“As a child growing up on the edge of a Savannah marsh, I liked to visit the marsh at night,” says Andrea Rountree. “To me it was a soft and silent place of awe where an old gnarled cedar could acquire a mysterious presence and stars affirm the peace that connects all living things.”
An artists’ reception is set for May 6, from 6-9 p.m. in conjunction with Art March. Cultural Arts Gallery is located at 9 W. Henry St. Gallery hours are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Free off-street parking is available. For more information, visit www.savannahga.gov/ arts.
