Field trips

Field trips are a great opportunity to gather new material, get inspired, and get to know each other. We make new friends and share knowledge and experience. It’s also a chance to invite guests to enjoy a Guild event. Unless otherwise indicated, we meet between at 9:30 or 10 a.m. at the Summerville Parking Garage and carpool. Meeting times are posted in the newsletter and emails for each trip.

Field trips are one of the highlights of membership in the Guild.  Members meet up at wonderful locations to take photographs, sketch, or paint “en plein air.” Sometimes we meet at the Gibbes Museum or other places for gallery tours of a current exhibit.  For 2018-19, the following outings are scheduled:

Monday, January 7 – Charleston Galleries Art Walk
Thursday, February 28 – Charles Towne Landing
Thursday, March 28 – Mepkin Abbey 
Thursday, April 25 – Caw Caw Interpretive Center, Charleston County Parks
Friday, May 10 – Swan Lake near Sumter, SC
Thursday, May 30 – Piccolo Spoleto artists walk, Marion Square 

Guild participants enjoyed a beautiful day photographing and sketching the animals & sights at member Esther Zwemer’s beautiful farm west of Walterboro, SC.
