2017 SEWE Gala at Belmond Charleston Place Hotel

Artist Chad Poppleton at the SEWE Gala
The 35th Anniversary year of the SouthEastern Wildlife Expo opened with a black tie gala and auction on Thursday at 7, welcoming featured artist Ezra Tucker to get front and center in the ballroom. This preview of the fine wildlife art at Belmond Charleston Place allows VIP patrons to view or purchase original artwork they might like to secure for a collection or home. The artists and their spouses are always gracious to explain in detail their medium and exactly how a certain scene came to be.

Ryan Kirby talks about his artwork
A smorgasbord of food options including smoked salmon, ham biscuits, assorted cheeses and desserts is sure to please everyone, and the SEWE edition wine pairs nicely on the palate. Every year it is evident that this room consists of like-minded people who appreciate art, and who yearn to return to outdoor endeavors whenever possible. Conservation is highly regarded here, and each booth displays the artist's name and hometown, so conversations about happenings back in their home states is a common topic.
