Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, Offers Works by William Jameson

Shain Gallery in Charlotte, NC, will present William Jameson, Solo Show, an exhibit featuring new work by gallery represented artist William Jameson, on view through Oct. 18 through Nov. 3, 2013. A reception will be held on Oct. 18, from 6-8:30pm.

Born in Honea Path, SC, in 1944, William Jameson returned to his home state after traveling and studying and painting abroad. While in college he studied at the Instituto Allende, San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuanto, Mexico. His graduate work in graphics and sculpture brought him stateside to the Ringling School of Art in Sarasota, FL.

If one-man exhibits defined Jameson’s long art career, there would be a long list to include over a twenty-five year period. His first one man show was in 1973 in Columbia, SC, followed by exhibits in New York City, NY, Savannah, GA, Charleston, SC, Bologna Italy and the Shain Gallery.

While in New York, his paintings were used in the Woody Allen films “Manhattan” and “Interiors”. Jameson and his remarkable oil paintings of nature have appeared in a dozen publications over his career. Teaching art became a career while Jameson was in Guanajuanto, Mexico in 1970 and continues today. He instructs artists in painting workshops he leads in Provence, France; Tuscany, Italy; San Miguel de Allende, Mexico; Blowing Rock, NC, and Charleston, SC.

Though Jameson calls Charleston, SC, home he recently completed building a studio in Saluda, NC. Jameson clearly conveys his intimate relationship with and understanding of nature and invokes the observer to involve all of their senses in experiencing the scene and to sit back and enjoy this window into an enhanced vision of the natural world.
