If you are living on an Island sometimes, more or less all the time, you want to get out from that particular island, it doesn’t even matter if you are visiting another island. You basically just wannna get out from there. So because of this reason I often go to Jekyll. It is like 30 minutes away from St. Simons, which is not that bad at all. Jekyll isaland is actually owned by the State of Georgia, so even if you have a property on the Island, you still don’t own anything. Since it is State owned, there is a certain entrance fee to the island, imagine as if it would be a national park kind of. For that pass you can enter to the island and visit all the facilities, bars, restaurants as well.

On behalf of The Miller Gallery and Charleston artist Olivia Bonilla, you're invited to a special opening reception featuring Bonilla’s newest collection of work, Grass is Greener on Thursday June 8 from 6 til 9pm. Sip crisp beverages and enjoy Bonilla’s first solo showcase in Charleston. The pristine, camera-ready warehouse space at Silver Hill Studios creates the perfect venue for Bonilla’s larger-than-life confectionary sculptures in Grass is Greener. A first generation Colombian-American artist, Bonilla focuses on unconventional materials such as pigmented cement and automotive paint in an array of hues, bringing us a fresh addition to the contemporary sculpture scene since 2018. During Grass is Greener visitors will experience a visual playground Cement transforms into frothy landscapes, resin drips appear wet to the touch, and automotive paint culture cross pollinates with Pop Art. This exhibition is an invitation to navigate nostalgia in a new way. Indulge in not-so- edible resin confection. Giant cement cupcakes, a towering wall of rainbow gummy bears, a 4 foot tall tongue-tied cherry, and a “sculpture garden” awash in color are just a few of the enchanting elements you’ll experience in this art show. A show for all ages, for Grass is Greener Bonilla brings back the color palettes of the 70s- 90s, three-dimensionally. Bonilla has taken the better part of a year to develop the largest works in this collection, eloquently adding to her artistic vocabulary. By creating her own silicone molds of sculpted cement she has been able to deepen the narrative of her work. Bonilla will be debuting a new series of classical sculpture reproductions that embody the bridge between Art History and color theory. With a BFA in painting, Bonilla revisits the influence of her classical training through an interpretation of the infamous “Nefertiti” sculpture and the “Head of David’'. Timely subjects to be included in her first large scale solo show, these two antiquated subjects have been brought back from the dead with a nod to today’s cultural celebration of Queens and sexualized masterpieces from the history books. We hope you’ll join us for June 8th, 9th or 10th at Silver Hill Studios to view Grass is Greener. See the show information attached for specified viewing hours and important parking notes. For a full catalog of the artwork, additional questions, or for inquires to purchase, please contact us [email protected]. Opening night: June 8 from 6-9pm Viewing hours: June 9 from 11-7, June 10 from 11-3 Silver Hill Studio is located at 2140 Amaker Street. Please see parking instructions
