May - June

Waccamaw Library Featured Artist, Nancy J. Bracken

Throughout May and June 2019, a new exhibit by area artist Nancy J. Bracken will be on display at the Waccamaw Library for viewing that is free and open to the public during the Library’s normal hours of operation. The exhibit is titled “Where Have I Been? Where in the World Am I Going?” and explores landscapes and architectures that have sparked Bracken’s creative vision at home on the South Carolina coast as well as abroad. These paintings reveal the myriad places her artistic imagination has lighted before, and make us wonder where in the world she might be venturing next.
