Beaufort artists share what's on their bookshelves -- electronic or otherwise

Inside Salt Gallery, which is on Bay Street in Beaufort, a swing hangs from the 30-foot ceiling. The swing is as grand as a sultana's tent, a place to lounge with an illustrated copy of "A Thousand and One Arabian Nights," a seat for taking in the old Saltus building, all the original art, and to overhear Hank Herring tinker in his studio in the back. From this swaying perch, I noticed the work of Jerry Brem, a painter who lives on Lady's Island. He had depicted shelves of books -- the comforting and customary spines, thick page counts, cover-colors and odd angles and heights.
