"Sea Oats Sentinal" by Shirley Good Bacher


The Society of Bluffton Artists presents "Everyday Moments," a collection of original pastel and oil paintings by local artist Shirley Good Bacher. The show will be on display from Feb. 3 through March 1.

Bacher has been an artist since her school years, but put art aside for 25 years to teach tennis and own a tennis club. She works primarily in a style she calls "contemporary representational impressionism," which she said is "not meant to be a fancy term, just descriptive." She enjoys painting landscapes, South Carolina gardens and golf courses, children at play or on the beach, and urbanscapes, especially of Times Square and New Orleans. She generally begins her paintings "en plein air," then takes some photos and finishes in her studio.

A reception will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. Feb. 9 at the gallery, located at the corner of Church and Calhoun streets in Bluffton. Details: 843-757-6586 or
