September 1-29: Below the Surface, an exhibit of paintings by Judy Blahut will be on display at the Art League Gallery inside the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Mon.-Sat. from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., on Sun. 12-4 p.m. and 90 minutes before every Arts Center performance. This collection of acrylic and charcoal paintings is Blahut’s colorful interpretation of underwater environments, balanced between realism and fractured, playful abstraction. These fantastical “waterscapes” are made of sinuous and lyrical forms bathed in translucent light. Blahut will hold a demo of her work on Thursday, Sept. 7 at 11 a.m. The exhibit, reception, and demo are all free and open to the public. This state-of -the-art gallery provides the finest exhibit space with high tourist and community visibility. 14 Shelter Cove Ln. For more information, visit www.artleaguehhi.org.
