Personal Tour for The Hat Ladies

Noted art critics and reviewers consider Jonathan Green one of the most important painters of the Southern experience.  His work, which has been exhibited in major venues nationally internationally as well as locally, reflects an intrinsic sense of history and place.  Its iconic Lowcountry scenes reflect colorful African American traditions as well as tales and stories told by members of his extended family and friends; they communicate a strong sense of conceptual accuracy.

Along with all of Charleston, The Hat Ladies consider him a South Carolina treasure, one who is not merely extremely talented but an approachable and personable human being. The Hat Ladies formed a bond of years ago, thanks to our love of hats and Jonathan's love of painting ladies in hats. Nonetheless, we were deeply honored to have him invite us to a private Tour of his private collection being featured at The Gibbes Museum.  Samples of his own work are always on display.
