Mildred Nix Huie (1907-2000) was a remarkable woman: American
Impressionist artist, sculptor, historian, and writer who in 1967 made the Mediterranean house her St. Simons Island studio, packing every inch with her artwork and memorabilia. Born in Augusta, Georgia, Mrs. Huie attended Shorter College in Rome, Georgia, graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Classical Education, and was 1950 Woman of the Year in Albany, Georgia. With a group of artists, Mrs. Huie established the Left Bank Art Gallery on St. Simons Island in 1962, beginning a long family tradition of sharing a love of arts and humanities with the Golden Isles community.
