Anne Brodie Hill first came to Ossabaw Island with the the Ossabaw Artists' Collective  two times, in 2016 and 2017. Anne painted this 5" x 7" framed oil painting on February 11, 2017.  This painting was done "en plein air" while sitting on the picnic table behind the Club House.  The subject is a really cute armadillo, who was rooting around in the grass for a long time - giving me time to take a photo, do a pen and ink and watercolor sketch, and this oil painting. The value is $200.00.

Basket, 10½" x 4½" Artist:  Debra Shea Ossabaw Island sweetgrass, seashells, beach wood, longleaf pine needles, Irish waxed linen thread, hand cut copper pig. Coiled using plain stitch, diamond stitch, spiral wheat stitch. Faggoting stitch used in the portals mimics fisherman's netting. Braided sweetgrass stitched to rim, and undulating sides of basket represent the ocean waves.   A bit about the artist:   I am mostly self-taught in pine needle basketry. About 25 years ago I participated in a one-day class in coiling pine needles for baskets. I found it interesting to make something beautiful as well as functional from nature's cast-offs of needles and cones, but I didn't pursue it. Years later we bought an old farmhouse with longleaf pines on the property. This inspired me to seriously take up this craft.    There is much involved prior to even beginning a basket. Needles are harvested, triaged, washed, and dried. They can be dyed, fumed, painted, glycerined, or left natural. Once made, the end product can be left as is, or a protective coating of urethane or beeswax applied. Often the baskets have a mind of their own, and what I envisioned creating at the start will turn out differently in the end. To me, coiled baskets are a reminder that life's journey doesn’t always follow a straight path, but that can often lead to something even better!   A visit to Ossabaw Island inspired this basket. It is my first time using sweetgrass. I have tried to incorporate many of the things seen and found on this beautiful, bountiful island.

Helen Durant created this 12”x12”, mixedmedia/ acrylic , paper of two of the donkeys still living on Ossabaw Island.  The story of the Ossabaw donkeys goes back almost fifty years and hovers around a charming island on the coast of South Carolina and a delightful man who owned the Island and  had lived there most of his life.  His great love and deep interest was animals.   In his later years he decided to import many exotic animals that could, of course, survive happily in a  compatible land that would provide familiar climate, food and terrain.  Soon Bull island was the home of zebra, mouflon, water buffalo and a group of Sicilian donkeys. The donkeys came from Sicily in the nineteen forties.  Alas, Porter Crosley, for that was the name of this remarkable man, died not too long after his wish was fulfilled, and the animals had to find a new home.  They were given to carefully selected people. The news reached me eventually, just at the time of my son’s tenth birthday. I sneaked into the family Volkswagen minibus and left for Bull Island where I was greeted warmly and left with two jacks, a jenny and another jenny with a baby. They were all beautiful, lovable, friendly and peaceful. In Savannah I stopped at the post office, rushed in to get the mail, and came out to see an enchanted mob laughing with the donkeys in the bus. My son, Justin, was thrilled and so was everyone else.  My Genesis biology students were delighted to be able to study wild animals loose on Ossabaw – living the life they were born to live without human tampering, experimenting and training. Three Genesis members from Penn State University received their PhDs with dissertations about the behavior of wild donkeys.  ---Sandy West

Gay Gillies, Mrs. West's Great neice has created this Mixed Media on paper measuring 7”x 11” Http://www.gaygilliesart.com www.instagram.com/gaygilliesart/ Eleanor “Sandy” Torrey West (1913-2021) is Ossabaw Island’s best-known and longest resident. From 1987 to May 1, 2016, Sandy lived on the island full time.  Sandy West first set foot on Ossabaw Island at age 11 in 1924. Her love of the island began in her childhood, shortly after her parents, Henry and Nell Torrey of Detroit, Michigan, purchased Ossabaw Island in 1924 as their winter retreat.  In 1965 Sandy learned about several donkeys needing adoption from a former breeder in South Carolina.  Sandy brought eleven of the animals to the island for pets for her youngest child.  The descendents of those donkeys live today in the wild on Ossabaw Island.  To protect the island from the impact of too many non-native animals, all remaining donkeys have been sterilized to prevent future generations. In the early 1970’s the rising property taxes for Ossabaw Island forced Sandy, her children and her nieces and nephews to face the necessity of giving up ownership of the island.  Rather than sell Ossabaw for private development, the Torreys and the Wests sought to assure that the island would remain in the unspoiled condition that they valued and had worked to preserve for nearly fifty years. After eight years of negotiations with various state and federal organizations, the Torrey/West family, in an arrangement facilitated by then-President Jimmy Carter, sold Ossabaw Island to the state in 1978, at 50% percent of its estimated market value.  The sale stipulated that Ossabaw Island be declared Georgia’s first heritage preserve—set aside in perpetuity for scientific, educational, and cultural uses only.
