Southern Observatory is an intimate group of artists drawn together by our passion for the visual arts. We work in a variety of media, including painting, printmaking, ceramics, and mixed media. Southern Observatory members are all women living in the Central Savannah River Area, which covers portions of Georgia and South Carolina. The group is notable for its diversity of cultural identity. In our meetings, we focus on issues confronting the serious artist today: finding exhibitions, career trajectory, life/work conundrums. Bedrock principles are mutual respect and building our artistic relationships. A critical part of our mission is to support the cultural development of our community by exhibiting our art work throughout the region.
