Gullah Basket by Amiri Farris


Four Corners Gallery in Bluffton will feature works that focus on the Lowcountry and Gullah culture by artists Doug Corkern, Amiri Farris and Judy Mooney through Feb. 14.

Corkern was raised in Georgetown, S.C., and moved to Hilton Head Island in the 1960s. He practiced architecture for 40 years, and since then has been capturing Lowcountry scenes with drawings and watercolors.

Farris' work features images of the Gullah culture in vivid colors and layered textures, often with concealed or hidden symbols.

Mooney is showing a collection of bronze and clay sculptures that reflect the strength of the Gullah people, who practice centuries-old traditions today.

There will be a free reception from 4 to 7 p.m. Jan. 17 at the gallery, 1263 May River Road, Bluffton. Details: 843-757-8185,
