About This Show
Dr. Edgar’s guest is renowned Charleston watercolorist Mary Whyte. Whyte has gained national recognition for her figurative watercolors. Most noted for her depictions of the African American Gullah women of Johns Island, South Carolina, near where she lives, Whyte has, in recent years, turned her attention to paintings of southern workers. Fifty of these paintings and drawings are now part of a traveling exhibition of her work, called Working South, and a book of her paintings by the same name has been published (USC Press).
