Seeing a Sally King Benedict exhibition is always the highlight of our year and after last years ‘Lanai’ exhibition at the Hidell Brooks, we were looking forward to the artist newest exhibition titled, ‘Storyboard.’ The exhibition, which opened on October 4th, was everything we were hoping for. The artists work filled the Hidell Brooks Gallery with light, color and left this lover of all things art in a state of absolute happiness.
For the shared love of storytelling through pictures. I wanted to create a larger than life experience inspired by the imagined narratives between mother and son. Creative Direction by River. – Sally King Benedict
Storyboard featured both mixed media on canvas as well as several works of mixed media on paper. Our favorite of the artist works on paper was without a doubt Fernbank Face 2019.

Sally King Benedict
Sally King Benedict received her BA in studio art from the College of Charleston. Sally’s mixed media works range from her classic faces to pure abstraction. She is inspired by her travels and all aspects of her life spill into her work. The energy she creates through her brushstrokes and palette is truly unique. Her visual voice is so strong and stays in the viewer’s mind long after seeing the work.
Her work has been featured in publications such as Elle Decor, Architectural Digest, Domino, Garden & Gun and Southern Living.
Sally lives and works in Atlanta, Georgia with her husband and their son, River.
The exhibition will be on view through October 26th.
