Local artist to use his work to discuss Lowcountry living
Artist John Duckworth of Johns Island, S.C., will visit The Citadel Oct. 7 to discuss the South Carolina Lowcountry through his art work, photography and filmmaking.
Duckworth’s work has been exhibited in Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, D.C. His latest “paintings from a camera” are part of a series of works that explore the shifting dynamics of life in the Lowcountry. "Landscape Abstract #12255, Palmetto Island,” taken at Palmetto Island County Park hangs in the lobby of Capers Hall on campus.
Duckworth’s lecture is free and open to the public beginning at 6:30 p.m. in Bond Hall Room 165. It is part of the Fulghum Lecture Series, which was created in 2007 by the Department of History Southern Studies Program to promote a better understanding of the American South and to help prepare students to be principled leaders in the region.
The Fulghum Lecture Series is named after its benefactor, Leonard C. Fulghum, Jr. of Charleston, Citadel class of 1951, and member emeritus of The Citadel Board of Visitors. He is president of Lenwall Enterprises, Inc.
