000 years ago, being careful to preserve long held techniques. International colleagues have crossed the ocean to learn his craft from the master himself.

Beyond her eight paintings that can be found in the main hotel at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff, the locally raised Artist, Jessie Peterson Tarazi, created Nassau & Fulton: an inspired line of Greeting Cards. She is currently in residence up north in the Big Apple where she has lived, worked and trained as an Artist for the majority of her career, however the Lowcountry and Islands that she grew up on remain her muse in both her painting career and now her stationary Line. Nassau & Fulton’s take on the Lowcountry is fun, colorful and a whimsical embodiment of what we’ve all come to admire about who the local environment inspires us to appreciate, no matter where you or they are.
