Chetta Davis

Chetta Davis will be doing a presentation designed to give “The Sighted Community: a look into the world of someone losing their eye sight.”


Receiving her B.A. in Journalism and Media studies she is no stranger when it comes to behind the lens. Studying photography at SCAD photography comes natural to her. 

As an artist she is a poet, writer, videographer & photographer. She was inspired to create a body of work she titles #BeautyUnveiling which is inspired by her vision loss. The purpose behind this work is to educate and bring awareness to vision loss.

With the breaking of the digital age for photography in the 1990's and the ability to immediately 'see' the image, my casual interest in the media became a driving advocation that led to eventually turning professional and becoming a gallery owner.

Although I photograph sports, urban scenes, and people, the bulk of my work centers on Lowcountry scenes, wildlife, and culture.   My passion is capturing nature, be it the egret feeding its young or the sun splashing its last rays over a coastal backwater.    

When taking and subsequently post processing the image, I strive to capture  mood  --of the day, of the scene, of the action,   to create an impact and place all into the finished art.  Note the word "finished".  That is how I became interested in printing.  I print all of my work as this process helps me establish the 'mood' desired, fun but frustrating at times.

In the past two years, three of my works were accepted into the SC State Fair Fine Art “Photography” Division. One received an award of merit (2014) and another placed second in the show (2015). In the three times I have entered the Seacoast Artist Guild juried shows, my art has claimed a second and two firsts. Additionally, my two entrants to the juried Lake City Art Fest, the largest in the Carolinas, were accepted.

Additionally, I have participated in the following juried art shows: Atalaya Art Fest, Spoleto, Brookgreen, and Southport as well as a number of local festivals.

I am the owner of the Lowcountry Art Gallery, Pawleys Island, SC, a gallery specializing in Carolina coastal scenes and nature. My work is also displayed at the Rice Museum, Georgetown, SC; at Harvest Common, Pawleys Island, SC; in the Seacoast Art Gallery at Market Common, Myrtle Beach, SC; and at the Sunset River Gallery, Calabash, NC.
