Art Show on the Edge of America

James Christopher Hill & Kathy Hill, Folly Beach, S.C.
I have frequently featured images of some of my favorite murals - particularly this one on Folly Beach. This evening I drove out to the Edge of America to finally meet the artist James Christopher Hill. What a treat! He had an art show at the Folly Beach Crab Shack.

Check out the vintage Folly Beach print James and wife Kathy are holding above. That is the one I bought. Walking out of the restaurant something looked familiar. The original was painted on the restaurant wall. I walked through my painting, yay!  I had to admit that I already have Mr. Hill's art work on my walls. I had taken some photographs of his murals that I have enlarged and have enjoyed for years. It was good to finally thank him and buy something from him directly.

Now, if I can just get my boss to let him paint a mural on the hospital.....hmmmmm.


  1. He does lovely work, Joan. Excellent portrait of he and his wife, by the way.

  2. Art is just more fun when you know the artist - be it a painter, photographer, or writer.

    I think you are doing great with your new camera!


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
