Rice: Paintings by Jonathan Green - Myrtle Beach Musuem of Art - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina - November 29, 2015 - January 7, 2015

South Carolina artist Jonathan Green presents us with a collection of drawings and paintings representative of the Lowcountry rice culture. The works were created as a proud example of America's African descendants, whose agricultural knowledge and skill propelled South Carolina's colonial plantation economy into one dominantly sustained by rice production. With bright, bold colors and patterns, sweeping landscapes, billowing clothing and joyful figures toiling in Lowcountry rice fields, Green's perspective of the historical past poses the question: "What if African people came here like everyone else - unchained, unenslaved?" Rice will bring to life the pride Green feels for his Gullah ancestors, who despite the tough work and often perilous conditions of tideland rice cultivation, survived, thrived and created the rich and vibrant Gullah culture unique to our coast.
