Internationally acclaimed Gullah-inspired artist Jonathan Green, Chairman of the Lowcountry Rice Culture Project and Visual Designer of the 2016 Spoleto production of “Porgy and Bess,” will share his knowledge of the Gullah culture and how it is inexplicably woven into life in the Lowcountry.  Joining Jonathan for the program will be Thomasena Stokes-Marshall, founder of the annual Sweetgrass Cultural Arts Festival and supporter of the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor.

The program will be held from 7 p.m. to 8:30 pm and will feature hors d’oeuvres (menu coming soon!), beverages, prize drawings, and live musical entertainment by The Plantation Singers and Black Tie Music Academy. Reception guests will be the first to have an opportunity to purchase a signed or unsigned limited edition print of Jonathan’s Rice Plantation, created especially for this occasion and one of only a select few in his acclaimed Rice Harvest series to be offered as a poster print.
