Exhibition at the Coastal Community Foundation

By Tina Christophillis

Feb 06th 2012


I recently installed an exhibition of paintings and drawings at the main office of the Coastal Community Foundation located on 635 Rutledge Ave., Suite 201.  The work will be on view until April 20.

The mission of the Coastal Community Foundation is to foster philanthropy for the lasting good of the community.  They are committed to taking the broadest perspective of community, as seen through their extensive nonprofit involvement and initiatives. Ranging from arts or health-related organizations to education programming, conserving the environment, strengthening neighborhoods and satisfying human needs, they are connected to the full spectrum of charitable and nonprofit organizations.

Established in 1974, Coastal Community Foundation is a public grant making foundation fostering philanthropy for the lasting good of the community in Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, and Jasper Counties. 

Thousands of families, businesses, individuals and organizations have built more than 570 individual funds and endowments at the Foundation to benefit specific charities and/or broad areas of community life – education, basic human needs, conservation and preservation, arts, health and neighborhood/community development. In its 38-year history, Coastal Community Foundation has awarded more than $100 million in grants.

Last year, Foundation funds generated over $9.8 million for charitable programming, community projects, educational initiatives and scholarships and Foundation assets topped $152 million. To learn more, go to:

The exhibition is in partnership with Redux Contemporary Art Center.

    Hi I'm Fotini 

    Welcome to my blog!

    I am a painter currently based in Greenville, South Carolina.  Through my work, I seek to communicate an internal narrative using traditional painting processes.  

    Here you will find information about what I am working on, recollections of my process, things that inspire me. I am asking questions about art, writing letters to myself, reflecting, learning, growing, discovering.  Thank you for joining and supporting the adventure.
