Peter Kastner's passion for Ossabaw Island and the opportunity for photography started a few years ago when he volunteered for the Butterfly Alliance of the Atlantic Flyway annual fall count on Ossabaw Island.  Peter attended a  photography workshop this past spring that focused on shooting the Milky Way .  He was able to capture the changes of the light on the South End Beach.   Peter printed these images on metal, each measuring 8" x10" .  Peter was so inspired he created a 2023 calendar of his work from the beach shoot.  Peter donated these calendars to the Ossabaw Island Foundation, to purchase a 2023 calendar click here.

Henry Hoover from White Pine, Tennessee creates these musical instruments.  He has provided a canjo songbook and picks.  Mr. Hoover is with the group of Tennessee educators who love Ossabaw Island.   A canjo is a fretted, single string, acoustic instrument with an American-sourced hardwood body hand rubbed with boiled linseed oil and a Spam can as the resonator. The fretboard is a perfect diatonic scale with flawless dulcimer style fretting and twelve notes or finger positions. The single tuner at the head is a finely crafted Grover guitar tuner. A Spam can is used because the tonal quality and volume is unmatched - there is no finer canjo anywhere. It's bright and loud like a banjo, durable, lightweight, and the most handsome instrument around! Who knew Spam could sound so good? How to Play It is typically held like a banjo or mandolin but may also be played on a table or lap like a dulcimer. Running along the side of the Canjo neck are numbers stamped "1" through "11". This corresponds to the numbers over the words of each song in the Canjo Songbook. The musician simply moves his or her fingers to the different numbers in the song literally playing by numbers. A canjo can also be used with an amplifier to make the sound even better!

Debra Shea visited Ossabaw Island in 2021.  During this visit to Ossabaw Island the group was served delicious tea and cocktails made from the leaves of the Yaupon Holly. This is the teapot's inspiration. The pot measures 8"x8"x10". Teapot created using Ossabaw Island sweetgrass and North Carolina pine needles. Removable lid topped with driftwood and seashell, also from the island. Coiled with black artificial waxed sinew, using the spiral wheat stitch and fern stitch. Added spout, braided handle, and footer. Meandering pine needle tendrils formed by splitting coils. 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!

The concept was a natural fit as it’s already a part of her photo encaustic process, but stops just shy of the wax application. Quite simply, it’s a digital photo taken on location, digitally manipulated, and printed using pigmented inks on archival fine art paper. The piece Cora has donated is a limited edition (3 of 50) fine art photography framed print. If you look closely in the sky there’s a nautical map showing you exactly where the photo was taken on Ossabaw Island.

Laurie Cordaro was inspired by the roseate spoonbills who now make their home seasonally on Ossabaw Island.   The roseate spoonbill is a large wading bird known for its pink plumage and distinctive spoon-shaped bill. Its upper neck and back are colored white, while the wings and feathers underneath display the more recognizable light shade of pink. Using its spoon-like bill to scoop prey up from shallow water, the roseate spoonbill's diet typically includes minnows, small crustaceans, insects and bits of plants. They feed in the early morning and evening hours in both fresh and saltwater wetlands. It is believed the roseate spoonbill receives its bright coloring from the pigments of the crustaceans that it eats.

Betsy Cain, Savannah artist, shared her artist statement. The use of the color indigo has been part of my work for some time now. I remember seeing the film Daughters of the Dust by Julie Dash when it first came out in 1991. That film gave me a profound understanding and deeper comprehension of the low country, the significance of that color, its history and the people who grew, harvested and created the dye. It altered how I viewed where I live. The process of working with a limited palette (that glorious indigo oil) and generous amounts of turpentine has summoned the forms to suggest a figurative state. If you look closely, the marks are an approximation of the body or the torso or the head. It’s the proximity to what we know that creates the acceptance of a figurative form even as we search for the definition of it. I love this visual ability of ours to fill in the blanks with limited information and then to imagine an indigo queen.  The work is indigo oil on yupo paper, it measures 21” X 27” framed.

  Harry Delorme has been a long time contributing artist to the Ossabaw Art Auctions.  His landscapes of the island and the man made structures are always popular.  This landscape of the island is created with acrylic on panel with found plastic from Ossabaw Island and other locations.  This is a reminder that many of us think that Ossabaw Island is pristine but debris from the mainland does wash up in the marshes and along the beaches.

Gwen Pacella is inspired by the famous Ossabaw donkey’s and their story.  Mrs. West brought these blessed creatures, as she would fondly call the donkeys to the island in 1965.  The remaining donkeys are the descendants from Sandy’s original 16 that she gave to her youngest son as a Christmans gift.  Gwen created a block print and acrylic of a donkey for this year’s donation.  Happy bidding!
