Because our website calendar doesn’t like events that last more than a day and often fails to display them properly, we’re going to keep a running list of ART EXHIBITIONS & EVENTS right here with “Artie,” the paint-splattered pooch as our mascot. Scroll through to see ongoing displays at our local galleries, followed by special art events we have listed by date.

Hotel Simone – 1200 Ocean Boulevard

Trish Rugaber is the current Artist in Residency at Hotel Simone in partnership with Glynn Visual Arts (GVA). Rugaber is the sixth artist to be featured in this series since its launch in January of 2023. GVA is the oldest arts organization in the area with a mission to enrich the community by stimulating interest and participation in the visual arts while providing St. Simons Island and the broader Golden Isles community with a center for creative expression, a source of art education, and a showcase for art and artists both locally and nationally celebrated.

Rugaber has enjoyed drawing and painting since childhood. She studied art in Connecticut before attending graduate school at the University of Florida, where she had the opportunity to study with internationally-acclaimed botanical artist Marion Ruff Sheehan. In the 1990s she embarked on a twelve-year journey of classical studies in oils with Jeanne Nelson Szabo.  During those years, she was a biology and botany professor at the College of Coastal Georgia, and combined her love of the natural world with her art as a way of life.  Over the past 25 years, Rugaber has exhibited widely throughout the Southeast, and her work is represented in many private collections.  She is a member of the American Impressionist Society, the American Society of Botanical Artists, Glynn Visual Arts (St. Simons Island, GA), the Jekyll Island Art Association (Jekyll Island, GA), the Arts Council of Henderson County, the Art League of Henderson County, and the Arts Council of Transylvania County (NC). Rugaber co-founded ArtTrends Gallery on St. Simons Island in 2015, and her work has been an ongoing part of the gallery ever since.      

 Of this exhibition, Rugaber says, “I am honored for this wonderful opportunity. In my 2023-24 series of oil paintings entitled ‘Impressions of Driftwood Beach’, I wanted to capture the awe and inspiration that I feel of this special place in the Golden Isles.  I hope that viewers will catch that spark as well.”  

Rugaber’s work will be on display through June 30 and can be viewed daily during normal business hours in the lobby of Hotel Simone. See more about Trish and her art at trishrugaber.com
