Bright Blue Weather by June Sullivan
“O suns and skies and clouds of June and flowers of June together, ye cannot rival for one hour October’s bright blue weather.” - Helen Hunt Jackson
Photographer June Sullivan was inspired by the beauty of autumn and poetry in her latest photography show “Bright Blue Weather” featured at Art Central Gallery through October. June says, “When I was in the fifth grade, I was required to memorize and recite 'October’s Bright Blue Weather' by American poet and novelist Helen Hunt Jackson. Through the years, this poem continued to resonate with me and is one of my earliest memories of my love of the fall season. Color and light are important factors for a photographer and the fall season is an excellent time to capitalize on those two elements. From the beautiful leaves and berries of the pyracantha in my photo, ‘Autumn Comes Calling’ to a picturesque courtyard in ‘Autumn in Charleston’; my photographs feature the colorful palette of low-country South Carolina this time of year”.
Visit Art Central Gallery located at 130 Central Avenue, Summerville, SC through October 2018 and find your own autumn inspiration! Meet the artist at a gallery reception on Third Thursday, October 18, 2018 from 5-8pm.
