From October 15th to November 29th, the National Association of Women Artists South Carolina (NAWA SC) presents "Inspirational Journey," a juried and curated fine art exhibition in honor of author Pat Conroy, his writing and community service, at The Vendue Art Hotel. The event is sponsored by the Vendue Art Hotel and the Robert Lang Studios, in conjunction with The Pat Conroy Literary Center.
