SS95: Pat Sherwood

Artist Pat Sherwood describes memories from childhood in her painting, Carolina Lemon Grass, in the exhibition, Time and Place.

Carolina Lemon Grass, Oil on canvas, 36" x 36".

Comments by Pat Sherwood:
I was born in Columbia, South Carolina. My family still lives around Columbia and Charleston, South Carolina. Every summer of my life I have returned to Pawley’s Island Beach (near Myrtle Beach) to vacation.  This painting is about the feeling of being there in what is called “the low country."  The women weave these wonderful baskets with sweet grass (it actually tastes sweet!) which they grow and cut from ditches in their yards.  An ocean breeze and sweet grass under your feet! Nothing could be finer!
