During Buy Local Month, LLF works to showcase the great work local businesses are doing for their community and to steer consumers to these businesses at the height of the holiday shopping season.

Artist Reception: 33 Between Father / Daughter

"33 years between Sophie Sweeney and her father Thomas. They both paint, draw, and build. When Larry from Lowcountry Local First gave them the chance to put work up on walls together, they could not say no. A conversation started as an attempt to find a common theme they could both dig into. The graphic and ubiquitous nature of a deck of cards initially piqued a collective curiosity. Both looked at face cards and sketched out options for further discussion and analysis. Those discussions lead to disparate directions taken by each of them. This work is the culmination of that process. Enjoy meeting Thomas and Sophie, learning more about their work and exploring the Local Works space. Light bites and sips will be served. All are welcome to this free event.". Event Type: Arts and Culture. Changemakers. Thursday, December 13, 2018, 5:30 PM – 8:30 PM. Local Works, 1630 Meeting St. Building 2, Charleston, SC.
