MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (September 4, 2015) - Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page and the Culture, Arts & Pride Commission recently welcomed returning artist Beth Melton-Seabrook to exhibit in the Mayor’s Office on a two-month revolving basis. Her piece “Contemplation” is painted on an old window and features a Great Blue Heron. Beth enjoys combining unexpected ordinary objects with the natural beauty of the Lowcountry.
“It is a pleasure to welcome returning artist Beth Melton-Seabrook to the Mayor’s Office,” said Mayor Page. “I am grateful to CAP and our local talent for displaying Lowcountry art. This program promotes an awareness of local artists and fosters community pride, as well as encourages the interaction of the artist community, local businesses and residents. I invite Mount Pleasant artists to submit their art for consideration.”
“It is an honor to be exhibited in the Mayor’s Office and I am grateful for the opportunity,” said Melton-Seabrook. “My husband and I collect salvaged windows and recycled materials found in nature. Once the exhibit concludes, I would like for this piece to ‘spread its wings’ at art festivals and shows along the east coast. Currently you can find my work at Southern Accent Interiors.”
