Photography by PAULA EUBANKS

The surrealistic photography of Paula Eubanks makes a statement about sea level rise in a unique and provocative way. A native of the Georgia coastal area and a scholar of the historic architectural sites along with the ecology of Georgia's barrier islands, Paula addresses the issue of sea level rise through juxtaposing images of the historic coastal buildings with imagery of water within those architectural boundaries creating beautiful and thought-provoking imaginings and compositions.

The Sea Level Series is crafted using images made in historic coastal buildings, like Fort Clinch and Fort Pulaski where sea level is measured, and structures on Ossabaw, St. Simons and Cumberland Islands, combined with images of water.  Usually the beach is a place for play and appreciation of great beauty where a view of the water is highly valued. As sea level rises, that same charismatic water could become a threat.


Syd Summerhill’s elegant marble and bronze sculptures are exhibited coast to coast and are held in significant collections throughout the country. His range and intimate knowledge of the materials with which he works have led to a prolific body of work from maquettes to monumental pieces. His figurative work, whether in marble, stone, wood or bronze, are light, warm and graceful. Syd is a member of The National Sculpture Society and co-founder of the Art City School of Sculpture in Southern California. He is largely self-taught work has won awards across the country. He now lives and works on St Simons Island.
