WATCH: 2020’s Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artists of the Year Morgan Kinne reveals award piece


In 2020, Charleston artist Morgan Kinne was chosen to receive CCF’s Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artist of the Year Award. With the accompanying $6,000 grant, she created “True North,” which represents levels of Lowcountry history and culture spanning geography, class, race, growth, and rising waters. The piece is on display now through Jan. 30 at Redux Contemporary Art Center in Charleston from 11a.m.-4 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 11 a.m.-3 p.m. on Fridays.

The Griffith-Reyburn Lowcountry Artist of the Year Award was established at Coastal Community Foundation in 2003 by Mike Griffith and Donna Reyburn to support an artist each year as they create a piece that represents unique aspects of the South Carolina Lowcountry’s lifestyle, culture or environment.
