UISCE “ish-kaH” - An Exhibit by Lillie Morris

Thursday, March 4, 2021 - 5:30pm

The Arts Center of Kershaw County, in partnership with Irish Fest Camden, presents the Bassett Gallery Opening of "UISCE," an exhibit by Lillie Morris. Uisce /ish-ka/ is the Irish word for "water," and happens to be the origin of the word "whiskey." The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 7:00 p.m. There will be a cash bar for patrons and all COVID-19 guidelines will be practiced. Best known for her acrylic, collage and mixed media paintings, Lillie also occasionally works in cold wax and encaustic painting. She specializes in abstract art, both representational and non-representational. Her paintings, whether collage, acrylic or a mixture of mediums reveal a love of texture, color and experimentation. Richly layered and with her own vocabulary of gestural marks and linear elements, Lillie strives to convey the emotional impact of her source of it the landscape, music, poetry or deep personal experiences. Lillie enjoys creating visually stimulating images that leave the subject open to the viewer’s interpretation. Ms. Morris has travelled to Ireland many times and will display works depicting the people and places of Ireland. Mrs. Morris will be at the reception, so patrons will have the opportunity to meet with her and discuss her artwork. Visit to view Lillie’s work. Music will be provided by Sarah Garvin.
