Children and adults cheer as a labrador leaps off a dock and effortlessly flies through the air before landing into a pool of water. Not the typical event I think of when planning a trip to an art show, but neither is an exotic petting zoo or taxidermist booth.
Ever since moving to South Carolina, everyone has given me a list of must-see events to attend. Usually every list contains one event with a name so long in has been shortened into an acronym. The Southeastern Wildlife Exposition or SEWE, now in its 27th year, attracts artists from around the world to exhibit their pieces at the show. The expo is so big it is spread across several sites in downtown Charleston and attracts 40,000 visitors during the 3-day event.
