Fun expedition by Bryson Thurston: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. every day until January 11; The Sensitive Bean, 13 E. Park Ave.
The solo exhibition blurs the lines of adventure and misadventure through a playful series of mixed media paintings, created in 2021; inspired by time spent on Tybee Island and Savannah in late spring. The cowboys, explorers, and characters found in his paintings are reminiscent of a child’s adventure fantasies and seem to have a story of their own. Bryson chooses to leave plenty of room for the imagination: the series invites the viewer’s inner child to play, rekindling a sense of joy and curiosity we all once knew.
