Artist Bio
Kelly Logan Graham is this year's Mayfest feature artist.

Kelly is legendary in the Lowcountry - and has been a resident here for over 40 years. His works are displayed in many businesses throughout town, and his art is also in private and corporate collections throughout the US and the UK.

He grew up in in the similarly sized small town of Blowing Rock, NC. Perhaps this is why his artwork so aptly depicts a simpler way of life. He lives near the May River, a source of inspiration for many of his drawings and paintings. Kelly paints in his home studio, and began painting from his boat, and painting plein-aire on location.

This gifted artist is celebrated for incorporating nature into his art, and his works are often described as defining Bluffton and the Bluffton lifestyle. According to Kelly, “I look for balance between what I see and what I feel. I regard my art as representational, stylistically wandering between realism, impressionism, and expressionism.”

In addition to his painting and playing drums in a local band, Kelly served (retired) as Executive Director of the Historical Bluffton Foundation at the Heyward House in Bluffton. He and his wife, Ann live close to the river and Old Town Bluffton
