Events and Exhibits


   Sidney Gauthreaux Art Exhibit

Our current art exhibit opened Tuesday, February 13th.  The exhibit features the work of local artist, Sidney Gauthreaux and will last until September 7th.

 Sid grew up in New Orleans and received his MS and Ph. D degrees from Louisiana State University and did a post-doctorate at the Institute of Ecology at the University of Georgia.  He joined the faculty at Clemson University in 1970 where he taught courses in animal behavior, ornithology, and behavioral ecology.  His research specialty is in the area of detecting, monitoring, and quantifying the numbers of migrating birds in the atmosphere with weather radar.  He retired from Clemson in 2006.

 Throughout his career, he has continued his interest in drawing and painting portraits of birds.  Most of his work is with watercolor, but he occasionally uses acrylics and oils.

 After his retirement, Sid and his wife, Carroll Belser, moved to Edisto Island where they live at Sunny Side Plantation on Store Creek.
