New Art

If you've been in the library lately you may have noticed our recent exhibit from Seacoast Artist Guild. We've been fortunate enough to host a second large exhibit from an all-new set of artists.

To see some selections from the exhibit, visit our Facebook photos or Flickr page.

Some of our exhibiting artists include:
  • Bonnie Berchielli -- "Bonnie Berchielli is an award-winning photographer with the Seacoast Artist Guild. She grew up in northern New Jersey and lived in Rockland County, New York, before settling seven years ago in Murrells Inlet. Photography is a special hobby for Bonnie and she feels honored to present her work here at the Socastee Library alongside so many accomplished artists and photographers."
  • Deborah Broad -- "Deborah Broad was born in Johnstown, Pennsylvania. She studied fine art at the New York Phoenix School of Design and the Art League School in Alexandria, Virginia. She is represented in corporate and private collections worldwide. Broad was the recipient of the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Award from the Pastel Society of America and her contributions have been recognized by The Artist Magazine."
  • Diana Cochran Johnson -- "Diana Cochran Johnson has been taking photos since she was about twelve years old. Though her education veered into what she 'should' take instead of what she wanted...eventually passion won out. Though classically trained in B/W photography and darkroom techniques, she now feels the digital revolution makes it possible to take photography to degrees only dreamed of before."
  • Yvonne Smoak Knight -- "Yvonne Smoak Knight grew up in the small town of St. Matthews, SC. She graduated from the University of South Carolina and is retired from the State of South Carolina. Since first signing up for an oil painting class in 2002, she has studied under numerous artists including Gloria Perkins, William McCullough, Betsy McDonald, and Mary Manos. Her award-winning art includes First Prize in advanced oils and her paintings have been displayed at Applewood, Mercy Hospice, Belin United Methodist Church, Calhoun County Museum, and the Orangeburg County Fair. She is a charter member of the Seacoast Artist Guild."
