Now through the end of January, head to the City of North Charleston's art gallery (located in the Convention Center) to see work from two Lowcountry artists. The concurrent exhibits feature work from Katherine Hester of Pinopolis, S.C. and Jenion Tyson of North Charleston.

Hester's work, Ebb and Flow, is a series of mixed media paintings of the ocean, inspired by the idea of a romantic day at the beach vs. the reality of humans' impact on coastal life. Proceeds from the sale of Hester's work will be donated to the South Carolina Aquarium's Sea Turtle Care Center.

What began as an exploratory series prior to Hurricane Florence, artist Jenion Tyson's A Bug's Eye View: Macro Photography in the Garden, depicts small, often overlooked flowering plants common to South Carolina yards. Tyson enlarges the view of the plants to new, nearly unrecognizable perspectives.

Tyson's exhibit features 13 macrophotographs displayed alongside smaller, corresponding photographs that show recognizable views of the plants — as well as short essays written by Tyson.
