About the artist: Jim Booth, a self-taught artist, has become widely known for his life-like realism.  Jim reaches into the viewers’ minds and touches their positive and pleasing thoughts.  A very prolific artist, he uses a wide range of themes to communicate with as many people as possible.  His art recreates the history of Charleston’s lowcountry.  With works that span the millennium, Jim paints scenes of the Civil War, antebellum Charleston, the early 1900’s and into the present with the Citadel, Hurricane Hugo, and the Morris Island Lighthouse.  Jim’s exquisite details are a time machine that guides his guest through Charleston’s heritage.
