Linda Hilts presents “Sea to Shining Sea and Places in Between”


Featured Artist Exhibit runs November 5-December 1 with opening reception from 3-5 p.m. November 11

Linda Hilts’ “Sea to Shining Sea and Places in Between” will feature her favorite art mediums — watercolor, acrylic and pastel — during an exhibit from Nov. 5- Dec. 1 at The Society of Bluffton Artists gallery, located on Church Street in Old Town Bluffton. An opening reception is scheduled from 3-5 p.m. Nov. 11 at the gallery. The event is free and open to the public.

Hilts is a long-time artist — whose experience with different cultures across the United States and Europe helped shaped her art.

“Art has always been a passion for me,” Hilts said. “The smell of the paint, the sight of colors mixing and blending with each other is — for me — the creative magic that art is made of.”

Hilts ran a successful children’s art parties business and developed a  a children’s art program at the Monongahlia Art Center in Morgantown, WV. She earned a bachelor’s degree in human resources and a studio art certificate from Immaculate University in Malvern, PA. In addition to being a member of SoBA, Hilts also is a member of the All About Art group in Sun City Hilton Head.

Hilts retired to Bluffton from Marlborough, MA four years ago. She and her husband started Act II Enterprises, a business that repurposes unwanted orphaned wood furniture.
