The Art League of Hilton Head recently announced the winners of its inaugural 2011 Biennale National Juried Art Exhibition.
Artwork was judged by award-winning watercolorist Linda Baker. The exhibition features 95 works selected from 600 entries from 30 states. Baker said she was looking for a solid composition or "bone structure" of a piece, the color values and a creative surprise to captivate the viewer's eye.
The exhibition in the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina's Walter Greer Gallery runs through May 29. Gallery hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday; 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday; noon to 4 p.m. Sunday; and before performances at the arts center. Details: 843-681-5060, www.artleaguehhi.org
