Plein air painter Kip Bradley is painting six marsh locations around Savannah, Georgia over the course of a year to document coastal changes.

“The project will support efforts to immerse myself knee-deep in a muddy adventure to further my awareness and effort to find unity in the patterns of nature and painting through repetitive investigation, in order to share a story of appreciation for life at the marshes edge,” Kip said.

His writings and 24 paintings will be made into hand-bound books, and the final paintings will be shared at the Kalmanson Gallery (East Georgia State College, Swainsboro) in September 2023.

About the Plein Air Artist

J. Kip Bradley has 20 years of community-based arts experience working with Savannah’s underserved populations. For the past 10 years, Kip has worked locally and internationally, organizing sketching and painting groups and teaching workshops that encourage people to explore a sense of presentness through painting and drawing.

As part of his project, Kip has selected six coastal locations that he will paint four times over the span of a year, capturing seasonal and artistic changes in the marsh. He will share the process of painting each site on his blog, documenting the history and ecology at each site as well as observations of the people utilizing these publicly accessible locations.
