Sarah Jaillette & Phoebe Smothers

Sisters Sarah Jaillette & Phoebe Smothers will have work on display at the Black Creek Arts Center in February.

As one would expect, sisters Jaillette & Smothers have a lot in common. They have the same parents. They live in the same town. They both have work in Darlington's Birds Of A Feather, an art and antique gallery that Jaillette and Linda Howle run.

Despite these commonalities, it would be hard to tell these two ladies are sisters when looking at their artwork. Jaillette's signature paintings contain birds and she is also well-known for her seascapes. Smothers, on the other hand, creates mostly non-representational work (see below).

BCAC is pleased to be showing the work of Sarah Jaillette and Phoebe Smothers. Both women, along with Linda Howle, were instrumental in the Darlington Artist Crawl in April 2009. Check out their gallery, Birds Of A Feather, at 106 Siskron Street, just off the Square in Darlington.

This exhibit will be one of eight exhibits opening on February 4th at the Black Creek Arts Center. An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:00pm on February 4th. The Black Creek Arts Center is located at 116 West College Avenue. For more information, call 843.332.6234.
