Join us for the release of Gullah Spirit: The Art of Jonathan Green at the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston, SC. Enjoy cocktails, meet artist Jonathan Green and get a signed copy of his book (included with ticket purchase).

Jonathan Green is best known for his vibrant depictions of Gullah culture and life. For decades, his vividly colored paintings and prints have captured and preserved the daily rituals and Gullah traditions of his childhood in the Lowcountry marshes of South Carolina.

While Green's art continues to capture the same energy, color, and deep respect for his ancestors, his techniques have evolved to feature bolder brush strokes and a use of depth and texture, all guided by his maturing artistic vision that is more about experiencing freedom and contentment through his art. This vision is reflected in the 180 new paintings featured in Gullah Spirit. His open and inviting images beckon the world to not only see this vanishing culture but also to embrace its truth and enduring spirit.

Jonathan Green is an award-winning artist and among the most recognized in the American South with works held in numerous permanent museum collections.

Tickets: $65 (includes a signed copy of Gullah Spirit)
