Hitchcock Health Center in Aiken, SC, Features Works by Ron Buttler

Award winning artist, Ron Buttler, will be featured as Artist of the Month at the Hitchcock Health Center in Aiken, SC, from Jan. 2 - 30, 2012. His exhibit, From Mild to Wild, will showcase recent work with small landscapes in oil and a series of three-dimensional mixed media paintings.

Buttler, originally from NY, moved to Aiken in 2006. He is a member of the Aiken Artist Guild, the North Augusta Artist Guild and the Art Association of Ridge Spring. His work is in private collection in the US and on display at the Art Center in Ridge Spring.

“I recently became interested in creating 3-D art. The paintings are on wood panels where parts of the surface protrude from the rest. To accomplish this “Bas Relief” effect, I build up the surface with paper mache, water putty, acrylic, and oil paint.” the artist describes his technique.

In 2011, Buttler received a Board of Director’s Award at the Aiken Center for the Arts and a second place ribbon at the North Augusta Arts and Heritage Center for his painting, Kalmia Plaza Sunset. He also received an Honorable Mention at the Aiken Center for the Arts in the category of Experimental/Abstract for his three-dimensional painting, Embryonic Breakout #1.
