Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, Feature Works by Sandi Blood

The Seacoast Artists Guild in Myrtle Beach, SC, will present an exhibit of works by award-winning photographer/artist Sandi Blood, on view in the Seacoast Artists Gallery at The Market Common, from Dec. 1 - 30, 2013. A reception will be held on Dec. 21, from 1-4pm.

Blood, a native of Massachusetts, moved to Murrells Inlet in the Fall of 2007, when her husband Ken retired. She discovered endless photo opportunities in her new environment; wading birds, beautiful flowers and one of a kind sunrises captured over the ocean. Currently, Blood has been drawn to exploring abstract images found in everyday surroundings. She focuses on textures, patterns, light and shadows, to pique a viewer’s interest or tell a story.

Since arriving in South Carolina, Blood has been fortunate to win several awards in judged Art shows. One of her photographs was chosen as the cover image of the Grand Strand Magazine’s April/May 2013 issue. Recently, Blood was chosen as an “Artist in Residence” sponsored by the SC Parks Department, and spent a week at Cheraw State Park. Additionally, several of her images have been selected to appear in Town Planner calendars (2010-2013) and the 2012 WPDE Weather calendar.

Blood is Vice President of the Seacoast Artists Guild, and a member of Carolina Nature Photographers Association. You can find her artwork displayed at Seacoast Artists Gallery at The Market Common, Applewood House of Pancakes and Mercy Center Hospice. 

The Seacoast Artists Gallery exhibits the original artwork of over 70 local artists. Oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, fiber art, photography, engraved silver and clay are just some of the media that can be viewed and purchased at the gallery. The Guild is a 501(c)(3) non-profit visual arts organization dedicated to promoting and advancing excellence in the visual arts through teaching, exhibits, workshops and special events. It is focused on developing and nurturing young artists-to-be through training programs, sponsorship of art scholarships and art shows.
