Exhibits at Penn Center, ARTworks to celebrate Lowcountry folk artist Sam Doyle

Sam Doyle died in 1985. His paintings are now in museums and prominent collections. Some local people are lucky to have memories of the folk artist and his St. Helena Out Door Art Gallery, and the 1982 exhibition that established his reputation: Black Folk Art in America: 1930-1980 at the Corcoran Museum of Art in Washington D.C. But, here in Beaufort this fall -- in the same community where Doyle was born in 1906 and derived his inspirations -- the rest of us will be able to behold his work in person, first at ARTworks and then at Penn Center.
