New exhibit in the Dr. N. Lee Morris Gallery

Florence Library’s Morris Gallery Welcomes Patricia Sabreee

The Doctor N. Lee Morris Gallery will feature an exhibit entitled “Listen to the Land” by Gullah artist Patricia Sabreee. There will be an artist reception and exhibit opening on Thursday, August 17, 2023 from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The exhibit, sponsored by Friends of Florence County Library, is inspired by her growing up on a large farm with 15 siblings, and will run through January 3, 2024.

Sabreee was born and raised in Lake City, S.C. on her family’s farm. She earned her B.A. from South Carolina State University and her Masters of Education from Southern Wesleyan. She taught art for twenty-one years, but in 2010 she decided to pursue her own art fulltime. She now has her own gallery; Sabreee’s Gallery of the Arts in Savannah, Georgia, which is dedicated to educating and preserving the Gullah culture. Sabreee has received several awards for her artwork.  More information about Sabreee and her artwork can be found on her website, www.sabreesgallery.com.

The Doctor N. Lee Morris Gallery is located on the second floor of the Drs. Bruce and Lee Foundation Library in Florence and is open Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.; Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.; and Saturday, 9:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. For more information about this exhibit and related events, please visit www.florencelibrary.org.
