Reminder: SINHG Evening Program: Indigo and the Lowcountry Sep 14

The Seabrook Island Natural History Group (SINHG) launches its fall series of Evening Programs with an exploration of indigo’s history and cultivation on Johns Island and the revival of interest in growing and processing the plant for contemporary uses. The program will be offered on Thursday evening, September 14 at 7:00 pm and will be presented by Lee Ann Bain, a well-known Charleston tour guide and historian of Lowcountry culture.

As a member of the Daniel Island Historical Society, Bain has uncovered and documented indigo processing sites on what were once two contiguous colonial era plantations on the island. Last year, Smithsonian Magazine detailed the renewed interest in the plant on Johns Island, where several indigo farms are now in operation, providing the deep blue dye for use in clothing and accessories.

SINHG Evening Programs at The Lake House will continue later in the fall with the examination of Charleston architecture in October and the exploration of the history of Seabrook Island in November. Evening Programs are open to all Seabrook Island residents and guests, with a $5 admission charge for non-SINHG members. To register, visit SINHG Events.

SIAG Hosts September Demo Artist Heather McQueen Jones

Seabrook Island Artist Guild (SIAG) welcomes Heather McQueen Jones
Tuesday, September 19, 2023
1:30-4:00 pm
The Lake House
Live Oak Hall

Art Therapy: Painting Water and Seascapes

For Heather McQueen Jones, art started as therapy when she was caring for her young children. It quickly grew into a passion and gradually Heather moved further from her advertising career to focus on her art.

 In Heather’s own words, “Sketching and painting is cathartic. Learning something new every day is energizing. Challenging myself to take art to the next level and change careers has been transformative.”

Heather paints in oil, plein air and from her studio on Daniel Island; she paints what she loves to see, what is around her either near her home or while vacationing. She does commissioned work and donates paintings for Lowcountry charities.

On September 19, Heather will demonstrate the method she uses to share the progress of her painting and posting to social media. To view Heather’s beautiful art, please visit her website Instagram @HeartPalette and http://www.macqueenjones.com.

Today, Mary enjoys combining her love of the portrait and figure with painting Plein Air landscapes. She travels and paints Plein Air Paint-outs all over the United States.  Her work is documented on her website, https://MaryHoffmanFineArt.com.
