Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville (SC) Features Works by Carl Blair

The Artists Guild Gallery of Greenville, in Greenville, SC, will present an exhibit of works by Guest Artist Carl R. Blair, on view from Oct. 1 - 31, 2011. A reception will be held on Oct. 7, from 6-9pm.

Blair was a native of rural Atchison, KS, where he discovered affection for the landscape as well as the love for animals on their farm. He says, “Nature is an inspiration and joy to me. If I know anything well in this world, it is my friends, animals and the landscape they inhabit and love.”

Blair was a member of the art faculty at Bob Jones University for forty-one years and he has taught for some twenty years at the Greenville County Museum of Art. He also has taught at the Governor’s School for the Arts and Humanities, and also the Greenville Fine Arts Center.

Blair’s paintings and sculptures are represented in more than 100 museums, galleries and institutions and more than 2500 private collections within the united States. He was honored for his contributions as an artist and an educator when he received the Elizabeth O’Neill Verner Award for Lifetime achievement in 2005. He is represented by Hampton III Gallery in Taylors, SC.
