Creative Collaboration Yields Dividends
By Lynda Macaluso
There’s an old saying that two heads are better than one. And the proof of that is evident in the display of joint talents currently at the First Citizens Bank on Town Center North.
In the first partnership, renowned local artist Jeffrey Callaham has combined his paintings with the writings of Juanita Pittman-Brown, inspirational poet and author, to create a beautiful calendar for First Citizens. Each of Jeffrey’s paintings bears his original title and a line of poetry by Juanita to enhance it.
A friendship which grew between former colleagues at the McCormick Middle School has produced a different art form. Giclee prints of Callaham’s paintings form the center of gorgeous quilted wall hangings by Margaret Hunt. Margaret is an internationally known quilter whose colorful designs are a perfect pairing with the painting style of her friend.
The talented trio will also be working on a number of projects for the Children’s Miracle Network, including a coloring book, tee-shirts, note cards, a calendar, and quilts. (The Children’s Miracle Network is an alliance of premier children’s hospitals across the country, which treats seventeen million children every year.)
Jeffrey Callaham’s paintings are currently on display through June at the South Carolina Botanical Garden at Clemson University. His work is also available at the Daufuskie Island Gallery, south of Hilton Head, and at “The Fish Cut Bait” in Edisto Island. Jeffrey is a fulltime artist in residence at the McCormick Arts Council at the Keturah (MACK).
