Garden Reception for The Mary Whyte Art Educator's Award '08

The garden courtyard of Coleman Fine Art on historic Church St. was a lovely setting for a reception to present The Mary Whyte Art Educator's Award 2008 this afternoon.

Charleston Mayor Joe Riley was on hand to present the award which is given for excellence in teaching art in a Charleston county school.

This year the award was presented to Dona Dowling of St. John's High School pictured here being congratulated by Smith Coleman, owner of Coleman Fine Art as Mayor Riley applauds.
