Celebrating Lisa Shimko, 2016 Lowcountry Artist of the Year

Last week, we celebrated our 2016 Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artist of the Year, Lisa Shimko.

Post-Hurricane Matthew, family and friends came out to the opening of Lisa’s abstract show, Lowcountry Water Halos at Redux Contemporary Art Center. Our favorite part of the night: When a little girl named Lily asked the artist to sign her copy of Art Mag.

The award was created in 2003 by Michael Griffith and Donna Reyburn in order to support the creation of a work of visual art that represents an aspect of our Lowcountry’s unique life, culture or environment.

Special thanks to Mike and Donna for creating this award, to Redux for hosting and to Art Mag for featuring this artist in their Fall publication, the Storyteller issue. More thanks to our photographer Kaylin Foard for surprising us with a video of the reception.

Fun was had by all! Take a look at the event photos below:

Lowcountry Water Halos will be on display at Redux Contemporary Art Center through Tuesday, December 6th.
