An experienced lecturer on the art
and architecture of eighteenth and nineteenth century Savannah, historian
Jeffrey Eley often uses the city itself as a textbook when teaching others. He
says that he enjoys studying the artwork of locals and tourists to “discover
wonderful new ways to see the treasures of this special place.”
Eley believes that, unlike
photographs, the blurry colors of watercolor art allow viewers to bring their
own feelings into a picture. A collection of more than 130 watercolor paintings
by twenty-one of Eley's art students, Savannah Sketchbook
takes readers on a colorful tour of the historic rivers, streets, beaches,
islands, and marshes of this small Georgia city whose beauty has captivated
tourists from all over the country. In addition to Savannah Sketchbook,
Eley also contributed the foreword to Pelican's title Small Gardens of
Savannah and Thereabouts.
A former professor of architecture
at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Eley is now the college's vice
president for academic affairs. He is a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth
University and the University of Virginia.
