Southern Observatory

Main Gallery

Southern Observatory is an intimate group of artists drawn together by a passion for the visual arts.   They work in a variety of media, including painting, printmaking, ceramics, and mixed media.  Southern Observatory members are all women living in the Central Savannah River Area, which covers portions of Georgia and South Carolina.  In their meetings, they focus on issues confronting the serious artist today: finding exhibitions, career trajectory, life/work conundrums.  Bedrock principles are mutual respect and building their artistic relationships.  A critical part of their mission is to support the cultural development of their community by exhibiting art work throughout the region.
