Mary Whyte's Down Bohicket Road Book Launch
Watercolor artist Mary Whyte is a teacher and author whose figurative paintings have earned national recognition. Her portraits are included in numerous corporate, private, and university collections, as well as in the permanent collections of South Carolina's Greenville County Museum of Art and the Gibbes Museum of Art in Charleston. Whyte's work has been featured in International Artist, Artist, American Artist, Watercolor, American Art Collector, L'Art de l'Aquarelle, and numerous other publications. Whyte is the author of "Working South: Paintings and Sketches by Mary Whyte", "Painting Portraits and Figures in Watercolor, An Artist's Way of Seeing", and "Watercolor for the Serious Beginner". Her work can be found at Coleman Fine Art in Charleston.


"Down Bohicket Road" continues the story of Whyte's relationship with these extraordinary women, following the passing of Alfreda, against the backdrop of the ongoing commercial development of Johns Island. For Whyte, the heart of this community remains in the simple homes clustered along Bohicket Road, in the island's winding tidal creeks, and in a small church where eighteen hardscrabble women gather in fellowship each week. In her book Whyte illustrates that both watercolors and friendships can be the unpredictable results of an abundance of blessings. As shared through touching words and vibrant paintings, "Down Bohicket Road" celebrates a unique way of coastal life and a remarkable friendship that transcends all barriers -even death itself-in praise of the unifying power of art.
