Charleston Place Hotel Dedicates Lobby to Gullah Artist, Jonathan Green

Charleston Place Hotel Dedicates Lobby to Gullah Artist, Jonathan Green

The Lowcountry Gullah Culture is a unique and vibrant culture that has been passed down through generations of African Americans living in the coastal regions of North Carolina, South Carolina Florida and Georgia with descendants all over the country. The Gullah people have their own language, music, art, and cuisine, which are all deeply rooted in their West African heritage. One of the most prominent artists to depict the Gullah culture is Jonathan Green, a native of South Carolina and a Gullah Artist who has gained international recognition for his colorful and evocative paintings.

Jonathan Green was born in 1955 in Gardens Corner, South Carolina, and grew up in a Gullah-speaking community. He was fascinated by the vibrant colors and patterns of the fabrics and baskets made by the women in his community, and this early exposure to the visual arts inspired him to pursue a career as an artist. After studying at the Art Institute of Chicago, Green returned to South Carolina to focus on capturing the essence of the Gullah culture in his paintings.

Green’s work is characterized by bold, bright colors and a strong sense of movement and rhythm. Many of his paintings depict scenes of everyday life in the Gullah community, such as children playing, women weaving baskets, and men fishing in the marshes. His art celebrates the resilience and creativity of the Gullah people, and has helped to raise awareness of this unique culture around the world.

Charleston Place Hotel recently dedicated its lobby to honor the life and work of renowned Gullah artist Jonathan Green. The hotel’s management made the decision to recognize Green’s contributions to the Lowcountry community and to promote the cultural heritage of the area.

The lobby now features several of Green’s paintings, along with a plaque that explains the significance of his work. This dedication is not only a tribute to Green’s artistic talent, but also serves as a reminder of the rich cultural history of the Lowcountry. Visitors to the hotel can now experience the beauty of Green’s artwork while learning about the Gullah culture that has shaped the region for centuries.

Last evening was truly a spectacular surprise! The Charleston Place Hotel administration surprised me with a tribute dedication of the lobby lounge in my honor. Of course, they had the insider assistance of my dear friend and business partner, Dr. Kim Cliett Long. However, I am still floored that they all were able to pull it off without my knowledge!! I’m overjoyed!! Please stop by to view and when you do, please be sure to include drinks and food. Make an afternoon or evening of it!!
