"Waterscapes" by artist Mary Ann Bridgman

Mary Ann Bridgman’s watercolor show & sale, “Waterscapes,” is featured for the month of April at Art Central Gallery. A waterscape is a landscape scene with a prominent water feature included.
The artist says, “Living in the South Carolina LowCountry, we are blessed to have many natural wonders available to us. A lot of these include water.” Mary Ann learned at a young age that she absolutely loves being near water. Whether it is ocean, river, pond or waterfall, it gives her great pleasure.
What Mary Ann knows instinctively, science supports with data: viewing water provides many benefits. Researchers have determined that being near water has definite calming effects on people. Watching ocean waves is inspiring and lowers stress levels. Even looking at paintings of water scenes can provide these benefits.
Seek out some calming benefits of water for yourself! Mary Ann Bridgman’s exhibit will be available at Art Central Gallery through the end of April, with a reception honoring the artist on Third Thursday, April 18, 2019, 5pm-8pm. For more information about the artist visit the art Central Gallery website:

Bridgman’s “Picnic Spot on the Edisto” is a reminder of wonderful times
spent enjoying the beautiful natural surroundings and serenity of our Edisto River. 

. In Mary Ann Bridgman’s watercolor painting, “Headin’ Out”, the ocean is fairly peaceful and cool looking. The artist enjoyed seeing the hopeful gulls following the shrimp boat in anticipation of special treats.
